Daniel and Erick wrap up the 1 Peter in this episode. There is some discussion about ecclesiology and why Peter calls himself an elder. Peter tells pastors to be humble and not domineering. Suffering will end even if it feels like it won’t. And humility has a lot do with denying your own strength. Have a listen!
What does Peter mean when he says those who suffer have ceased from sin? Do we ever become sinless? What does it mean that gospel has been proclaimed to the dead? Love is in the offensive business of covering sin and persecution is bound to come. Daniel and Erick discuss all of this. Have a listen!
Peter gives a backward and death-to-self recipe for loving life. We are encouraged to have a good apologetic for what we believe but not to engage in an arrogant or combative way. Did Jesus really descend into hell? And did Peter just say Baptism saves us? Daniel and Erick discuss all of this. Have a listen!
Peter tells wives to submit to their husbands. What is the context of this statement? Can it be taken too far? What do you do when your spouse isn’t a Christian? What is going on when Peter talks about jewelry and braided hair? What does Peter mean when he refers to women as the weaker vessel? Daniel and Erick discuss all of this. Have a listen!
Peter gives some examples of how to keep our conduct “honorable” before other people. These things are not easy and involve submitting to earthly authorities and suffering unjustly. How do the sufferings of Christ help us in this? And what is the danger of Christianity being too political? Daniel and Erick discuss all of this. Have a listen!
