Chapter Summary

The theme of this chapter: "Christianity according to I Peter", may sound familiar to many of the reader. Many expressions which Dr. Cross connects with baptism have a more general meaning; and when he speaks of the slaves, women, and men, as the three classes of people present at that particular baptism he overlooks the formal structure of the whole submission passage, in which these classes are mentioned, the scheme being not particularly baptismal. This Christianity according to I Peter stands in the tension between the world and the Kingdom of God, in the freedom and light Christ has brought, suffering and rejoicing, doing well towards brethren and the outside world as a reflection of the excellencies of their God. It is a Christian faith, in trials steadfast and in trouble full of living hope, because it rests in the work of the eternal God: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
