Item description for 2 Peter, Jude (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries) by Jerome H. Neyrey...
Overview This fascinating study not only provides an entirely new translation of both 2 Peter and Jude, but also offers stirring commentary on the text that takes the reader inside groups located at the very edges of Christianity. Neyrey shows what it must have been like to lead a Christian life amid an unsympathetic environment and a treacherous imperial society.
Publishers Description This is a translation and study of two of the more obscure books of the New Testament. Written after the death of Jesus and his Apostles, they offer a glimpse into the turbulent life of early Christian communities in the Roman and Greek world.
