A Study on 1 Peter
Suffering for Being a Christian
1 Peter 4: 12-19 • July 7, 2019 • Dr. Jeannine Brown
In this passage, Peter sums up key themes from his letter to Christians in Asia Minor. They should not be surprised by the suffering they are experiencing but are encouraged to see it through the lens of Christ’s own suffering.
Living Out the Life of Christ with our Families
1 Peter 2: 18 - 3:7 • June 16, 2019 • Dr. Mark Strauss
Peter continues his instruction on how to live as Christ-followers in an often alien and hostile pagan society. Just as Jesus suffered in order to bring us salvation, so our suffering in the world can produce healing and redemption through the example we set for others.
