Tackling these two historically underappreciated books, Peter Davids artfully reveals two fascinating epistles that deal with the confrontation between Greco-Roman world and the burgeoning first-century Jesus communities.
Davids takes on a number of thorny issues in this Pillar commentary, from Jude's overzealous of his opponents, to the reality of the final judgment. He firmly grasps of the overall structure of these oft-maligned epistles and presents a strong case for 2 Peter and Jude as coherent, consistent documents. Marked by exceptional exegesis, sharp, independent judgments and timely application to the concerns of the local church, Davids's work not only connects with the latest scholarship, but also transforms these scholarly insights into helpful conclusions that benefit all believers.
Informed, astute, and evangelical "The Letters of 2 Peter and Jude" display a careful balance between scholarship and pastoral concern, and is readily accessible for both teachers and students, pastors and thoughtful members of their churches.
