2 Pet. 1:14-15 “I know that I will soon put it aside this tabernacle, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me. And I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things.”
Peter knew that he was about to die. When Peter wrote this letter in 66AD, he died at the hands of the Romans, one year later. If you knew you were about to die, what would you want to pass on? What would you consider the most important truth to pass on? Hopefully it would concern the things that actually matter… the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Paul and Peter have a lot in common. Both knew when the time of their departure is at hand. Compare 2nd Peter and 2nd Timothy. 2nd Peter was Peter’s last letter just as 2nd Timothy was Paul’s last letter. It is believed that both books were written in 66AD, and their authors both died one year later in 67AD. And these two apostles had emphasized to us before their deaths are the importance of holding fast to the truth, the influence of false teachers, and events in the last days. I hope we will take heed on them.
