2 Peter & Jude (LifeChange) (Paperback)
Persecution from the Outside, Dangers from Within
The early church had faced persecution from outside the community. Now they were defending themselves from dangers within. Internal differences were not uncommon--but these churches were facing teachers who distorted the gospel for their own gain. Peter and Jude denounce these for-profit teachers and encourage Christ followers to stand firm in the faith, secure in the promise that Jesus will someday return.
