Description: As a very late and pseudepigraphical text, the Second Epistle of Peter is not always seen as an integral and fitting part of the New Testament canon. By highlighting its individual literary and theological profile as well as its various connections to early Christian literature inside and outside of later canonical collections, the present volume aims to contribute to a better informed and more detailed appreciation of both the irritating and inspiring aspects of Second Peter. The contributions cover a wide range of topics such as the canonical significance of the epistle, its intertextual and tradition-historical links, its contribution to the doctrine of inspiration, the “New Perspective on Second Peter”, Second Peter's re-use of traditions about Lot and even the presence of Second Peter in early modern translations of the New Testament into Hebrew. Contributors include Matthias Berghorn, Christian Blumenthal, Paul Foster, Jörg Frey, Wolfgang Gründstäudl, Michael Kok, Thomas J. Kraus, Tobias Nicklas, Marida Nicolaci, Uta Poplutz, Martin G. Ruf, Karl Matthias Schmidt, Marcus Sigismund, and Robert W. Wall.
