Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the conceptual metaphorical dynamics of this belonging at the level of peoplehood. It finds out what conceptual metaphor analysis reveals about the ways in which Peter's moral discourse relies on a reframing of group identity and considers some potential inferences this reframing or schematization might evoke for readers of the letter. The chapter focuses on the way Peter uses certain experiences and understandings from the socio-political domain to shape his moral discourse. It builds on the household-morality connections established in earlier parts of the analysis, adding additional features to the picture. The chapter demonstrates that when households are approached in the manner, the conceptual connections between the household and some key moral concepts can be highlighted. It also demonstrates how that set of methods can be deployed. The chapter unpacks the role of the Body domain in Peter's moral discourse.
