Obedience and Submission in 1 Peter | Part 6: What does it mean for wives to “submit” and “obey”? (1 Peter 3:1–7)￼
Part 6 of a series of videos explaining the results of my research as detailed in an academic article: Lionel J. Windsor, “Obedience and Submission in 1 Peter,” The Global Anglican 136/2 (2022): 126–144. The original article is available at churchsociety.org Main headings for Part 6: * What we’ve seen so far in 1 Peter * What does “likewise” mean? * The situation in focus: Husbands who haven’t been persuaded by the gospel * What does submission look like in this situation? * Isn’t this just first-century conventional wisdom? No * The example of Sarah: What’s going on? * Fearing God and not being intimidated by husbands (abuse is never OK) * What it means for husbands
