Help Me Teach the Bible: Jonathan Gibson on 2 Peter

Jonathan Gibson on 2 Peter

Nancy Guthrie talks with Jonathan Gibson about how to teach the book of 2 Peter

In this episode, I talk with Jonathan Gibson, newly appointed assistant professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary, about the book of 2 Peter. Jonny and his wife, Jackie, recently moved to the states from Cambridge, England, where he served as associate minister of Cambridge Presbyterian Church. He has a PhD in Hebrew studies from Cambridge University and has also studied and lectured at Moore Theological College in Sydney. He is a contributor to and co-editor (with David Gibson) of From Heaven He Came and Sought Her: Definite Atonement in Historical, Biblical, Theological, and Pastoral Perspective
Gibson posits that “ethics by eschatology” is the theme of the neglected book of 2 Peter, and that the ethics of all people are, in actuality, shaped by eschatology. Our conversation also covers the Day of the Lord, false teachers, and what Peter means when he says Jesus will come “like a thief in the night” and the earth will dissolve.
