  • October 1, 2022 | 1 Peter 1:1

Imagine going to your mailbox. Among the bills and advertisements, you find a special letter written by Peter, a friend and follower of Jesus. Peter was one of the first witnesses to the Resurrection and preached a powerful sermon on the day of Pentecost. He also wrote two epistles (letters) to believers scattered throughout western Asia.

From the Editor

We sometimes say we are hopeful when we are feeling positive about a situation. For example, we may hope that a test result comes back with an all clear. Or we hope our team wins the game.

But biblical hope means so much more...

As author Dr. Brad Baurain explains, “Our hope is not a vague notion, but embodied in Jesus Christ, who is our Living Hope!” Join us as we study the books of 1 and 2 Peter and learn about the hope we have today as followers of Jesus Christ, and the certain hope which guarantees our future (1 Peter 1:3-4).

For a sneak peek at this month’s study, don’t forget to watch our author videoThe Today in the Word YouTube channel features monthly videos with each of our authors. For October, Dr. Baurain and managing editor Jamie Janosz give us important background about the author and setting. Prepare your heart to be encouraged and motivated to live out your salvation and pursue holiness.

As always, thank you for joining us as we learn from God’s Word.
