Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Peter 1:2

_ _ Grace ... peace — (1 Peter 1:2).

_ _ throughGreek, “in”: the sphere IN which alone grace and peace can be multiplied.

_ _ knowledgeGreek,full knowledge.”

_ _ of God, and of Jesus our Lord — The Father is here meant by “God,” but the Son in 2 Peter 1:1 : marking how entirely one the Father and Son are (John 14:7-11). The Vulgate omits “of God and”; but oldest manuscripts support the words. Still the prominent object of Peter’s exhortation is “the knowledge of Jesus our Lord” (a phrase only in Romans 4:24), and, only secondarily, of the Father through Him (2 Peter 1:8; 2 Peter 2:20; 2 Peter 3:18).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Peter 1:1-4.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Peter 1:2

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you (2) through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
