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
The gospel of Jesus Christ teaches husbands to take initiative to love and give themselves to their wives. This radical teaching involves both actions and attitudes.
