Overview
In this newest addition to the acclaimed BECNT series, respected New Testament scholar Karen H. Jobes provides a fresh commentary on 1 Peter. 1 Peter admirably achieves the dual aims of the BECNT series--it is academically sophisticated as well as pastorally sensitive and accessible. This volume features Jobes's own translation of the Greek text and detailed interaction with the meaning of the text, emphasizing the need to read 1 Peter in light of its cultural background. Jobes's commentary will help pastors, students, and teachers better understand the Christian's role as a "foreigner" in contemporary society.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I wish I could put 6 stars!!!!  Jul 26, 2006
Karen Jobes (Ph.D. Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia) currently is Gerald F. Hawthorne professor of Greek and New Testament in Wheaton College. When she wrote this commentary, she was still in Westmont College in Santa Barbara as associate professor of New Testament. She has proven her ability as competent exegete and expositor by writing a commentary on Esther for NIVAC series.

I just wonder why there haven't any review for this great commentary. The new volume in the prestigious BECNT by Dr. Jobes is outstanding. Highly readable, clear in reasoning and presented in reader friendly format. She spends 57 pages for introduction and 266 pages for commentary.

I think Dr. Jobes's excursus of the syntax in 1 Peter (325-38) will be her original contribution to researches in the letter. There she proves the assumption for the impossibility to fisherman like Peter wrote such a well written letter untenable. Recent archaeological evidence has indicated that the Greek culture and language may have had more a presence in Galilee. So "corresponding to the debated prevalence of the Greek language in Galilee is the prevalence of the use of the LXX." Yes, Septuagint is her area of expertise. She had written an introduction to the Septuagint with the prominent exegete Moises Silva. Approaching 1 Peter from the LXX point of view, I believe, will take Jobes to the conversant voice among scholars who studied the letter socio-culturally or socio-rhetorically as John H. Eliott and Paul J. Achtemeier.

I do not mean that Jobes' knowledge of the social backgrounds is not as rich as the two scholars. Prove it by coming across her account on the Noah story in Asia Minor and the development of other alternative interpretations when she explores ch. 3.18-22 (245-51).

For busy pastors, who keep the vision of being scholar-pastor, the current volume is a mine of the most recent scholarship as well as rich spirituality. Most of all, Reformed pastor will get the volume quickly. I have one, how about you?
