This New Testament commentary series reflects this objective of explaining and applying Scripture. Some commentaries are primarily linguistic, others are mostly theological, and some are mainly homiletical. This one is basically explanatory, or expository. It is not linguistically technical but deals with linguistics when that seems helpful to proper interpretation. It is not theologically expansive but focuses on the major doctrines in each text and how they relate to the whole of Scripture. It is not primarily homiletical, although each unit of thought is generally treated as one chapter, with a clear outline and logical flow of thought. Most truths are illustrated and applied with other Scripture.

The book of 1 Peter was written to believers scattered throughout Asia Minor. It addresses the sufferings that come to faithful Christians. As such, it speaks to believers today who are facing trials. For years now, John MacArthur has been helping Christians in their study of the New Testament, with verse by verse commentary on the theological ramifications of the passages.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.

Top Highlights

“He states this truth of sovereign election for what it is, a reality recognized and believed among the apostles and in the church.” (Page 13)

“Peter’s expressed purpose in writing his epistle was that his readers would stand firm in the true grace of God (5:12) in the face of escalating persecution and suffering.” (Page 10)

“Mercy is not the same as grace. Mercy concerns an individual’s miserable condition, whereas grace concerns his guilt, which caused that condition. Divine mercy takes the sinner from misery to glory (a change of condition), and divine grace takes him from guilt to acquittal (a change of position; see Rom. 3:24; Eph. 1:7).” (Pages 31–32)

“When believers sanctify Christ as Lord in their hearts, they affirm their submission to His control, instruction, and guidance.” (Page 200)

“The apostle wanted those believers to remember that, in the midst of potentially great suffering and hardship, they were still the chosen of God, and that as such they could face persecution in triumphant hope (cf. 4:13, 16, 19; Rom. 8:35–39; 2 Tim. 3:11; Heb. 10:34–36).” (Page 16)
