Peter’s first letter dealt with persecution from outsiders. This second letter concerns dangers within the church itself, from false teachers and those who fail to take the Scriptures seriously. The great value of 2 Peter is found in the apostle’s call to resist false teaching by growth in godliness, while we await the promised return of Jesus Christ.
