This past week we began a study through the amazing book of 1 Peter. As a church we desire to be a place where we can gather to encounter the person of Jesus through the transforming study of His Word, and to that end we will be studying verse-by-verse through 1 Peter in order to glean as much from this short epistle as possible.
To assist our discipleship as we engage these sermons we want to share some additional helpful resources. Our ultimate authority should always be the written Word of God, the Bible, but secondary literature can help to expand our knowledge and understanding of what was written. This will fuel our love Jesus when we devote time to comprehend His Word better. Below is a compiled list of secondary literature about the book of 1 Peter that speaks to this fascinating book.
- This sermon on 1 Peter by John Stonestreet, President of the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, encourages us to have hope that Jesus is Lord as we engage this cultural moment. It is an excellent depiction of why 1 Peter is so applicable to our culture.
- This book by Elliot Clark, Evangelism as Exiles: Life on Mission as Strangers in Our Own Land, was recently made available by The Gospel Coalition for free. It is a great tie-in between our priorities of being a Scripture Saturated and Missionally Discipling church! You can also purchase a hard copy here.
- As an overview of the book of 1 Peter, The Bible Project has a great video you can watch here.
- For commentaries on 1 Peter, the most helpful academic commentary is the Baker Exegetical Commentary on 1 Peter, by Karen Jobes. Some more accessible commentaries that are also helpful include The Message of 1 Peter, by Edmund Clowney, and 1 Peter For You, by Juan Sanchez.
Please join us in praying that Jesus will use our time in 1 Peter to work in us and through us for the advancement of the Gospel!Categories:: Bible Study
