BRIEF SUMMARY OF 1 PET 1:3-5 Peter (and his readers) ought to praise God (v. 3) because God has, in accordance with his mercy, given to his people (his elect exiles; v. 1) new birth into a living hope – a living hope made possible in and through Jesus’ own resurrection. The content of this living hope is the promised eternal inheritance (v. 4), which is not subject to perishing because God is guarding it and waiting until the time of final salvation when it will be given to his children (v. 5), children who also are themselves being guarded by God through the exercise of their own faith. NOTES ON VARIOUS PORTIONS OF THE ARC - Verse 3d could also logically be a ground (G) to 3c, such that the reason for our living hope is the reality of the resurrection. - If one sees the 'inheritance' as a somewhat further or separate goal of the new birth apart from 'living hope', 4a-5c could be in series (S) (or Action/Purpose) with 3c-3d instead of Id/Exp. With Id/Exp, I'm saying that the content of the living hope is actually the awaited future inheritance and salvation. - I wouldn't normally make 5b a separate proposition, but I want to point out the divine sovereignty / humans responsibility tension with 5a. - Verse 5c could just as easily be temporal (T) in its relation to 5a-5b as well as the intended goal/purpose. I've chose to use Action/Result to indicate what is clearly Peter's point: that God's power will make sure that His own will undoubtedly experience this salvation.
