Course Description

Examine the trials faced by early Christians in Asia Minor and the pastoral response and strategies addressed to those situations in 1 Peter. Grow in your mastery of this message and acquaintance with a range of exegetical skills, particularly those informed by intertexture, classical rhetoric, and awareness of first-century cultural values, bringing the fruits of this close reading of the text to bear on the challenges facing disciples and communities of faith in the global church today.
