Michelle Folks rated it liked it Jul 14, It calls on Christians to wait patiently for the parousia and to study scripture. The date of composition has proven to be very difficult to determine. Commentaries and reference books have placed 2 Peter in almost every decade from AD 60 to Taken literally, it would have been written between 65—68 AD because Peter was martyred around 68 AD by Nero and also because Peter references his approaching death in 2 Peter "since I know that the putting off of my body will be soon, as our Lord Jesus Christ made clear to me".
Most biblical scholars have concluded Peter is not the author, considering the epistle pseudepigraphical. The questions of authorship and date are closely related. For Petrine authorship to be authentic, it must have been written prior to Peter's death in c. AD 65— The letter refers to the Pauline epistles and so must post-date at least some of them, regardless of authorship, thus a date before 60 is improbable.
Further, it goes as far to name the Pauline epistles as "scripture"—the only time a New Testament work refers to another New Testament work in this way—implying that it postdates them by some time. AD —  and so contend that it is pseudepigraphical. Acceptance of the letter into the canon did not occur without some difficulty; however, "nowhere did doubts about the letter's authorship take the form of definitive rejection. Donald Guthrie suggests that "It is fair to assume, therefore, that he saw no reason to treat these doubts as serious, and this would mean to imply that in his time the epistle was widely regarded as canonical.
Origen, in another passage, has been interpreted as considering the letter to be Petrine in authorship. Eusebius c. The Peshitta , the standard version of the Bible for churches in the Syriac tradition , does not contain the Second Epistle of Peter and thus rejects its canonical status. In both content and style this letter is very different from 1 Peter. The epistle presciently declares that it is written shortly before the apostle's death Arguments have been made both for and against this being part of the original text, but this debate largely is centered on the acceptance or rejection of supernatural intervention in the life of the writer.
The epistle contains eleven references to the Old Testament. In , 16 a reference is made to one of Paul 's epistles, which some have identified as 1 Thessalonians — The book also shares a number of passages with the Epistle of Jude , with Jude 3; with Jude 5; with Jude 4; with Jude 6; with Jude 5; with Jude 7; —11 with Jude 8—9; with Jude 10; —17 with Jude 11—13; with Jude 16; f with Jude 17f; with Jude 18; with Jude 24; and with Jude Tartarus is mentioned in 2 Peter as devoted to the holding of certain fallen angels. It is elaborated on in Jude 6. Jude 6 however, is a clear reference to the Book of Enoch.
Bauckham suggests that 2 Peter is partially dependent on Jude 6 but is independently drawing on paraenetic tradition that also lies behind Jude 5—7. The paraenetic traditions are in Sirach —10, Damascus Document —, 3 Maccabees —7, Testament of Naphtali —5 and Mishna Sanhedrin The letter is usually outlined as follows: [ citation needed ].
