    • Our Theme for 2012: Real FaithA Study of James, 1-2 Peter
    • A Key Theme in 2 Peter  Peter emphasizes “knowledge” repeatedly.
    • 2 Peter 1[2] Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord;
    • 2 Peter 1 [3] seeing that His divine power hasgranted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.
    • 2 Peter 1 [5] Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faithsupply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge,
    • 2 Peter 1[8] For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they renderyou neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    • 2 Peter 1[12] Therefore, I will always be ready to remind you of these things, even though you already know them, and have been established in the truth which is present with you.
    • Colossians 2:2b-3[2] …, resulting in a true knowledge of Gods mystery, that is, Christ Himself, [3] in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
    • 2 Peter 1:16-18 [16] For we did not follow cleverlydevised tales when we made knownto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty.
    • 2 Foundations of Peter’s Faith 1) First, Peter stresses the importance of eyewitnesses.
    • 2 Peter 1:16-18 [16] For we did not follow cleverlydevised tales when we made knownto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty.
    • 2 Peter 1:16-18 [17] For when He received honor and glory from God the Father, such an utterance as this was made to Him by the Majestic Glory, “This is Mybeloved Son with whom I am well-pleased”—
    • 2 Peter 1:16-18 [18] and we ourselves heardthis utterance made from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.
    • 2 Foundations of Peter’s Faith 2) Second, Peter stresses the importance of Scripture.
    • 2 Peter 1:19-21 [19] So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to whichyou do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and themorning star arises in your hearts.
    • 2 Peter 1:19-21[20] But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter ofones own interpretation, [21] for noprophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
    • 2 Timothy 3:16 [16] All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, forcorrection, for training in righteousness;
    • Matthew 5:18 [18] “For truly I say to you, untilheaven and earth pass away, notthe smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.
    • 1 Peter 1:12 [12] It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached thegospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things into which angels long to look.
    • 2 Peter 3:16 [16] as also in all his letters,speaking in them of these things,in which are some things hard tounderstand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.
    • 2 Peter 1:19-21 [19] So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to whichyou do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and themorning star arises in your hearts.
    • What Will I Do With Scripture?
    • 1 Peter 1:23-25[23] for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God.
    • What Will I Do With Scripture?  It gives us the power of spiritual life!
    • 1 Peter 1:23-25[23] for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God.
    • What Will I Do With Scripture?  It builds within us an imperishable life!
    • 2 Peter 1:19 [19] So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to whichyou do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and themorning star arises in your hearts.
    • In a world filled with its own knowledge, let us build our beliefs on the enduring word of God.
