ABOUT THE BOOK OF 1 PETER

Paul-the-Apostle-epistle-prison-Ephesians.jpg

Like the original hearers of the letter, we need to be reminded that this place is not our home.

Thirty years or so after His death, burial, resurrection, & ascension, the followers of Jesus found themselves facing persecution. 

Rather than rebuking the Christians under the beginning of persecution, Peter instead reminds them of their identity. He strongly, yet graciously, reminds them who they are in Christ. They have been chosen by God for this very moment. He calls them, "Elect Exiles."
