Ian Paul joins the conversation to discuss suffering, hope, glory, and discipleship in 1 Peter 4:12-14, 5:6-11. We ask what it means to share in Christ’s suffering (specifically) and how we sustain hope in the midst of suffering. We also touch on the ascension in Acts 1:6-14.
Ian Paul blogs about the Bible, theology, and preaching at Psephiz0. You can find a full list of his publications here. We mention this commentary by Ben Witherington and this NYT article by David Brooks.
