Dr. Kenneth Gangel offers a summary of the reasons Peter wrote his second letter.

This final impassioned plea to grow in Christian maturity (2Pe 1:5, 6, 7, 3:18) and guard against false teachers was precipitated by the fact that [Peter’s] time was short (2Peter 1:13, 14, 15) and that these congregations faced immediate danger (2Peter 2:1, 2, 3). He also desired to refresh their memories (2Peter 1:13) and stimulate their thinking (2Peter 3:1, 2) so they would remember his teaching (2Peter 1:15).... And he encouraged his readers with the certainty of Christ’s return (2Peter 3:1-16). (Today in the Word)

A Dr. Congdon once approached Bible teacher R. A. Torrey, complaining he could get nothing out of his Bible study.

 

“Please tell me how to study it so that it will mean something to me.”


“Read it,” replied Dr. Torrey.


“I do read it.”


“Read it some more.”


“How?”


“Take some book and read it twelve times a day for a month.”

 

Torrey recommended Second Peter. Dr. Congdon later said,

 

“My wife and I read 2 Peter three or four times in the morning, two or three times at noon, and two or three times at dinner. Soon I was talking 2 Peter to everyone I met. It seemed as though the stars in the heavens were singing the story of 2 Peter. I read 2 Peter on my knees, marking passages. Teardrops mingled with the crayon colors, and I said to my wife,

 

“See how I have ruined this part of my Bible.”


“Yes,” she said, “but as the pages have been getting black, your life has been getting white.”

John Calvin - "The majesty of the Spirit of Christ exhibits itself in every part of the epistle" (of Second Peter).

J Sidlow Baxter - "Peter is distinctively the apostle of hope, as is Paul of faith, James of works and John of love....There are always two tests of Christian genuineness. The doctrinal test is 'What is the attitude tot he person and work of Christ?' The practical test is 'What is the resultant character and conduct?' Both tests appear in Second Peter. Note the two dangers indicated in the first chapter. There is the danger of life without growth (2Peter 1:3-8); and there is the danger of knowledge without practice (2Peter 1:9-14). Life never remains static: it either goes forward or backward. Life without growth becomes atrophy. Similarly knowledge without practice becomes blindness instead of vision (2Peter 1:9). It is vital to be members of the 'progressive party.'...To be forewarned is to be forearmed says the old proverb. Study carefully Peter's forewarning in 2Peter 2:1-3ff. It is a point of incidental interest that in 2Pe 2:14 and 2Pe 2:18 the word translated as "be beguiling" (enticing) and "allure" (entice) in the Greek is literally to take with a bait - a relic from Peter's fishing days. "Beware," says Peter in effect, 'Your most dangerous deceivers are those who come with a tasty bait and a concealed hook!' Let this second chapter convince us that wherever there is a Divine truth which saves, there will be a Satanic counterfeit which damns: so will it be until the arch-deceiver is flung into the abyss. What a scathing exposure is this second chapter! There is no "mincing of words" or "beating about the bush." There can be no tolerance of that which, inside the very Church itself, dishonors Christ and ruins soul. There can be no "dainty handling" of false teachers! A viper can be a gorgeous creature to look at, but once let its poison fang get you, or its strangle-coils enwrap you...! Peter sees the issue with Spirit-anointed clearness. There can be no compromise. Remember, this second chapter is not merely Peter speaking; it is the Spirit of God. It may well make some of us think deeply. When easy-going kindness lounges in the place of righteous indignation, and allows Christ-dishonoring false doctrine to play havoc inside the Church, kindness has ceased to be Christian, it has become disguised disloyalty, camouflaged cowardice, or a moral wasting-disease." (Baxter's Explore the Book-J. Sidlow Baxter-recommended)

Henry Alford (1810-1871)
(Read his fascinating brief biography - Henry Alford and Phil Johnson's related comments)
The New Testament for English Readers
2 Peter
Commentary
Recommended

James Rosscup writes that Alford's series on the New Testament "contains much that is valuable in the Greek New Testament...though all of the Greek New Testament words have been changed to English throughout." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works).

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (see his comments in following entry on Alford).

Editorial Note: If you are not proficient in Greek, you will find this work considerably more useful than the following work by Alford, because in this volume he translates the Greek and Latin into English. While the "The Greek New Testament" is longer (e.g., English version of 1John = 66 pages compared to Greek version = 94 pages in part because the latter includes comments of more technical nature), the substance of the commentary is otherwise similar to that found in the "NT for English Readers".

Henry Alford
The Greek New Testament
2 Peter
Commentary
Recommended

James Rosscup writes that "This was the great work in the life of the versatile Dean of Canterbury. An outcome of this production was the New Testament for English Readers (4 vols.). Alford was a Calvinist, conservative and premillennial, though not dispensational. He takes a literal interpretation of the thousand years in Rev. 20 and has a famous quote there, is strong on sovereign election as in Ro 8:29, 30 and 1Pe 1:2, but, unfortunately, holds to baptismal regeneration in such texts as Titus 3:5 and John 3:5. He shows a great knowledge of the Greek text and faces problems of both a doctrinal and textual nature." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works)

John Piper writes ""When I’m stumped with a...grammatical or syntactical or logical [question] in Paul, I go to Henry Alford. Henry Alford...comes closer more consistently than any other human commentator to asking my kinds of questions."

Charles Haddon Spurgeon writes that this text "is an invaluable aid to the critical study of the text of the New Testament. You will find in it the ripened results of a matured scholarship, the harvesting of a judgment, generally highly impartial, always worthy of respect, which has gleaned from the most important fields of Biblical research, both modern and ancient, at home and abroad. You will not look here for any spirituality of thought or tenderness of feeling; you will find the learned Dean does not forget to do full justice to his own views, and is quite able to express himself vigorously against his opponents; but for what it professes to be, it is an exceedingly able and successful work. The later issues are by far the most desirable, as the author has considerably revised the work in the fourth edition. What I have said of his Greek Testament applies equally to Alford’s New Testament for English Readers,* which is also a standard work." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

Albert Barnes
2 Peter Commentary

James Rosscup writes that Barnes "includes 16 volumes on the Old Testament, 11 on the New Testament. The New Testament part of this old work was first published in 1832–1851. Various authors contributed. It is evangelical and amillennial...Often the explanations of verses are very worthwhile." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

C H Spurgeon "Albert Barnes is a learned and able divine, but his productions are unequal in value, the gospels are of comparatively little worth, but his other comments are extremely useful for Sunday-school teachers and persons with a narrow range of reading, endowed with enough good sense to discriminate between good and evil....Placed by the side of the great masters, Barnes is a lesser light, but taking his work for what it is and professes to be, no minister can afford to be without it, and this is no small praise for works which were only intended for Sunday-school teachers." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

Commentary on 2 Peter
Gnomon of the New Testament

James Rosscup writes "This work (Gnomon), originally issued in 1742, has considerable comment on the Greek, flavoring the effort with judicious details about the spiritual life. It has much that helps, but has been surpassed by many other commentaries since its day." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

Johann Bengel
The Critical English Testament

Commentary on 2Peter
Represents Combination of Bengel's Gnomon (above) and Comments
by more modern expositors (in brackets) to make this more usable for those who do not read Greek.

Spurgeon comments on the goal to make Bengel's Gnomon (listed above) more accessible -- "Such is the professed aim of this commentary, and the compilers have very fairly carried out their intentions. The whole of Bengel’s Gnomon is bodily transferred into the work, and as 120 years have elapsed since the first issue of that book, it may be supposed that much has since been added to the wealth of Scripture exposition; the substance of this has been incorporated in brackets, so as to bring it down to the present advanced state of knowledge. We strongly advise the purchase of this book, as it...will well repay an attentive perusal. Tischendorf and Alford have contributed largely...to make this one of the most lucid and concise commentaries on the text and teachings of the New Testament" (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

2 Peter Commentary
Preface

James Rosscup gives Bigg's commentary on 1 Peter high marks (and he also recommends 2Peter but no additional comments): "This is probably the second best older study on I Peter from the standpoint of the Greek text. Selwyn is the other. As other ICC works, it deals with details of philology, grammar and possible views on problems."  (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works)

With Four Additional Discourses

Recommended

James Rosscup writes "Brown was minister of Broughton Place, Edinburgh (1829–58), at which post he died. He gives rich, solid comments verse by verse and can refresh any Christian in his devotional times or help a preacher pull together facets of truth and how they relate to life. To Brown, making the calling and election sure refers not to seeing to their existence but to the evidence of them (p. 53). Some, however, feel that they are saved when they are far from it (54). He is helpful on furnishing the virtues in verses 5–8. After 225 pages the rest of the book is given to other discourses on how Christians may have proper assurance of salvation, pray for the preacher (Ephesians 6:19), etc." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works)

Top 5 Commentaries on the Books of 2 Peter and Jude by Keith Mathison

Best Commentaries on 2 Peter & Jude - Challies Dot Com

Select Comments from Jim Rosscup: Commentaries For Biblical Expositors (recommended resource)

Bauckham, Richard J. Jude, 2 Peter (Word Biblical Commentary). Waco, TX: Word Books, 1983. 357 pp. - Some will not think the work evangelical. It has discussion looking at the Greek exegesis in some detail and with competence and showing a high familiarity with literature on the epistles as well as extra-biblical sources he feels pertains. In some cases he offers a spread of possibilities on views and arguments on problems. His bibliography is extensive. He will disturb many readers with his denial of authorship by Peter (he says the church at Rome produced it), and his view that the early readers would not disrespect it for being pseudonymous but take its message to heart as “a faithful mediator of the apostolic message” (pp. 161–62). Bauckham’s view of inspiration is hazy, and he leaves students unsure whether he feels that any of the predictions or statements in the two epistles are objectively, actually true. In his thinking II Peter is dependent on Jude. The work is flawed in some of its doctrinal content but impressive in its help on exegesis and highly regarded in the academic community.

Gangel, Kenneth. “2 Peter,” in Bible Knowledge Commentary, ed. John F. Walvoord and Roy B. Zuck, Volume II. Wheaton: Victor Books, 1985. - A brief but often substantial tracing of the message verse by verse, dealing with problems fairly well or at least giving views. Gangel uses Greek word study (1:5, epichoregeo), feels the blind in 1:9 are carnal but saved, apparently favors saying that “they” in 2:20 refers to unstable, unsaved people who were “listeners” in verse 18, but gives four views, etc. He is premillennial in his “day of the Lord” concept in 3:10–13.

Gardner, Paul. 2 Peter and Jude (Focus on the Bible). Geanies House, Fearn, Ross-shire, Scotland: Christian Focus Publications, 1998. - One can be impressed with this, among brief efforts, for some sensible, flowing exposition after convictions that the Apostle Peter wrote 2 Peter and Jude, the half brother of Jesus, wrote the letter of Jude. The work can be frequently clear (2 Pet. 1:20–21), or nebulous (as on the status of those who need to make sure, 2 Pet. 1:9–10, or how or when the angels sinned in 2:4). Overall the commentary is mediocre in covering issues. But stimulating thoughts appear on how Jude, much neglected, is relevant today for preaching (145–46).

Green, Michael E. The Second Epistle General of Peter and the General Epistle of Jude (Tyndale New Testament Commentary). Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1968. - An articulate evangelical commentary, upholding the Petrine authorship after a careful weighing of evidence, then explaining the text carefully though concisely. It rates as one of the best overall brief works.

Hiebert, D. E. Second Peter and Jude. Greenville, SC: Unusual Publications, 1989. 324 pp. -He takes conservative positions, even seeing Jude as following Peter’s second epistle. He usually has something clarifying on a verse and displays considerable awareness of views and issues. Preachers and lay readers will find his present work worth the time.

Lloyd-Jones, D. M. Expository Sermons on Peter. Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth Trust, 1983. 263 pp. Trust, 1983. 263 pp. Rp 1999. - The book gives 25 sermons preached in 1946–47, the preacher’s first series through a book of Scripture. He delivered the messages at Westminster Chapel, London. He usually includes 1–4 verses in a sermon and moves through the epistle. One is soon aware that Lloyd-Jones has much insight, explaining the essentials of the text adeptly and developing how these have vital force for living in this world. The book is a primer for expositors and refreshing for Christians in general.

Lucas, Dick, and Christopher Green. The Message of 2 Peter & Jude (The Bible Speaks Today). Downers Grove, IL: IVP. 1995. - Lucas, a fine expository preacher, did the two introductions, Green the verse by verse comments. Little is done before 2 Peter to define in any substantial way who the false teachers are, but their characteristics are made clear both in 2 Peter and Jude. The Apostle Peter is assumed as the author (2 Pet.) and Jude the half brother of Jesus (Jude). The commentary expounds details in an eminently lucid way, clearly setting forth points and giving content that can foster growth along lines of productive godliness (2 Pet. 1:5–7 is worth the read, as are remarks about unorthodox teaching and life-style in 2 Pet. 2). Green does not view the corrupt teachers of 2:20–22 as ever having been truly saved (122), but only as having known in public confession, or claim. He gives six points of counsel on how to deal with such cases in the church (120–21). For both books, the practical exposition is quite well-done, useful for pastors, students, and lay people.

Wuest, Kenneth S. In These Last Days: Studies in the Greek Text of II Peter, John and Jude For the English Reader. Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1957. - This work is recommended as a very good simple book to give to a layman to stimulate his study. It is also good for the pastor and Sunday school teacher because it deals with the Greek word meanings verse-by-verse and has a warm devotional strain.

Rosscup: Mayor, J. B. The Epistles of Jude and Second Peter: The Greek Text with Introduction, Notes and Comments. Grand Rapids: Baker, 1979. - This is quite a good older work on the Greek exegesis by the man who did an outstanding commentary on James. Mayor is more for serious students who know the Greek and are ready to read more technical detail on verses without being overcome.

Mayor, Joseph. The Second Epistle of St. Peter and the Epistle of St. Jude. NY: Macmillan, (n. d.). - Along with Bigg, this is an old, detailed study of the Greek text which the student will want to have.

2 Peter 1 Commentary

2 Peter 3 Commentary

 

DISCLAIMER: Before you "go to the commentaries" go to the Scriptures and study them inductively (Click 3 part overview of how to do Inductive Bible Study) in dependence on your Teacher, the Holy Spirit, Who Jesus promised would guide us into all the truth (John 16:13). Remember that Scripture is always the best commentary on Scripture. Any commentary, even those by the most conservative and orthodox teacher/preachers cannot help but have at least some bias of the expositor based upon his training and experience. Therefore the inclusion of specific links does not indicate that we agree with every comment. We have made a sincere effort to select only the most conservative, "bibliocentric" commentaries. Should you discover some commentary or sermon you feel may not be orthodox, please email your concern. I have removed several links in response to concerns by discerning readers. I recommend that your priority be a steady intake of solid Biblical food so that with practice you will have your spiritual senses trained to discern good from evil (Heb 5:14-note).
