The Second Epistle of Peter or Peter 2 was written by the Apostle Peter likely between 65 and 68 A.D. It was to become one of his last epistles, as he was martyred in Rome under Emperor Nero in 68 A.D.
This book served as Peter’s final warning to his fellow Christians. He was alarmed at the growing number of false teachers who began to infiltrate the churches and attacked the Word of God. He warned the believers to watch out for these false teachers. Once again, he defended the Word and God and the return of Jesus were indeed authentic, unlike what the false teachers were trying to spread.
