  • I Peter 3:1-20
  • I Peter 3:1-2 – “In the same way” here points back to I Peter 2:21-25, referring to how Jesus died so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. Wives should likewise die to sin and live to righteousness, not only for their own benefit, but also to be a good influence on their husbands.
  • I Peter 3:6 – Women can be metaphorical children of Sarah if they follow her example in living righteously.
  • I Peter 3:7 – Paul is not saying that women are weaker – just that husbands should treat them with love and care as though they are weaker.
  • I Peter 3:10-12 – Compare I Peter 2:24.
  • I Peter 3:18-20 – Christ taught people who were in a prison of sin, just like Noah did in his time.
