Description: Scholars engage the best contemporary work on 1–2 Peter and Jude in this student-oriented book. The first four chapters in this collection—on authorship and pseudonymity, literary relationships among the three books, epistolary rhetoric, and apocalyptic elements—consider important, foundational issues related to all three epistles. These essays lay the groundwork for more focused chapters that examine theology and theory in 1 Peter as well a stylistic, theological, and thematic overlap in Jude and 2 Peter.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Hebrews and Catholic Epistles, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, Jude, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Literary Approaches, Canonical Criticism, Rhetorical Criticism, Theological Approaches, Biblical Theology, New Testament Theology, History of Interpretation
