About this product
- DescriptionThe significance of the First Letter of Peter for the formation of Christianity stands in sharp contrast to its brevity. John H. Elliott, a leading authority on this letter, brings its significance to life in this magnificent addition to the rewned Anchor Bible Commentaries. Elliott sets the letter into context, covering its literary, historical, theological, and linguistic elements. In detailed, accessible discussions, he draws on the latest research to illuminate the social and cultural influences on the Church in its initial years. Treating such important Petrine concerns as living horably in a hostile society, finding meaning in suffering, and resisting social assimilation as the elect and holy family of God, the translation, tes, and commentary in this volume will help readers appreciate the powerful and enduring message of this fascinating letter.
