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.

    Thankful for this word, encourage to stay in the word and in humbleness, knowing no matter what, God is still in charge.

    Did no one notice v. 13? "The church that is at Babylon .........saluteth you;........." Peter wrote this; he was the pastor of the Mesopotamian church at Babylon. He wouldn't have sent this salutation had he not been it's pastor. Nor does this name apply to Rome, simply because the Apostles followed after Jesus and would have used 'disparaging' remarks. This was the actual Babylon.
  • Iene123
    v. 1 - ".....and a witness of the sufferings of Christ ....."; this reminds me of Lk. 22:61 - and the Lord turned and looked upon Peter. Oh, the sorrow, guilt, and silent recrimination Peter must have felt!! That one phrase brings tears to my eyes. Because, the Lord didn't condemn him, not even silently. His look was of pure love, because He knew beforehand Peter would do this, and He knew why.

    This was edifying to my soul because I have been there and the devil was trying to keep me under his spell but I prayed and now I am free from that enemy. I don't give Satan the chance to re-enter into my spirit.
