Does Peter call Jesus "God" in 2 Peter 1:1?
by David Maas [5 pages]
rated at 1 (out of 5 votes)
In summary, the Granville Sharp Rule used to argue 2 Peter 1:1 is a statement of the deity of Jesus is invalid. This grammatical rule was “discovered” rather late by a well-intentioned Christian who was specifically looking for grammatical patterns that would “prove” the deity of Christ. Instead 2 Peter 1:1 has two persons in view, “our God” and the “savior, Jesus Christ.”
