3. It is inscribed to dispersed Jews.
That this second Epistle also was intended for the same people to whom the first Epistle was inscribed, is argued by the words of 2 Peter 3:1, ταύτην ἤδη, ἀγαπητοί, δευτέραν ὑμῖν γράφω ἐπιστολήν, this second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you. Also, that it was written to converted Jews, the words of 2 Peter 1:19 show, we have a more sure word of prophecy. For, the prophetic word came to the Jews, not to the Gentiles. The former, not the latter, had Moses and the Prophets, Luke 16:31; Romans 9:4. Nevertheless converted Gentiles, and so all Christians, are no less able able to make this Epistle their own.
