L. M. Grant's Commentary on the Bible

2 Peter

- 2 Peter

by L.M. Grant

This epistle maintains still the principles of God's government, though being a second epistle it contemplates conditions of failure and breakdown for which special grace is needed. The provision of Ch.1 is of vital value in view of pressures of corruption and falsehood prophesied of in Ch.2 (which are prevalent today), and of the awesome judgment of God and His great power in His creation of a new heaven and new earth, as declared In Ch.3.
