The General Epistles

Message of the General Epistles

from Google Images

Awhile back I wrote a series of studies concerning what some call “The General Epistles” — the seven epistles of James, Peter, John and Jude. They were written to Jewish Christians, whether or not their respective local assemblies were populated predominantly by gentile believers. They were never meant to be  deep studies of the epistles in question. Rather, they concerned dating the epistles by addressing a running theme of persecution throughout their content. This theme and not a thorough study is what I was predominantly concerned with. So, while they are not and were never intended to be a verse-by-verse study, they do address something in those epistles that is, in fact,  there and testify to their early writing. So in this context, I have listed those blogs below, but for a more thorough study of Peter’s Epistles see HERE.

The First Epistle of Peter:

The Second Epistle of Peter

    I hope you might check out my work on the epistles and the parable blueprint…
    I can send you an example if you would like, or check out my website. The writers of the letters share a common literary form, which is also used in the Gospels. It’s pretty amazing and once it is studied and understood, it will clear up misunderstandings that surround the Bible.

      I checked out your website, but, without buying one of your books, I couldn’t know how to comment on the ‘parable blueprint’. I find the idea that all are connected in the manner you suggest intriguing, but without something to show me this, I am blind to pick it out by myself. I’ll consider buying one of your books to see what you have to say.
