Session 1 of 8
Introduction and 1 Peter 1:1-9
Introduction. Life of Peter. Peter’s Confession.
As a member of the Inner Circle Peter was present at the Transfiguration, the raising of Jairus' daughter, and the closer circle at Gethsemane. This most vibrant personality's letters are rich in theology as well as practical exhortation, dealing with our living hope, suffering persecution for righteousness' sake, the use of heavenly gifts, patience in suffering, fidelity in service, and humility in ministering to one another.
Peter's letters also have a clear eschatonogical orientation, focusing on the Lord's coming and the end of the world, with warnings against false teachers-foreseeing the apostasy in which the professing church will end.
Written by one of the most colorful personalities who participated in the greatest adventures of human history, a careful study of these letters is a certain treat to the diligent student.
Presented by Dr. Chuck Missler.
