1 Peter (Macarthur New Testament Commentary Series)

Also Available In
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.
^understandable, devout-all things and more can be honestly said about this generation's ^greatest single-author pastoral commentary set. The MacArthur New Testament Commentary ^series is a help to Christians and preachers. Forged in the study, fired in the ^pulpit, these comments on the whole New Testament are a gift from one who loves ^Christ, given to Christ's bride, the church."
-Mark Denver, pastor, Capitol Hill ^Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.

"Dr. MacArthur's love for the Scripture and ^his many years of diligent study have resulted in a resource that is a great gift ^to the Body of Christ. I have found this tool to be a great help as I study the ^Word and teach it to women. I often refer to this set of commentaries to enhance ^my understanding of the text and to shed light on difficult passages and questions."
-Nancy ^Leigh DeMoss, author, Revive our Hearts radio teacher

 "John MacArthur ^has provided a compelling example of pastoral ministry based on the Word of God. ^Now the fruit of that ministry is available to us all: careful attention to the ^text of Scripture and faithful theological exposition, all in the service of the ^church of Jesus Christ. Both pastor and layperson will benefit for years to come ^from this unique commentary series."
-C.J. Mahaney, president of Sovereign Grace ^Ministries

"The MacArthur New Testament Commentary is nothing less than a ^library of faithful exegesis and exposition. This project is unparalleled in our ^times, and John MacArthur has produced a masterful commentary series that demands ^attention and deserves a place in every preacher's library."
-R. Albert Mohler, ^Jr., PhD, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY

JOHN MACARTHUR is the pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in ^Sun Valley, California, president of The Master's College and Seminary, and featured ^teacher with the Grace to You media ministry. Grace to You radio, video, audio, ^print, and website resources reach millions worldwide each day. Over four decades ^of ministry, John has written dozens of bestselling books, including The MacArthur ^Study Bible, The Gospel According to Jesus, The New Testament Commentary ^series, The Truth War, and The Jesus You Can't Ignore. He and ^his wife, Patricia, have four married children and fifteen grandchildren.

Peter wrote this letter at the outbreak of Nero's persecution, urging ^his readers to have hope and courage in the midst of terrible affliction.  ^His words of encouragement still resonate today.  Even when believers face ^suffering and hostility, they can rest in their salvation, live out their testimony, ^and look forward to Jesus' return. 

Join John MacArthur as he ^explains each verse in a way that is both doctrinally precise and intensely practical.

As Peter penned this epistle, the dark clouds of the first great outbreak ^of official persecution, investigated by the insane Emperor Nero, were already gathering ^on the horizon. Seeking scapegoats to divert the public's suspicion that he had ^started the great fire of July, A.D. 64 that devastated Rome, Nero pinned the blame ^on the Christians, whom he already perceived as enemies of Rome because they would ^worship none but Christ. As a result, they were encased in wax and burned at the ^stake to light his gardens, crucified and thrown to wild beasts. Though the official ^persecution apparently was confined to the vicinity of Rome, attacks on Christians ^undoubtedly spread unchecked by the authorities to other parts of the Empire. It ^was as a result of Nero's persecution that both Peter and Paul were martyred. But ^before he died, Peter wrote this magnificent epistle to believers whose suffering ^would soon intensify. Throughout the centuries, beleaguered Christians have benefited ^from the apostle's wise counsel and gentle, encouraging words of comfort.
