Hey Gang,

Boy, I was kind of shocked when I began to prepare this lesson and realized we were going to finish the book! In chapter five Peter takes it to the elders. I resemble his remarks!

Also, I will tell you what we will be doing next. I’m super excited about it and know you will be as well. But you have to watch to find out!

Pastor Dain Spore: Surprise! 1 Peter 4

In 1 Peter chapter 4, Peter says the world is surprised that we don’t follow them down their road. Shortly thereafter he says Christians should not be surprised when we suffer in this world. The word for “surprise” is interesting. In the Greek it is “Xenezontai” which has its root meaning as “to entertain strangers." What a long strange trip it’s been! And with plenty of “strangers” along the way. God has really been teaching me to “not be surprised” over the last couple of crazy “strange” years. We cover all of chapter 4. 

1 Peter Intro

Topics covered in this video include holiness, Peter's possible writing partner Silas, Peter's penchant to apply Old Testament references to the Christian experience, persecution and the overall construction of Peter's letter.
