"But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destriction." 2 Peter 2:1 ESV
2 Peter 1:8 Lord is kyriou
2 Peter 1:11 Lord is kyriou
also 1:14; 1:16; 2:9; 2:11; 2:20; 3:20 and so on Lord is kyriou.
but in 2 Peter 2:1 "Master" is "despoten"."
Who is the "master" here?
A. The Lord Jesus Christ who paid/bought with His life?
B. An analogical master who buys some slaves with money, or at least, not with his life?
He becomes a master by having slaves, but the slaves do not acknowledge his ownership. What should the owner do with them? The point of the analogy is not what was or was not paid, but what should a master do with recalcitrant slaves.
Is the "master" A. Literal [the Master] or B. Analogical [a master]?
[There is another question on this site regarding this verse but I think it tends to assume that we all know and are agreed on the answer to the question I am asking here].
