Peter's List of Virtues

And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity
. 2 Peter 1:5-7

Try reading 2 Peter 1:5-7 like this:

"Add to your faith the virtue of Joseph; and to virtue the knowledge of Solomon; and to knowledge the temperance of Samuel; and to temperance the patience of Job; and to patience the godliness of Daniel; and to godliness the brotherly kindness of Jonathan, and to brotherly kindness the charity of John."

(Booker, George., By The Way, ChristadelphianBooksOnline, Section I)


  1. Interesting... My favorite is the brotherly kindness of Jonathan!
