1st Peter: Living in Christ: Bible Study/Commentary Series
This first letter of Peter's is filled with encouragement in the face of suffering, instructions on how we must live as God's holy people, advise on our attitudes towards government and secular authorities, and teaching for husbands, wives, and elders. Peter also calls us to be prepared to speak to those who ask about our faith in Christ, and instructs us on how to reply.
Peter was a man who understood human weakness, foolish boasting, and godly humility. He had been called from his quiet life of fishing to be a 'fisher of men', and all of the lessons he learned along the way he shares with us through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
