The Bible book of first Peter was written by Peter, in Babylon and was completed in c.62-64 C.E. As the early Christians declared abroad the excellencies of God, the Kingdom work prospered and increased throughout the Roman Empire. However, some misunderstandings arose concerning this zealous group.
For one thing, their religion had originated from from Jerusalem and from among the Jews, and some confused them with the politically minded Jewish zealots who chafed under the Roman yoke and were a constant source of trouble to local governors.
Moreover, the Christians were different in that they refused to sacrifice to emperor or mix in with the pagan religious ceremonies of the day. They were spoken against and have to endure many trails on account of their faith.,And so Peter write his first letter to the Christians encouraging them to stand firm and counseling them on how to conduct themselves Under Nero, the Caesar of that time.
This letter proves to be timely in view of the storm of persecution that broke out almost immediately thereafter.The writer-ship of first Peter was written by himself, we can account for this from his opening statement of the letter. Moreover, Iranaeus, Clement of Alexandria, Origen and Tertullian all quote the letter, naming Peter as writer.
The Second bible book of Peter
Second book of PETER was written by Peter, in Babylon (NOTE) there is no direct evidence, particularly as to the place. But was addressed to those who have attained faith. it was completed in c. 64 C.E. When Peter composed his second letter, he realized he was to face death soon.
He anxiously desired to remind his fellow Christian of the importance of accurate knowledge to help them to maintain steadfastness in their ministry. Would there be any reason to doubt that the apostle Peter was the writer of the second bearing his name? The letter it self erases any doubt that may arisen as to writer ship.
The writer says he is “Simon Peter, the slave and apostle of Jesus Christ.”In this letter him speaks of himself as the eyewitness to the transfiguration of Jesus of Jesus Christ, a privilege that Peter shared with James and John. and he writes of all this as an eyewitness.
