Epistles of Saint Peter

Additional Links

Saint Peter the Apostle wrote two Epistles, both addressed to converts from paganism in Asia Minor. Both were sent from Rome. The second seems to hint at his approaching death. The first abounds with admonitions to lead a Christian life, outlining the duties of subjects to the emperor, of slaves towards masters, of wives and husbands, mutual charity, patience, and humility. The second seems more of an attack on abuses; some seemed to have lost faith because Christ did not come in glory as soon as they had hoped. Saint Peter explains the delay, warns against and describes the punishment inflicted on teachers of false doctrines, and bids his readers await Christ's coming in patience and good works.
