Week 1: Getting the Big Picture

hope

Welcome to our 6-Week Study of 1 Peter!  This book is a deep well of hope and I think we will benefit greatly through studying it together.  This week we will be gathering some background info and context.  We need to get acquainted with our author, Peter and his audience. We will also try to figure out his purpose for writing.  Here’s a peek at the upcoming week:

Day 1:  What was Peter like before Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection?

Day 2:  How did Peter change after Jesus’ resurrection and the arrival of the Holy Spirit?

Day 3:  Read 1 Peter 1-3

Day 4:  Read 1 Peter 4-5

Day 5:  Summarize background info for 1 Peter

Scripture was made to be studied with other people!  Other believers can point out things we missed and provide unique insights.  They can also keep us accountable for applying what we are learning!  To encourage participation and interaction, I will post a discussion question most days of the week.  Please feel free to post a reply to the discussion question or to share your own question or comment related to our study of 1 Peter.  Anyone who comments at least 4 out of the 6 weeks will be entered to win a $15 Chick-Fil-A gift card!  So get crackin’ on 1 Peter and let us know how it’s going!
