Taking the Epistle

A biblical journey through the epistles

16 – Peter (1st)


1st Peter

Thank you for clicking on our page for the Petrine epistle which is called 1st Peter, the letter is authored by the apostle Peter as a general epistle to those who are elect exiles of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia. The book of 1st Peter is a letter of encouragement and a call to holy living and being steadfast in faith. This is just one page based on one individual epistle (or letter) and for other bible studies on other epistles please see our main epistle page.

The letter is broken down as follows:

Greeting (1:1–2)
Praise to God (1:3–12)
God’s Holy People (1:13–2:10)
Life in Exile (2:11–4:11)
Steadfast in Faith (4:12–5:11)
Final Greeting (5:12–14)

When the writers of the bible separated the books into chapters and verses to help indexing and finding verses, this book was split into 5 chapters, in many cases new chapters do not contain new thoughts and you will see bible studies cross over chapter lines.
