At the time Peter wrote this epistle, many Christians were facing persecution. Early Christians found themselves engaged in constant conflict with authoritarian structures and, as a result, many began to capitulate and collaborate with the enemy. The primary root cause: they did not know who they were as members of the body of the Anointed One. Nearly two thousand years have passed, and the body of the Anointed One in America find themselves in the same situation. There is a backlash against the Christian church in the United States. We have awakened and found that our hope is not in any political party or process. We suddenly find ourselves politically incorrect in an increasingly hostile environment.
We must first know who we are in the Anointed One. This book is a verse-by-verse study of this epistle with a view to show us who we are and how we live.
