There are several thorny passages in 1 Peter, such as: “Honor the emperor” (2:17), “Slaves, accept the authority of your masters . . .” (2:18), “Wives, in the same way, accept the authority of your husbands . . .” (3:1), and “He was put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit, in which also he went and made a proclamation to the spirits in prison . . .” (3:18b-19). This workshop took a closer look at these passages with the goal of understanding them better as we consider how we might preach and teach them today.
