2 Peter 01 General Notes

Special concepts in this chapter

Knowing God

Christian spiritual growth is often described as knowing God more or knowing God better. This is because growing Christians understand the things of God better as they grow. (See: rc://en/tw/dict/bible/kt/spirit)

Forgetting what God has done

Peter believes Christians who are not leading godly lives have forgotten the cost of their salvation. He reasons: if they remembered their former lives and what Jesus has done, they would be sufficiently motivated to live godly lives. (See: rc://en/tw/dict/bible/kt/godly and rc://en/tw/dict/bible/kt/save)

Other possible translation difficulties in this chapter

Divine revelation

Peter describes Christianity as a religion which has been revealed and proved by God, and it is therefore implied that it is not a creation of man, like all other religions (except Judaism). (See: rc://en/tw/dict/bible/kt/reveal and rc://en/ta/man/translate/figs-explicit)
