The First Epistle of Peter

Writing this book was something that I was passionate about. I had never really done a thorough and detailed study of one book in continuity before. The entire process took about 7 months, not including the editing and book design steps that come with publishing.

The Apostle Peter is my favorite disciple of all original twelve disciples, someone that I feel is overshadowed by the excellent work and ministry of the Apostle Paul, who was not one of the disciples. I dig into why Peter is my favorite disciple in the book.

I initially planned to only write the book, which actually came about as the result of a Facebook Live video series I felt led by the Lord to complete. But, as my book sat with my editor, I was suddenly inspired by the Lord to create a Workbook, which added a month to my original timeline. So, if you should so decide, there is a companion workbook for your use if you are the type of person who finds them useful. I also created an Answer Key for the Workbook, which can only be found on this page.

I relied on several sources for this book, and I did not always agree with what other commentators and book authors had to say about the scripture found within Peter’s first book. On the same token, there may be areas in my commentary book that you disagree with me. I find that our interpretation and understanding of scripture is based on several factors not in the least of which are our own wilderness journey’s and where we are in our spiritual maturity. However, and most importantly, our interpretations of scripture ought to be guided in our hearts by the Father Himself. What is the Holy Spirit telling you about “that verse or passage”?

On this page, you will find a few resources for you, starting with a short 40 second book trailer. Below the trailer you will find links to where you can purchase a copy of the book if you are felt lead to do so.

At the very bottom of this page you will find links to FREE downloadable versions of the book in PDF format. You will also find a free download of the Answer Key that corresponds to the Workbook of this series. You are welcome to these free downloads if that is your choice. No sign ups or information gathering required.

I pray that you enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed writing it, but more importantly, I pray that you glean something of insight and revelation of what God has to say to you, the man of the 21st Century who is living in two kingdoms (the physical earth and the Kingdom of God).

God bless… Marcus Johnson
