The Message of 1 Peter
The Bible Speaks Today Series
Author: Edmund P. Clowney
The message of Peter’s first letter turned the world upside-down for his readers. He saw the people of the young church of the first century as strangers, aliens who were only temporary residents, travelers heading for their native land.
Peter speaks to our own pilgrimage when he tells of suffering now and glory to come. Stormy seasons of persecution were beginning for the churches in Asian Minor. These storms rage on in the modern world.
Edmund Clowney believes that no true Christian can escape at least a measure of suffering for Christ’s sake. Out of his firsthand knowledge as an apostle of Christ, Peter shows us what the story of Jesus’ life means for us as we take up our cross and follow him.
