People's Bible Notes for 1 Peter 2:6


1Pe 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture. See Isa 28:16 Ro 9:33. Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone. Hence God had foretold that Christ should be a Living Stone (1Pe 2:4). Peter has not quoted the passage in full which declares that the stone is "a tried stone", "a sure foundation". Elect. Hence, "chosen by God" (1Pe 2:4). Precious. Since it is "the chief corner stone" without which the structure could not be built. And he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Hence this stone is a person, and faith in him is the basis of salvation.

    Don't forget Mark 2:10-11. 10 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)
    11 I say unto thee,Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house. KJV

    Jacoba - You are both right in your teaching. There are many reasons why God does a lot of things and He does it all for His own glory whether out of compassion or to show His power or for our good etc. Let's add John 9:1-3 to the discussion. This is e-home cell we have online I enjoy the contributions. Let's continue to glean through scriptures to build ourselves up in all humility.

    Indeed, thank you Lord!

    Luk2677. Jesus is compassionate, you can be compassionate, I can be compassionate; so can anybody and certainly Jesus taught that we should be; but His miracles were to prove He was from God. The apostles preformed miracles to prove their words came from God. I love to talk about the Bible and enjoy discussions about the Bible. That is what apostle Paul told us to do, reason together.
  • Lu2677
    Jacoba,another post you said "Jesus healed to prove he is the Son of God".Matthew 14;14(He healed to show his compassion)Matthew 8;8(the man called him"Lord" before God healed his servant)Mark 1;34(He healed many but would not let the devils speak after he cast them out because they knew who he was, he did not want the people to know},etc. His miracles were not to prove who he is.
  • Jacoba
    This chapter is a very good thing to read completely when you have a bad attitude or are just plain mad.
