Taught by Rob Norris. Peter writes to encourage Christians in a time of persecution and suffering. Christ’s resurrection and heavenly enthronement are proof that suffering in the will of God leads to certain eternal reward, resting in the sure hope of the return of Jesus. Awaiting his return, Peter and Jude exhort believers to keep themselves in the love of God and fight against the evil of false teachers.
Each week, small groups will engage in online discussions based on home study questions prepared in advance.
