“Jobes’ work is marked by deft engagement with the Greek text, dexterous handling of the secondary literature, and clarity of argument, with alternative viewpoints regularly given their due.” Joel B. Green
In this addition to the acclaimed BECNT series, Karen H. Jobes provides a fresh, insightful commentary on 1 Peter that will help students and pastors understand and apply this important letter to the world in which we live.
Throughout the commentary, Jobes emphasizes the Christian’s relationship to culture and the place of suffering in the Christian life. She also presents a new suggestion about the original recipients of the letter, highlights the insights provided by the use of the Septuagint in the letter, and challenges prevailing assumptions about the nature of the Greek in the letter.
