Our Faith Can Hold

The end of 2 Peter 1 is a powerful reminder of the faith delivered to us. The witness of those who carefully witnessed the glory of Christ, and those who came before who heard from God, stand in history as something to which we can anchor our faith. It is a powerful passage to reflect on!

16 We didn’t repeat crafty myths when we told you about the powerful coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Quite the contrary, we witnessed his majesty with our own eyes. 17He received honor and glory from God the Father when a voice came to him from the magnificent glory, saying, “This is my dearly loved Son, with whom I am well-pleased.” 18 We ourselves heard this voice from heaven while we were with him on the holy mountain. 19 In addition, we have a most reliable prophetic word, and you would do well to pay attention to it, just as you would to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 20 Most important, you must know that no prophecy of scripture represents the prophet’s own understanding of things, 21 because no prophecy ever came by human will. Instead, men and women led by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. (2 Peter 1:16-21, CEB)

  1. Amen. And that most of them died for that witness anchors that testimony. If they had truly made the whole thing up, surely at persecution unto death at least one would have cracked.

    But no, Their testimony held sure and true to Jesus.
