Thinking | Being | Doing

The letters of 1 and 2 Peter were written by the disciple Peter – who was one of Jesus’ closest friends on earth. We can draw out a lot about Peter from the gospels and it is great to have so much of this ‘context’ that we don’t have for so many of the biblical authors. These letters were probably written from Rome, when Nero was Emperor, and at the time when there was a great persecution of Christians. Many were driven out of Rome and had scattered throughout the region. The letters were written to encourage these suffering Christians, encouraging them to wholesome thinking – about themselves, their situation and the future (2 Peter 3:1).

In many of the passages that we will look at there is negative that the people are experiencing (e.g. suffering) and yet Peter wants to remind them of a positive. This may be some truth that it is easy to forget in the suffering (e.g. the hope that we have) – and/or it may be something that God is doing through the suffering (e.g. we are being ‘refined’ through the suffering).

Although some of the passages are quite short, this term we are going to be once again thinking of themes rather than looking at preaching through a whole series of verses. The following notes will give you an initial indication of where the preacher may be headed – but please do get in touch with them nearer the time to find out the specific focus they are taking.
