This New Testament commentary series reflects this objective of explaining and applying Scripture. Some commentaries are primarily linguistic, others are mostly theological, and some are mainly homiletical. This one is basically explanatory, or expository. It is not linguistically technical but deals with linguistics when that seems helpful to proper interpretation. It is not theologically expansive but focuses on the major doctrines in each text and how they relate to the whole of Scripture. It is not primarily homiletical, although each unit of thought is generally treated as one chapter, with a clear outline and logical flow of thought. Most truths are illustrated and applied with other Scripture.
The book of 1 Peter was written to believers scattered throughout Asia Minor. It addresses the sufferings that come to faithful Christians. As such, it speaks to believers today who are facing trials. For years now, John MacArthur has been helping Christians in their study of the New Testament, with verse by verse commentary on the theological ramifications of the passages.
