2 Peter 3:1-10

  1. What arguments do the scoffers of verse 3 use? What is the best defence against them (verse 2)?
  2. In verses 5-7 Peter refutes the scoffers by reference to the unfailing fulfillment of God’s word. Explain from these three verses how the words and actions of God in the past assure us that in the future he will again do what he has said. Is there a similarity between the people of Noah’s day and our own (Cf. Matt. 24:37-39)?
  3. Why is ‘the day’ so slow in coming (verse 9)? Cf. Ezek. 18:23, 32.

Note. Verse 10. ‘Elements’: the material elements of the universe, but, as many think, with specific reference to the heavenly bodies.
