Lesson 80: Reflections on Regeneration
Peter wrote to the Jewish Christians scattered throughout Asia Minor who were suffering and being persecuted. Peter knew the persecution was going to get worse. As Peter addresses their suffering, he did not teach prosperity theology. Peter gave some wonderful insights into why God permits His people to suffer. Peter addresses election and being born again. According to Peter, there is such a thing as spiritual conception, a spiritual gestation period and the crisis of the new birth.
