On May 1, 2022 Dr. Silman began a sermon series on I Peter.
Peter’s first letter turned the world upside-down for those to whom he penned the epistle. He saw the first century church members as strangers and aliens heading for their native land – heaven.
Peter addresses the suffering his recipients were experiencing now and contrasts it with the future glory that awaited them when Jesus comes again. Persecution had begun under the bloody hand of Emperor Nero, who had set fire to Rome and pinned the blame on Christians as a pretext for eliminating them. The first readers of Peter’s letter had relocated to Asia Minor (today’s Turkey) and continued to face the fiery storms of opposition and even death for the sake of the gospel. Peter’s primary concern is that the know who they are and how they are to conduct themselves as such.
Jesus said: “A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you.” He also said: “In this world you will have tribulation; but, be of good cheer! I have overcome the world!”
In his letter the Apostle Peter shows us what the life of Jesus means for us today as we take up the cross and follow him in faith and obedience – come what may.
