How does a Christian behave when surrounded by a hostile world that doesn’t understand who we are or why we do what we do? In three letters, Peter and Jude provide some answers: Abandon the old pagan ways. Learn the new habit of love. Put on the mental armor that will make you strong to face suffering that may come.
Prompted by NT Wright’s admonition to “remind ourselves frequently, seriously and thoroughly who we really are” – loved and cherished by the Lord who delights in us and abundantly provides grace and peace through living hope, we hope you will enjoy this study. Because “living hope” is based on our eternal hope that, unlike earthly hope, is certain – absolute.
NT Wright formerly bishop of Durham in England, is research professor of New Testament and early Christianity at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. He also taught New Testament studies for twenty years at Cambridge, McGill and Oxford Universities.
