Additional Reading and Links
- 1 Peter 3:18–20 describes Christ’s descent into Hades, the abode of the spirits of the dead, a doctrine Christians throughout the centuries have affirmed. For more on this subject, see David L. Paulsen, Roger D. Cook, and Kendel J. Christensen, “The Harrowing of Hell: Salvation for the Dead in Early Christianity,” Journal of the Book of Mormon and Other Restoration Scripture 19, no. 1 (2010): 56–77.
- 2 Peter 2:1–3:3 and the Epistle of Jude share a common base text. The common belief is that the author of 2 Peter copied this material from Jude’s Epistle; see Terrance Callan, “Use of the Letter of Jude by the Second Letter of Peter,” Biblica 85 (2004): 42–64.
