Jude and 2 Peter 2

Jude And 2 Peter 2 Refer To The Same Danger

Notice the similarities between 2 Peter 2 and 3 and the book of Jude. They were writing about the same danger in their day—the grace changers. In our time, we would call them the once saved always saved teachers. What you are about to read is how God sees these same false teachers:

JUDE: For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord. (Jude 1:4)

PETER: But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves. (2 Pet 2:1)

2 Peter 2:1-22 Expository Bible Study

JUDE: And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their own home--these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day. (Jude 1:6)

PETER: For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment; (2 Pet 2:4)

JUDE: In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire. (Jude 1:7)

PETER: if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; (2 Pet 2:6)

JUDE: In the very same way, these dreamers pollute their own bodies, reject authority and slander celestial beings. (Jude 1:8)

PETER: This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature and despise authority. Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings; yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the presence of the Lord. (2 Pet 2:10,11)

The Book of Jude Verse By Verse

JUDE: Yet these men speak abusively against whatever they do not understand; and what things they do understand by instinct, like unreasoning animals--these are the very things that destroy them. (Jude 1:10)

PETER: But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish. (2 Pet 2:12)

JUDE: Woe to them! They have taken the way of Cain; they have rushed for profit into Balaam's error; they have been destroyed in Korah's rebellion. (Jude 1:11)

PETER: With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning; they seduce the unstable; they are experts in greed--an accursed brood! They have left the straight way and wandered off to follow the way of Balaam son of Beor, who loved the wages of wickedness. (2 Pet 2:14,15)

JUDE: These men are blemishes at your love feasts, eating with you without the slightest qualm--shepherds who feed only themselves. They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind; autumn trees, without fruit and uprooted--twice dead. (Jude 1:12)

PETER: These men are springs without water and mists driven by a storm. Blackest darkness is reserved for them. (2 Pet 2:17)

JUDE: These men are grumblers and faultfinders; they follow their own evil desires; they boast about themselves and flatter others for their own advantage. (Jude 1:16)

PETER: This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature and despise authority. Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings; (2 Pet 2:10)

PETER: With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning; they seduce the unstable; they are experts in greed--an accursed brood! (2 Pet 2:14)

PETER: For they mouth empty, boastful words and, by appealing to the lustful desires of sinful human nature, they entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error. (2 Pet 2:18)

PETER: They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity--for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him. (2 Pet 2:19)

JUDE: They said to you, "In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires." (Jude 1:18)

PETER: First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. (2 Pet 3:3)

JUDE: These are the men who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit. (Jude 1:19)

PETER: They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity--for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him. (2 Pet 2:19)
