Questions about the Book of First Peter

The book of First Peter is the twenty-first book of the New Testament. This epistle of First Peter is the fulfillment of the commission given to Peter by Christ. Peter was a minister of the circumcision; so he writes to the dispersed Jews, and he is the apostle of hope; like Paul, Peter sets forth the doctrines of Grace. This Epistle can be divided into three parts: 1) The Christian suffering and conduct in the light of complete Salvation. 2) The Christian life in view of the believer’s position and the vicarious suffering of Christ. 3) The Christian service in light of the coming of Christ. The author of this book is Peter. Listed below are questions on the book of First Peter. These questions can be used freely for Sunday school or bible study to help all young Christians study the scriptures. My prayers are with you always and may God bless you in your studies.
