The internal debate focuses more on style, ideology, and relationship to the other works. The internal arguments against the authenticity of 2 Peter have gained significant popularity since the 1980s. The historical Peter probably could not write any works because he was “unlettered” as mentioned in Acts 4:13 or a fisherman from Capernaum, a comparatively small and probably monolingual town, in a time and province where there was little literacy. Thus, the background of Peter would make it improbable that he could write a Greek letter. Paul, on the other hand, was a Pharisaic scholar. Peter was characterized as a speaker and not a writer. How much education do you need to write a letter in another language other than your native language?
