Overview

"This commentary is full of careful historical exegesis that is especially well informed by the literature, philosophy, and rhetoric of the Greco-Roman world. It is an ideal companion to a detailed study of these still undervalued New Testament books."—Richard Bauckham, St. Andrews University, Scotland

"This solid commentary interprets the letters of Jude and 2 Peter in their original historical contexts by engaging relevant contemporary Greco-Roman sources while employing the best practices of current New Testament scholarship. Green ably demonstrates how understanding the socio-cultural world of the first century deepens our knowledge of the biblical message. I heartily commend this commentary to those who are interested in an in-depth study of Jude and 2 Peter by a seasoned evangelical scholar."—Karen H. Jobes, Wheaton College and Graduate School

"Gene Green has written a solidly conservative evangelical commentary on Jude and 2 Peter that is informed by ancient rhetorical practice and sociological observation. It contains a wealth of exegetical detail and judicious observations, which means that this work will have to be consulted by future scholars researching Jude and 2 Peter and will immediately profit pastors and Bible teachers exploring and applying these works in various contemporary settings. It is well worth the effort expended to work through the abundance of information that it presents."—Peter H. Davids, St. Stephen's University
