1) The promise of fame One inspirational phrase, Peter reveals the deep content of the promise of Jesus Christ, we are made partakers of the divine nature. This promise has no equal in the New Testament, and Sidebottom calls it "terrific-sounding melody in the Second Epistle of Peter" . Some authors have expressed dissatisfaction with this approach and call it poluyazycheskim. "It is difficult to find in the New Testament saying that by its intensity, motives and the general orientation of thought would express more clearly the return of Christianity to the Hellenistic dualism" . However, this is a unique phrase in the New Testament, but not a unique idea. Peter wrote in his first letter that the Christians will become complicit in "the glory that shall be revealed" (1 Peter 5: 1.), And Paul writes about our "adoption" that God "predestined" us "to be conformed to the image His Son "(Rom 8:. 23.29). And, of course, the key phrase is Paul's "in Christ" and "with Christ" determines our destiny to be with Jesus Himself (see eg .: Romans 6:.. 1-14; Ephesians 1:20; 2: 6.).
