For a little while
Nine group Bible studies on the book of 1 Peter, including notes for leaders.
The theme of suffering and persecution strongly suggests that these Christians were under attack for their faith and lifestyle. Peter writes to encourage them through times of hardship by reminding them that suffering proves their faith, pointing to the example of Christ, and showing their future hope. His letter shows how Christ is the model for Christians: as the firstfruit of the resurrection; as the cornerstone of the house we’re being built into; as the exemplar of patient, undeserved suffering and submission; as the chief shepherd of the flock.
