- 1 Peter was written by the Apostle Peter, one of Jesus original 12 disciples. He is well-known from stories in the gospels.
- It was written to a large number of churches all throughout what is now Turkey.
- c. 66 A.D.
- The Christians in the provinces throughout Asia Minor (modern day Turkey) were experiencing all sorts of harassment, ridicule, social suffering, and hardships because of their faith in Jesus. Peter writes to them to help them know how to honor Jesus under such circumstances. How should they relate to their neighbors and business partners? How should the act in and around town? How should they treat the unbelievers who treat them so badly?
