Chapter Summary

Behavior 'in Christ' happens in time. This chapter elucidates how Peter structures his exhortation around behavior in the nation, in the household, and in the body. But the placement of those pieces in the larger picture makes more sense if attention is first paid to an over-arching domain, one that permeates the rest. That domain is time; Peter roots Christian morality in time. Peter uses concepts of time and space and motion to structure and communicate his moral exhortation. The chapter considers some of the complexities of the time metaphors Peter uses, focusing on what they contribute to his moral discourse. It argues that, because Peter repeatedly connects time and events with moral action and its consequences, time constitutes a morally significant living space that is qualified in specific ways.
