Born Again to Hope-Filled Humility

A Summary of 1 Peter

In this video, John Piper concludes his study of the book of 1 Peter. After working through the last section of the letter, Piper offers a summary of the book of 1 Peter as a whole: founded on the work of Christ, God awakens his elect in the new birth, providing new affections — most notably, hope — that give rise to new behavior.

Look at the Book is John Piper’s latest effort to help teach people to read the Bible for themselves. It’s an ongoing series of 8–12 minute videos in which the camera is on the text, not the teacher.

As part of this initiative, Desiring God is putting on regional events focused on certain passages of Scripture. This is Part 12 in a series on 1 Peter called “Hoping, Singing, and Loving in the Refiner’s Fire.”
