1. Background of 2 Peter
Peter was writing to steadfast believers (3.17) negatively influenced by false teachers within the assembly (2.1). He writes in defense of his Apostleship (1.1; 3.2) and the Apostolic faith to contradict the false teaching that Christ is not returning (3.4) and judgment will not be affected upon the unrighteous (3.7-13).
