1 Peter 5:12-14 Bible Study

1 Peter 5:12-14 "This Is Real History"

By Silvanus, a faithful brother as I regard him, I have written briefly to you, exhorting and declaring that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it. 13 She who is at Babylon, who is likewise chosen, sends you greetings, and so does Mark, my son. 14 Greet one another with the kiss of love.

Video Notes:

  • I wanted to include this as its own reading because so often we treat these closing passages as throw away lines.
  • Silvanus – A real person. This is actual history and an actual letter.
  • This is true.
  • This is grace. It is a gift.
  • I exhort you to stand firm in your faith.
  • She (church) in Babylon (Rome)
  • My son Mark (likely the evangelist)
  • Kiss of love (cultural tradition which isn’t typically practiced today)
  • Peace which only comes from Christ

In Christ’s Service,
