Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Peter 5:13


5:13 The church that is at Babylon - Near which St. Peter probably was, when he wrote this epistle. Elected together with you - Partaking of the same faith with you. Mark - It seems the evangelist. My son - Probably converted by St. Peter. And he had occasionally served him, as a son in the gospel.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Peter 5:13


1Pe 5:13 The [church that is] at Babylon. "She that is in Babylon" (Revised Version). The word "church" is not in the Greek. Peter probably referred to his wife. The salutations are from individuals. On Babylon, see topic 9257. Alford says, ``There is no reason whatever for regarding this any place but the Chaldean capital.'' [So doth] Marcus, my son. Most likely John Mark, the author of the second gospel. See Ac 12:12 13:5 15:37 Col 4:10.

    Readig this chapter, This I have read many of time, but whe you are dealing with relationship whether man and women, it also refers to the releasing of evildoers, Nowing ,Jesus suffered more enemies than I do, still I have to seek the comfort that God, instilled in Jesus. Let God take care of those thats against us. Stop holding on to bitterness, release it so God can work on you to exhauste these

    We are living in a world where all things seems to be difficult; and surviving the trials of this present times also seems to be overwhelmingly difficult.Vs 10 of this passage is encouraging us who are called by God to be faithful and trustful still believing that after going through this earthly tribulations for a while,God will perfect our faith in him, establish,strengthen and finally settle us

    Faith is key to overcoming the devil. We cannot afford to allow our faith to fail. One way to sustain our faith and have victory is to recall testimonies of what God did for us and others. David use it to overcome Goliath. Our testimony of the ability of our God is a weapon that cannot fail. Shalom!
  • Lilian
