09 2 Peter 2:10-12 Who are the glorious ones and why are they reviled?

12/12/2018
More
In the third major interpretative challenge of 2 Peter 2, we tackle the questions of who are the glorious ones, why would they be reviled and what does Peter want us to learn from this example? #witw #Biblestudy #2peter Lecture notes: https://www.wednesdayintheword.com/2peter9/ Teacher: Krisan Marotta Series: 2 Peter: How to find Life For more information: WednesdayintheWord.com

08 2 Peter 2:5-10 The Certainty of Judgment

12/5/2018
More
The coming judgment of God is not a popular topic today. We prefer to emphasize God's love instead. Yet Peter thought judgment was important enough to include in his final letter, so that would remember it long after he is gone. #witw #Biblestudy #2peter Lecture Notes: https://www.wednesdayintheword.com/2peter8 Teacher: Krisan Marotta Series: 2 Peter: How to find Life For more information: WednesdayintheWord.com

07 2 Peter 2:4 Does Peter quote Enoch?

11/28/2018
More
Peter and Jude appear to be quoting the book of 1 Enoch, which is part of the psuedepigrapha. Why would they quote it? What does it mean when an apostle quotes from a non-biblical source? I think both Peter and Jude quote 1 Enoch, the way a teacher today might quote Harry Potter — to make a point based on popular culture.

3 Tips for Bible Study in a "post-truth" world

11/21/2018
More
The Oxford Dictionary defines "post-truth" as "relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief." Do we live in a post-Bible study world? Increasingly sermons are heavy with stories and emotional appeals and light on critical explanations of the author's intent. But good Bible study methods haven't changed. Lecture Notes: https://www.wednesdayintheword.com/bs101-post-truth/ Teacher:...

06 2 Peter 2:1-3 Why 2 Peter 2 and Jude are similar

11/14/2018
More
2 Peter 2 begins a new topic: the coming judgment. While the main point of the chapter is fairly clear, the way Peter makes his point presents some interpretative challenges: 1) 2 Peter 2 focuses on judgment -- an unpopular topic for today's American church. 2) 2 Peter 2 and the Epistle of Jude presents the same ideas in the same order and often use the same words. Did Peter copy from Jude? Did Jude copy from Peter? Or did they both copy from someone else? 3) Both Peter and Jude appear to...

05 2 Peter 1:12-21 The Prophetic Word

11/7/2018
More
In 2 Peter 1:12-21, Peter asserts the gospel is not a clever philosophy but divine revelation from God. Which presents us with a choice about how we understand the Bible.

04 2 Peter 1:7-11 Brotherly affection & love

10/31/2018
More
In 2 Peter 1:5-11, Peter explains the connection between believing the gospel and pursuing a lifestyle of godliness. When we come to believe the gospel, these qualities follow. In last week's podcast, we defined the first 5 terms on the list. In this podcast we'll finish the list and cover Peter's conclusion that our lives as believers will be marked by these growing qualities.

03 2 Peter 1:5-6 Virtue to Godliness

10/24/2018
More
In 2 Peter 1:5-11, Peter is explaining the connection between believing the gospel and pursuing a lifestyle of godliness. I argued in the previous podcast that these qualities are NOT the cause of spiritual maturity, rather they RESULT from spiritual maturity. When we come to believe the gospel, these qualities follow. In this podcast we'll define each term in the list and discuss why Peter includes it and how it results from faith. Lecture notes: https://www.wednesdayintheword.com/2peter3/...

To understand 2 Peter 1:5-11, we need to know that: 1) Peter is speaking to churches who are bewitched by false teachers who are encouraging them to pursue greed and sensuality; 2) Believing the gospel includes a change in lifestyle.

Peter wrote this letter to churches infected by false teachers to encourage them to remain true to the apostolic gospel.

10 1 Peter 5:1-14 In Conclusion

10/3/2018
More
Peter concludes his letter by returning to his main theme: Stand firm in the gospel. Peter wrote his first letter give his readers perspective. Our “big picture” –what we believe is true — changes how we think, what we say, and what we do. Peter’s primary concern is to ensure we have the right big picture. He summarizes this theme addressing the leaders of the community. #witw #Biblestudy #1peter Lecture notes: https://www.wednesdayintheword.com/1peter10/ Teacher: Krisan Marotta Series: 1...

9/19/2018
More
1 Peter 3:18-4:6 includes one of the more difficult passages in the New Testament. However we understand this section, the context suggests that the main point should be related to patiently enduring suffering for the sake of another.

Peter wraps up the second major section of his letter reminding his readers that the more we embrace the truth of who Jesus is and what he did for us, the less we have to fear. The more we know where life, hope and blessing are to be found, the freer we are to let go of this world. #witw #Biblestudy #1peter Lecture notes: https://www.wednesdayintheword.com/1peter7/ Teacher: Krisan Marotta Series: 1 Peter: Living as Aliens & Strangers For more information: WednesdayintheWord.com

In his third example, Peter addresses wives of unbelieving husbands. In each of 3 examples, Peter addresses people who are stuck in a binding social relationship which they cannot easily escape. His advice to all 3 situations is the same: As aliens and strangers you are called to live in a hostile unbelieving world. When possible show the unbelievers that you are a person of virtue by behaving in a submissive and respectful way. Love your oppressor so that your faith is not interpreted as...

Have you seen a map of the universe taken from space with a tiny insignificant pinpoint of light labeled "you are here"?

In the field of psychology, "locus of control" refers to the extent to which a person believes they can control the world around them. People with a strong internal locus of control tend to attribute the outcome of events to factors under their own control. People with a strong external locus of control attribute outcomes of events to external circumstances. But both have a perspective which influences and predicts their actions. The book of 1 Peter is about that big perspective. In a sense,...
