John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring the Epistles of Peter

For the Olive Tree Bible App

Title: John Phillips Commentary Series - Exploring the Epistles of Peter
Publisher: Kregel
Author: John Phillips

Description

Peter's epistle seems to have been written between AD 65 and AD 67, between the outbreak of Christian persecution and the outbreak of the Jewish war. The world was changing, and Peter felt the peril and suffering of the times. With Christianity in crisis, Peter had some things to say.

Peter had known Christ as few people have known him. He lived with him, walked and talked with him, and shared his own home with him. One of the first four disciples, he had many marvelous memories. He knew that he would one day die a martyr's death, as the Lord had told him (John 21:17-19).

Peter's letter is full of references and allusions to his unforgettable years as a disciple and close companion of Christ. As Jesus could turn some commonplace, everyday object or occurrence into a vivid illustration of divine truth, so could Peter, and his letter includes a trail of picturesque similes: "As sheep going astray" (2:25); "as newborn babes" (2:2); "as obedient children" (1:14); "as lively stones" (2:5).

Haunting the book also is the spectre of Nero, a terrible figure in whom Satan was unmasked. Satan was no longer the angel of light, no longer even the old serpent; he was the roaring lion going about seeking whom he might devour.

The John Phillips Commentary Series is designed to provide pastors, Sunday school teachers, and students of the Scripture with doctrinally sound interpretation that emphasizes the practical application of Bible truth. Working from the familiar King James Version, Dr. Phillips not only provides helpful commentary on the text, but also includes detailed outlines and numerous illustrations and quotations. Anyone wanting to explore the meaning of God's Word in greater depth - for personal spiritual growth or as a resource for preaching and teaching - will welcome the guidance and insights of this respected series.
