THE LETTERS OF PETER INTRODUCTION TO THE FIRST LETTER OF PETER THE CATHOLIC OR GENERAL EPISTLES i It is suggested that these letters were so called because they were addressed to the Church at large in contradistinction to the Pauline letters which were addressed to individual churches ii So we must turn to the second explanation--that these letters were called Catholic or General because they were accepted as Scripture by the whole Church in contradistinction to that large number of letters which enjoyed a local and temporary authority but never universally ranked as Scripture THE GREAT INHERITANCE 1Pet11-2 Peter an apostle of Jesus Christ to Gods Chosen People who are scattered as exiles throughout Pontus Galatia Cappadocia Asia and Bithynia I am an apostle and you are chosen according to the fore-knowledge of God through the consecration of the Spirit for obedience and to be sprinkled by the blood of Jesus Christ May grace and peace be multiplied to you THE REBIRTH OF THE CHRISTIAN 1Pet13-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who according to his great mercy has brought about in us that rebirth which leads to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead an inheritance imperishable undefilable and unfading kept safe in heaven for us who are protected by the power of God through faith until there comes that deliverance which is ready to be revealed at the last time THE SECRET OF ENDURANCE 1Pet16-7 Herein you rejoice even if it is at present necessary that for a brief time you should be grieved by all kinds of trials for the object of these trials is that your tried and tested faith more precious than gold which perishes though it is tested by the fire may win praise and glory and honour when Jesus Christ shall appear UNSEEN
