Persecution That Leads To Glory – Leo Hebert, Room 206
A study of 1 Peter In Peter’s first letter to the “scattered” first century churches, he addressed several issues. But the main emphasis is for explanation and encouragement in the “fiery trials”. Peter views the suffering of Christians through the agonies of Jesus, and recognizes both divine purpose in, and ones proper response to, Christian suffering in the light of the atonement of Christ. A study of First Peter will teach learners a “persecution that leads to Glory”.
