2 Peter Chapter 1
Exhortations to add the exercise
of various other graces to faith 1-11. The apostle looks forward to
his approaching decease 12-15. And confirms the truth of the gospel,
relating to Christ's appearing to judgment 16-21.
2 Peter Chapter 2
Believers are cautioned against
false teachers, and the certainty of their punishment shown from
examples 1-9. An account of these seducers, as exceedingly wicked
10-16. But as making high pretences to liberty and purity 17-22.
2 Peter Chapter 3
The design here is to remind of
Christ's final coming to judgment 1-4. He will appear unexpectedly,
when the present frame of nature will be dissolved by fire 5-10.
From thence is inferred the need for holiness, and steadfastness in
the faith 11-18.
