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.

    Being strong willed, God has been longsuffering - still have a long ways to go! Thank God that God's righteousness for us is a gift through the abundance of Grace! Romans 5:17 KJV For if by one man's offence death reigned by one much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. God is working with us to Sanctify us and He will finish that work until the day of Jesus Christ! Philippians 1:6 KJV Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: What really helps is to take Romans 12:1-2 seriously everyday and to take on the challenge of letting the Holy Spirit, tempered with Scripture and Prayer, guide you every moment of every day. One may never reach that standard, but God knows your willingness and your heart and that is what Matters to Him most!
