Bible (STE) NT 21-22: 1-2 Peter
Date: January 2016
Duration: 0 hours 43 minutes
The first epistle of Saint Peter was written in Rome 50-67 A.D.
Saint Peter exhorts Christians to rejoice in suffering. They should enter into unjust suffering with a spirit of death and resurrection. Thus they partake in Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection.
The date of the second epistle is most likely A.D 63-67.
Saint Peter has probably written this letter while he was kept in prison in Rome. The people to whom he was addressed are most likely Gentiles.
The world disbelieves, deceives and mocks. Yet, Christians should maintain the Christian way of life, growing continually in holiness and virtues and never turning back to the old way of leaving.
