1 Peter 1:1 - 1:2

1 Peter
1 PeterSteve Gregg

Steve Gregg provides an outline of the book of 1 Peter, which gives practical advice on Christian behavior based on Christian beliefs. The letter addresses the theme of suffering and was intended to be a closing statement on the suffering that believers will face. The audience is identified as the children of God scattered abroad, including both Jews and Gentiles, and the letter outlines the privileges and responsibilities attached to being chosen as a covenant people. Gregg highlights several theological points throughout the letter, including the idea that sanctification by the Spirit means being set apart, and that the sprinkling of the blood of Jesus cleanses and identifies believers as members of the covenant community.
