1 Peter Introduction (Part 2)

1 Peter
1 PeterSteve Gregg

Steve Gregg delves into the context of 1 Peter in the second part of his introduction. He suggests that the fiery trials mentioned in chapter 4 may have been related to Nero's persecution of Christians, which some argue did not reach Asia at the time this letter was written. He also explores the use of the term "pilgrims" to refer to the dispersed Christians who were living in Gentile lands, and highlights the similarities between the teachings in 1 Peter and the words of Jesus. With a focus on the suffering and conduct of believers, the letter addresses theological points that serve as an opening to the subject matter.
