In this Volume

With vivid clarity these brief epistles build up their readers as they warn against false teachers who deceive and promote promiscuity. In this single volume, paired commentary, Rev. Dr. Curtis Giese considers the history of their reception in the church, including the early questions of canonicity and recent debates on their authorship. Giese argues that Jude was written by Jude the half-brother of Christ and that later Peter, inspired by the Holy Spirit, drew drew on that epistle for his own second letter. These epistles fortified the early church against the assaults of heresy, and they can do the same for the church today.


  • A faithful exploration of canonicity, applied to the early church and to today
  • Reconstruction of the congregational struggles and outside pressures facing the congregations of 2 Peter and Jude
  • A scholarly overview of authorial timelines for both epistles


  • Theosis and 2 Peter 1:4
  • The Book of Enoch and Jude’s reference

About the Author

The Reverend Dr. Curtis P. Giese is a professor in the Theology Division at Concordia University Texas in Austin, where he has taught Greek and New Testament since 2004. He was born and raised in Wausau, Wisconsin and received his education at Concordia University-St. Paul (B.A.), Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri (M. Div., S.T.M), Lutherische Theologische Hochschule, Oberursel, Germany, and Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Cincinnati, Ohio (M. Phil., Ph.D.) where his emphasis was Judaism in the Greco-Roman period.


“I have a great deal of respect for this series. It takes serious regard of the biblical text in its original language, and deals with both textual difficulties and theology.”

Dr. David Instone-Brewer, University of Cambridge.

"The Excursus on Eastern OrthodoxTheosis and 2 Peter 1:4 is particularly timely (62). Lutherans will appreciate the author's attention to detail, including citation of 2 Peter 3:9 on election (FC SD XI 81)."

Paul Cain, Pastor at Immanuel Lutheran, Sheridan Wyoming

"This volume is thoroughly researched and carefully composed. It stands as a fine resource for examining two epistles that urge each of us, “Continually guard yourselves… and continually grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 92 Peter 3:17-18. This commentary on 2 Peter and Jude would make a worthy addition to any pastor’s library."

Dr. Paul E. Zell, Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary

About the series

The Concordia Commentary Series: A Theological Exposition of Sacred Scripture is written to enable pastors and teachers of the Word to proclaim the Gospel with greater insight, clarity, and faithfulness to the divine intent of the Biblical text.

The series will cover all the canonical books of the Old and New Testament, with an original translation and meticulous grammatical analysis of the Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek of each text. The foremost interpretive lens centers on the unified proclamation of the person and work of Christ across every Scriptural book.

The Commentary fully affirms the divine inspiration, inerrancy, and authority of Scripture; Each passage bears witness to the confession that God has reconciled the world to Himself through the incarnation, ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ His Son.

Authors expose the rich treasury of language, imagery, and thematic content of the Scripture, while supplementing their work with additional research in archaeology, history, and extrabiblical literature. Throughout, God’s Word emanates from authors careful attention and inculcates the ongoing life of the Church in Word, Sacrament, and daily confession.
