This volume is dedicated to the study of three late, little-known biblical works that historically have been relegated to the lesser works of the New Testament. "Reading 1 Peter, Jude, and 2 Peter" underscores the light that these letters shed upon one another and focuses on the snapshots they provide of early Christian communities as they encountered the social and religious environment in which they were situated. Careful reading of 1 Peter reveals the complex world of the post-apostolic period. Jude and 2 Peter provide a sober look at the early community's evolution in doctrinal and moral terms.
