1 Peter by Robert Dean
If you have an inquiring mind, you’ll enjoy hearing many vital questions answered about 1 Peter. Listen to this lesson to learn whom the intended audience for this book was: Gentiles or Jews. Several supporting reasons for the majority view that it was addressed to Gentiles are discussed but stronger arguments are convincing in the belief that it was intended for Jews, including terminology and the quoting of Old Testament passages. Another question concerns where Peter was when he wrote this book and historical Babylon seems to be the most likely location. Next, we ask, why was this epistle written? Based on the number of times the word suffering and words for adversity are used, it becomes obvious that the audience for the book were undergoing persecution and troubles in their life. Look forward to the encouragement and strength we can derive for our own lives from a study of this book.
