•CHAPTER 3* The Context of 1 Peter In order to understand the message of 1
Peter, a proper understanding of its context is essential. This is especially true of
its literary context in which parenesis is employed to underline the significance of
the identity of the elect. Yet this task is inhibited or limited by two major problems.
Firstly, attempts at reconstructing sociological context of biblical texts is a
daunting task, as the texts never set out to give details of the social life of its
readers.

One writer put the matter bluntly: The glorification of suffering, like that found in 1
Peter, is seen to glorify all suffering and in fact holds up the victim as a model for
women. . . . Thus, the myth of Jesus as “Suffering Servant” should not be made
into a model for Christian life, particularly for Christian women. . . . Of all the
Christian Testament texts, the message of 1 Peter is the most harmful in the
context of women's lives. Its particular message of the suffering Christ as a model
for Christian ...

The message of 1 Peter concerns how Christians are to live in a hostile
environment, and live in such a way that they not only endure but also have a

Peter is designed to inculcate that our lives are not at the mercy of ruthless forces

human experience of suffering and distress—and triumphed.” 8. BIBLIOGRAPHY

While it is expected that the audience would follow the trail that leads to the
understanding that 1 Peter seeks to explicate, there is also the possibility that the
audience may not have fully appropriated the imagery. Nevertheless, as shown
in this reading, the passage's linkage to the temple imagery is pertinent to a
better understanding of the overall message of 1 Peter. 4.9. Conclusion In this
chapter we have endeavored to establish the significance of the temple imagery
in 1 Peter by ...
