The First Epistle of Peter: Revised Text, with Introduction and Commentary (Classic Reprint) Excerpt from The First Epistle of Peter: Revised Text, With Introduction and Commentary In the Commentary which forms the larger part of this book the author's aim has been, by a careful examination of the grammatical structure of the Epistle, to ascertain, as exactly as the data permit, what is taught in it, and how the different parts of the teaching are related to each other. His chief desire has been to trace the course of thought, and he trusts that, whilst words and constructions have been discussed with what seemed adequate fulness, yet it will be found that at no point has the principal purpose of the work been lost sight of in mere philological or grammatical disquisition. In studying this Epistle one has in but small measure that illustration of specialties of thought or expression which is supplied by other writings or recorded utterances of the same author, - such as is enjoyed so abundantly by a student occupied with a work of Paul or John. Some helpful hints of this kind, however, have been obtained, especially from the discourses of Peter preserved in Acts. But the chief aid to be found in Scripture for the elucidation of the apostle's language is derived from the Septuagint. His style is to so great an extent moulded by its influence, and his thoughts, even when he is not formally quoting, or in any definite way following Old Testament lines, so tend to clothe themselves in the phraseology of the Alexandrian version, that the help afforded by reference to it - important in the study of any Hellenistic writing - is pre-eminently valuable here. Outside of Scripture, illustration of the apostle's words and constructions has been sought for mainly in Philo and in the earliest post-apostolic Christian literature.
