2 Peter 2

  1. Although we have the ‘light’ of prophecy, it is necessary to beware of false teachers. Note from today’s passage the forms of evil in witch the false teachers indulged. By which of these are you most liable to be snared? How far is this kind of behavior seen in modern society? How would you meet the claim of those who profess to be free from the restraints of convention (verse 19, cf. John 8:34-36)? Cf. verse 20 with Matt. 12:43-45; Heb. 6:4-8.

Note. Verses 4-10 are parenthetical, interrupting the description of the false teachers, which is resumed in 10b.
