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.

    Humble ourselves before the mighty hand of God, Oh how we should be brought so low, knowing the Eternal Son of God humbled Himself in obedience to the Fathers will in taking our nature, willingly He made Himself of no reputation and was obedient even to the death of the cross. For the Joy that was set before Him He endured. Now in Glory, our Mediator, interceding for us feeble souls that we May we cast our cares on Him, the One whom loved us from Eternity past and knows every hair upon our head, our thought, intention and heart. Fear not, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee. Every Blessing.

    As a born again believer in our Lord I see this picture as child abuse. I can expect this in the carnal world but on this site that prints out Gods word this is so offensive. Would you offer this picture of this helpless infant in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ?
  • Sarah
    Wow, what a powerful word. God is speaking to me. Praise God.
