The Abingdon New testomony Commentaries series deals compact, severe commentaries at the writings of the recent testomony. those commentaries are written with designated awareness to the wishes and pursuits of theology scholars, yet they're going to even be helpful for college students in upper-level university or college settings, in addition to for pastors and different church leaders. as well as supplying easy information regarding the recent testomony texts and insights into their meanings, those commentaries exemplify the initiatives and techniques of cautious, severe exegesis.

In this quantity of the Abingdon New testomony Commentaries sequence, Steven J. Kraftchick either reviews those epistles of their past due first century context and discusses their relevance to the modern Christian church. the writer discusses the significance of the insider/outsider language, the tough polemical tone of either letters, and their reliance upon the previous testomony and either early Jewish and Greco-Roman thought. 

"Because of the various similarities among Jude and moment Peter (the latter most likely made use of the former), Kraftchick emulates many commentators by way of treating the 2 epistles jointly. In antiquity few writers commented upon moment Peter; the letter is little utilized in the liturgy. yet this doesn't cut down its significance as offering an perception into facets of existence within the early church. Kraftchick sees moment Peter as probably originating within the interval 90-100 CE (earlier than many commentators). Its pseudonymous authorship and nature as a 'farewell testomony' have been universal sufficient on the time, permitting the author to cloak his personal arguments within the clothing of a respected, authoritative personage of the earlier. The letter's educating at the hold up of the parousia is between its so much impressive beneficial properties; it's the simply NT writing to educate that the current global can be destroyed via fireplace, notwithstanding any such concept is located in intertestamental Jewish writings and one of the Stoics. Kraftchick brings not anything startlingly new to an already well-furrowed exegetical box, yet his ability at synthesis and readability of expression should be liked by way of the scholars for whom this complete sequence is intended."--Casimir Bernas, Holy Trinity Abbey, in Religious experiences Review, quantity 29 quantity three, July 2003.
