AUTHOR: Peter
DATE: 63-64 AD

This letter, written by Peter, is addressed to “the strangers [pilgrim] scattered [dispersed] throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia” (1:1). Their situation was one of suffering and trial (1 Pet 4:12) as they tried to live faithfully in a pagan and hostile society. Peter wrote to encourage them to rejoice and live with hope in the Lord to overcome their troubles.

Peter tells that he wrote from “Babylon” (1 Peter 5:13), a symbolic name for Rome that was often used by writers who wished to avoid trouble with the Roman authorities. Peter was in Rome during the last decade of his life and wrote this epistle prior to Nero’s persecution in 64 AD. Peter was martyred about 67 AD.

The message of Peter’s letter was revealed by him to be  “the true grace of God” in the life of a believer (1 Peter 5:12).
