Who, How, What, Why?
1 Peter 2v9-25 • November 29, 2020 • Bert Alcorn
Peter sets the identity for all believers, for all time, by applying the finished work of Jesus to us, demonstrating the fulfillment of God’s promise and the completeness of the redeeming work of Jesus, and shaping how we live in light of that reality.
To The Diaspora
1 Peter 1v1-2 • September 6, 2020 • Bert Alcorn
The Christian world has scattered throughout the Roman Empire, citizenship and culture are huge questions and Peter writes a letter to answer questions about what it means to be a follower of Jesus in a foreign land. So much of our identity is highlighted in Peter’s language to open this letter. With his words, we can easily step into the role of the recipients of this letter. Who is God, what has he done, who am I, and how then should I live will be a framework for understanding Peter’s writing.
