Wesley's Notes for 1 Peter 1:24


1:24 All flesh - Every human creature is transient and withering as grass. And all the glory of it - His wisdom, strength, wealth, righteousness. As the flower - The most short - lived part of it. The grass - That is, man. The flower - That is, his glory. Is fallen off - As it were, while we are speaking. #Isaiah 40:6|, &c.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Peter 1:24


1Pe 1:24 All flesh [is] as grass. See Isa 40:6. God's word lives forever, but the flesh is as evanescent as the grass. And all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The fleshly life, like the grass, is soon felled by death, but a birth from the living and eternal word is a birth to eternal life.

The words and deeds shall be for ever and all that for now opposes shall be conquered and removed.
  • Son of David
    Peter teaches that Faith isn't something to have but something thst is evolved thru purification of fiery temptation, but the knowledge of the truth that Jesus,the Christ (because Christ wasn't a name butan office)came in the flesh and taught an advanced class in Religion,revealing the existence of God, and certified his thesis by returning in Transfiguration as a testament, so sealing our fate
