  • I Peter 2:14-3:2
  • I Peter 2:16 – See Galatians 5:1-2. God set us free from sin through forgiveness of our sins so that we could be His servants.
  • I Peter 2:17
    • Love the brotherhood: This is the only place in the Bible where any sort of brotherhood action is commanded.
    • Fear God: This involves two types of fear:
      1. Reverence for God
      2. If we do not obey Him, we should be afraid of His punishment.
    • Honor the king: We are to honor the office of the ruler.
  • I Peter 2:24 – In what sense did Jesus bear our sins? See Leviticus 16:14-22. Just as the scapegoat bore the sins of the people, Jesus bore our sins on the cross. The difference is that Jesus needed only to bear our sins once for all time. The scapegoat ceremony had to be completed yearly. Compare Hebrews 10:1-10.

  • I Peter 2:1-14
  • I Peter 2:1 – “Therefore” – since they had purified their souls and been born again, Peter exhorts them to put aside malice, deceit, hypocrisy, etc. and desire the word of God.
  • I Peter 2:2 – No matter how long we have been serving God, we still need the milk of God’s word.
  • I Peter 2:3 – The word “if” here is used in the sense of “since.” Do these things in verse 2 since you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.
  • I Peter 2:9 – Christians are a chosen race in the sense that they are the people who decided to obey God. It’s not a particular physical race that are now God’s chosen race.
    • See also Colossians 1:13. We have been called out of darkness.
  • I Peter 2:10 – The quotes here are from Hosea 1:10.
  • I Peter 2:11 – We can win this war because God has promised not to tempt us beyond what we are able to bear. (I Corinthians 10:13)
  • I Peter 2:12 – We should live so as to influence others for good. Even if they have heard the word and rejected it, seeing us living well may cause them to seek God.
    • “day of visitation”:
      • Psalms 8:4
      • Psalms 106:4
      • Luke 1:68, 78
      • Luke 7:16
      • Luke 9:44
    • I Peter 2:13-14 – Compare Romans 13:4.

  • I Peter 1:10-25
  • I Peter 1:18-19 – We are redeemed by the precious blood of Christ. Without the shedding of that blood, there is no remission of sins (Hebrews 12:22). God planned for this before the foundation of the world.
  • I Peter 1:24-25 – Peter is quoting Isaiah here to illustrate the difference between the temporal and the eternal. The emphasis is on the word of God, which endures forever. When you have access to the word of God, don’t let yourself be drawn away by things that are merely temporal.

  • I Peter 1:1-2 – One is chosen by God by the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit. God foresaw that we would need a means of sanctification and salvation and provided it through Jesus.
    • “sprinkled with His blood” is for purification – a reference to the way men were purified under the Old Law.
