Many of the 1st century Christians believed that Jesus was going to return to the earth in their life time. But when Peter wrote 2 Peter it had been over 30 years since Jesus rose from the dead and many of the Christians were dying, which produced a lot of confusion.
So Peter writes very clearly about what they and we can expect on The Day of the Lord! This gives us hope!
