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.

    To Sean - You may have gotten help on your problem by now with associating with 'unbelievers' ..... ? I send you these in case you've never seen them 1 Cor. 6:12-15.
  • Irene123
    To Michael, 5 days ago - I think maybe Peter was a bigger failure than you - before the day of Pentecost in Acts ch. 2 when he gave the1st message of Jesus' new church - failure when he DENIED Jesus 3 times; you haven't denied Him. Just go to Acts ch. 2 - read vs.37-38.
  • Zagga Fenton
    My commend is on verse '8', there's a hurt and angry feeling I have on thinking these individuals, fashion themselves in the opposition of God, delight themselves in displeasing God. Their glory is to rob you and I from receiving God's favors. They gave up their fear of God, and now trying to rob us of our fear of God. They choses to be a parasites rather than being a servants and sons of God.
