Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. - Psalm 119:105


The Epistles of Peter

With the help of Silas, whom I regard as a faithful brother, I have written to you briefly, encouraging you and testifying that this is the true grace of God. Stand fast in it. 1 Peter 5:12

Peter and Jude are writing to Christians who are oppressed, confused, and struggling, seeking to live for Christ in a world that not only does not understand but also persecutes those of the faith. In the midst of the oppressions from the world and family, come people who seek to deceive and entice them to live for sin and not for Christ. Peter and Jude encourage, challenge, and give them the hope to remain in Christ. At the same time, Peter and Jude do not hold back from telling them where they are in error and admonishing them to be aware and be on guard to live for Christ, putting on His virtues and not the worlds. Both of Peter's epistles and Jude are as relevant today as they were nearly two thousand years ago because what they went through, we go through, too! They needed hope and encouragement just as we do-whomever, whenever, and wherever we are!

Introduction to Peter

I & II Peter and Jude Background Material 
Along comes Peter-the Apostle of Hope! First Peter is a letter about the hope we have in Christ, regardless of what we experience or face. He gives us the ultimate weapon to fight discouragement-the ultimate hope that what we face and go through is temporary. Peter is telling us that Jesus offers His forgiveness and grace, then enables and empowers us. He indeed has a plan and a purpose for us!
