Variety and Unity in New Testament Thought

The Second Epistle General of St. Peter, as a letter of three chapters has sometimes been known through claims to be by ‘the prince of the apostles’ and it refers to I Peter, and the little note said simply to be by Jude, and forms a sub-corpus within the catholic epistles and the New Testament canon. They have certain features in common. Each letter has been attributed to a prominent early Christian figure, one to the leader of the twelve apostles, Peter, the other to the ‘brother of James’ and on the tradition that this is James, a brother of the Lord. The two letters have been recognized over the centuries as sharing certain similarities of content. Of course, there are differences in the way the key words and phrases in these ‘parallels’ are used. There are verses unique to Jude, like the closing benediction.
