The late second century church ascribed the letter to Peter. There is a likely allusion to the book in 1 Clement, which was written about AD If this is correct, then this certainly moves the date of writing into the first century and, given the use of the first person and the early date, almost certainly makes Peter the author.

  Author: 2 Peter specifically states that the apostle Peter was the author of 2 Peter. Peter’s authorship of 2 Peter has been challenged more than that of any other book in the New Testament. However, the early church fathers found no good reason to reject it. The second letter is principally concerned with the Second Coming of Christ. The author attributes the apparent delay to God’s patience in allowing time for universal redemption and notes that in the sight of God 1, years are like one day. The writer also warns against false teachers, whose conduct is as immoral as their words are deceptive.

Introduction A. The Author From one perspective, this short epistle is the most disputed book in the NT canon as to authenticity. From another, the issue of authorship is already settled, at least negatively: the apostle Peter did not write this letter. The vast bulk of NT scholars adopts this second perspective without much discussion.

In my perspective, though 2 Peter is extremely.
