Jesus Christ in 1 Peter 2

Read 1 Peter 2 HERE.

  • builds up his people as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Christ, 2:4-5.
  • is a living stone rejected by men but chosen and precious in the sight of God, 2:4.
  • will not allow those who trust him to be put to shame, 2:6.
  • is a stumbling stone and an offense to those who do not believe, 2:7.
  • has a people for his own name, 2:9.
  • has called us out of darkness into his marvelous light, 2:9.
  • suffered for everyone who believes, 2:21.
  • left his people an example of suffering in order that they might follow in his steps, 2:21.
  • was reviled, but did not revile in return, 2:23.
  • suffered, but did not threaten those who afflicted him, 2:23.
  • continually entrusted himself to the One who judges justly, 2:23.
  • bore our sins in his own body on the tree, 2:24.
  • healed those who believe by being wounded himself, 2:24.
  • is the Shepherd and Overseer of the believer's soul, 2:25.
