Publisher's Description

Explores the epistles’ reception history and their effects in sermons, music, art, literature, and politics over time

1, 2 Peter and Jude Through the Centuries considers three small epistles which are often overlooked in controversial discussions of theology, culture, art, music, politics, and literature. This book offers fresh perspectives on the epistles’ effects in numerous theological and cultural contexts such as slavery, the role of women in marriage, the nature of Christology, and how believers should relate to the government.

Author Rebecca Skaggs traces the reception history of 1 Peter, Jude, and 2 Peter and investigates the texts’ effects on diverse doctrinal, social and political issues. Their influence on artists, musicians, dramatists and literary writers is explored, especially the Doctrine of the Descent of Christ into Hades. Each chapter includes an overview of central issues and topics, a selection of ancient readings with interpretations and a brief survey of modern scholarship on the subject. Illuminating how readings vary across historical periods and interpretive communities, this book:

  • Traces the multi-faceted contributions of 1 and 2 Peter and Jude to theological discussions
  • Provides a sampling of the kinds of effects available from each of the texts in various contexts
  • Shows how the epistles engage in the discussions and controversies of the Medieval Ages
  • Offers discussions of the epistles’ contributions to doctrinal debates on the inspiration of scripture and how to respond to heresy in the church
  • Features detailed treatment of topics such as Christ’s visit to the spirits in prison, the dispute between Michael and Satan over Moses’ body and the final judgment by fire
  • Features commentary from a leading scholar in New Testament Studies and Christian Theology

Offering enlightening essays and new approaches, 1, 2 Peter and Jude Through the Centuries is an ideal book for anyone interested in the rich contributions of these epistles, such as Biblical and Theological Studies students, and pastors looking for original insights on reception material.
