Peter’s two epistles are written to scattered and suffering Saints. In his first epistle he sought to encourage them amidst suffering and slander from the pagans. In this second epistle, Peter writes to warn them about false teachers who seek to deceive and destroy them. In this final chapter of his last recorded written word, Peter gives his last will and testament, a few final exhortations given false teachers’ growing danger. First, in 1 Peter 3:1-7, Peter exhorts believers to be mindful of the Scriptures and the scoffers. Second, in 1 Peter 3:8-13, Peter exhorts believers to be not ignorant about the doctrines of God and the End Times. In 1 Peter 3:14-16, Peter exhorts believers to be diligent to grow in holiness and godliness and be diligent in handling the Scriptures.
