1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, To God’s elect, exiles scattered throughout the provinces of Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia, 2 who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to be obedient to Jesus Christ and sprinkled with his blood: Grace and peace be yours in abundance.   Usually, the book covers a lot of ground with flair and skill. For a look at Roman Christianity as the evidence seems to point, Peter Lampe's book is very good and it is very thorough, with lots of references and good, generous helpings of footnotes. I am rather glad that I read it, and I recommend it by: 2. 1 Peter gives persecuted Christians a powerful reminder that they have hope in the midst of their suffering. From the time of Abraham, God's people were a misunderstood minority and should expect to face hostility because they live under King Jesus' rule.   Author: 1 Peter identifies the author of the Book of 1 Peter as the apostle Peter. Date of Writing: The Book of 1 Peter was likely written between A.D. 60 and Purpose of Writing: 1 Peter is a letter from Peter to the believers who had been dispersed throughout the ancient world and were under intense persecution. If anyone understood persecution, it was Peter.

The book of 1 st Peter is a General Epistle (Apostolic Letter). It was written to all believers in general. The author is Peter who wrote it about 60 A.D. The key personalities are the Apostle Peter, Silas, and Mark. Its purpose was to encourage suffering Christians and to call them to personal holiness; Peter’s central focus is persecution. 3) Also the book itself states that Peter used Silas as his secretary (); this may account for its style. b. Historical Objections: 1) Persecution: Because of the persecution which these readers are facing (; , 15; , ; ) it assumed that this letter must have been written at a time when Christianity has become illegal.

Reviewed in the United States on Aug /5(9).   Making Peter a model for Christians may sound strange at first because the gospels relate many examples of Peter’s faithlessness — for example, his three denials of Jesus. Because of the varied traits ascribed to Peter, he may be the most fleshed-out character in the gospels.

  Peter in Early Christianity edited by Helen K. Bond and Larry W. Hurtado is a compilation of the nineteen essays presented at a conference organized by the Centre for the Study of Christian Origins at the University of Edinburgh/5. The book of 1 Peter was written during a great persecution happening to the church, because Peter mentions the "fiery trial" which the Christians were suffering under. Most likely it was the persecution under the Emperor Nero in 64 AD where Peter Himself was martyred. Most likely the book of 1 Peter was written in 63 AD just before his death. Writers from the earliest days of the Church tell us that Peter’s disciple Mark wrote down the apostle’s account of the life of Jesus as he told it to the first Christians in Rome. The vivid, detailed, unadorned prose of the Gospel of Mark conveys the unmistakable immediacy of a first-hand account/5(20). Christian tradition, for example Eusebius of Caesarea (History book 2, ), has maintained that Peter was killed in Nero's persecution, and thus had to assume that the Roman persecution alluded to in First Peter must be this Neronian zed: Pre-Congregation.
