First Peter

The Book of the First Peter in the BibleFirst Peter was written by Jesusdisciple, Peter. It’s audience was Gentile (that is non-Hebrew) followers of Jesus, joining together many aspects of the Jewish history with Christian beliefs.

This book is a warm and attractive read that is ideal for those who have just begun to follow Jesus, yet it’s equally instructive for more seasoned followers, as well.

A reoccurring theme in this book is suffering. This concept may be antithetical to the popular notion that in effect says, “follow Jesus and life will be easy.” This attitude is a social gospel that isn’t supported by the Bible. In truth there may be risk and suffering for those who follow Jesus.
