Anchored in Identity: Opposition and The Identity of The People of God in 1 Peter
MetadataShow full item record
The message of 1 Peter is increasingly more relevant to the church in North America and will help to preserve the faith of believers as well as increase the witness of the church. Chapter 1 lays out the basis for this project and gives an overview of the texts that are covered. Chapter 2 grounds the believers’ identity as exiles, creating a deep connection to the Old Testament. Chapter 3 helps establish continuity between the Old and New in relation to the hope of the gospel, while chapter 4 details the call for holiness as God’s children. Chapter 5 looks at a cluster of Old Testament imagery that forms identity and chapter 6 speaks to the Christian identity as servants. Chapter 7 provides an Old Testament exhortation and example, and chapter 8 looks at the identity of the church as the household of God.
