God’s Word Is Our Firm Foundation | 2 Peter 1:19-21
What I believe Peter is telling us in these verses is that what the apostles’ experience on the mount of transfiguration confirmed and clarified the truth of the Old Testament, that the Messiah would come again to judge the world and to reign in glory over His redeemed people. Therefore, we must pay attention to that Word as a lamp that is shining in the dark until Christ returns. We must also be careful to interpret God’s Word correctly because this is not the Word of man, but rather it is the inspired Word of God. So, therefore, since God’s inspired Word is our firm foundation, we must pay careful attention to it and interpret it correctly.
