Obedience and Submission in 1 Peter | Part 4: Why does 1 Peter instruct Christians to “submit”? (1 Peter 2:13–17)￼
Part 4 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 4: * Why does Peter say to submit? Does postcolonial interpretation have the answer? * Submit to “every human creature”… what? * An alternative: “human institution”? No. * Submit and do good, because God is creator of all * Submit and do good, because God is judge of all * Submit and do good, because God has redeemed us * The big ideas that set the scene for what follows (2:17)
Here are the key reflections on the topic of salvation in Ephesians in my series Lift Your Eyes: Reflections on Ephesians
When it comes to God, we can’t redeem ourselves. Redemption is something that God has to do—and has done—for us. This is why it’s such a wonderful thing.
