The First Epistle General of Peter

1 Peter 

Chapter 1

The trial of our faith precedes salvation—Christ was foreordained to be the Redeemer.

Chapter 2

Converts are newborn babes in Christ—He is the chief cornerstone—Saints hold a royal priesthood and are a peculiar people—Saints are in subjection to the laws of man.

Chapter 3

Husbands and wives should honor each other—Saints should live by gospel standards—Christ preached to the spirits in prison.

Chapter 4

Peter explains why the gospel is preached to the dead—Saints should speak as the oracles of God—The righteous will be tried and tested in all things.

Chapter 5

The elders are to feed the flock of God—Humility and godly graces lead to perfection.
