Hello Everyone, Thank you Trevor for the guidance on the notes and lookup modules of Markup. I attempted to follow your further instructions, and I appreciate them a great deal. This time, I was able to focus more on the substance of the text, than being preoccupied with the format of how to do this markup. I do enjoy it though it does take me quite a bit of time. Yet the pay off is so good that I think I might try to incorporate this into my devotions. And this is only three verses! Thanks again, j Elect Exiles (Orange rectangle and highlight) A grace was foretold/predicted to come to them (v.10) They were served by the prophets (v.12) The gospel was preached to them (v. 12) "Things" were conveyed to the exiles through the gospel, its proclamation and the Holy Spirit (v.12) Questions/Thoughts: How were the elect exiles meant to respond to this privileged position, of receiving a grace that had long been foretold, served by the long line of prophets and the gospels preached to them? How can I respond rightly to this privileged position? Do I, we believers today, know just what a wonder this is? If I truly knew the fullness of what I as elect exiles receive, I would be so immensely filled, satisfied, contented, able to serve God's kingdom. How do I have this sink into me? All I can think of is for God to as Dr Piper prays, Incline my heart, Open my eyes and ears, Unite my heart. I continue to look to Jesus for this, this is my prayer. Isn't amazing that we today know what the prophets and even angels longed to know? Amazing. What are the "things" of v. 12? I think it is everything from 1 Peter 1: 1-12. Summary The elect exiles were front and center in receiving a grace that was foretold by days long gone. They were ultimately served by the prophets and this grace and service was given through the gospel of our LORD Jesus Christ. The Prophets (Pink rectangle and highlight) The prophets predicted this grace (v.10) They did so in part by searching and investigating carefully (v.10) Part of what they prophesied was Christ's suffering and glory (v. 11) The prophets wanted to know when and to what person this takes place (v. 11) This means the prophets at their time, did not know it was specifically Christ (v. 11) The prophets had the Spirit of Christ in them (v. 11) The prophets were told that they were serving not themselves but the elect exiles, who were to come much later (v. 12) Questions / Thoughts: Is Peter referring to all prophets or only some? Which prophets would these be? How does Peter define a Prophet? Would it include Moses? Which parts of the prophecies refer to this grace, and the sufferings and glory of Christ? I would imagine that it takes a lot of trust to receive and give prophecies without knowing very much about them. The prophets obeyed because they trusted the Source of those messages. Summary The prophets foretold of Christ's suffering and glory without knowing who Christ would be, or when this would occur. Christ (Green rectangle and highlight) The Spirit of Christ was within the prophets (v. 11) It was predicted and planned for Christ to suffer and be glorified (v.11) The specific Person of Christ and time when He would appear was not known to the prophets (v.11) Questions/Thoughts: Would the Spirit of Christ and Christ be considered one or two Persons? The challenge of the Trinity which I have decided to make two Persons. So I have worked things out a little differently from Trevor. In v.11, is the "he testified beforehand" referring to the Spirit or to the prophets? I have decided it is the Spirit because prophets in this verse is plural, while the Spirit is singular. So based on grammar, I decided it is the Spirit. Summary Christ has a Spirit, who predicted His sufferings and glory. The specific Person of Christ was not revealed to the prophets. Holy Spirit (Blue rectangle and highlight) Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ (v.11 cf v.12) It is this Spirit that was giving the prophets the content of the prophecy (v.11) The Spirit is sent from heaven (I had to refer to the specifics of the Greek grammar, and the "sent" refers to the Spirit) (v.12) The message, the gospel that was preached to the exiles is ultimately from the Spirit (v.12) Question/Thoughts: Is the Holy Spirit the Person of the Trinity in charge of content of prophecies and the message of the gospel? Is the Spirit, who dwells in those of us in Christ, then dwelling on earth or is He still sent from Heaven? Summary The Holy Spirit and Spirit of Christ is one and the same. He is the One who speaks through prophets and evangelists. Evangelists-those who proclaimed the gospel (Red rectangle, purple highlight) "Those who proclaimed the gospel" in the Greek it means the evangelists (v.12) These evangelists convey the gospel in which are "things" (v. 12) These things are ultimately from the Spirit, the evangelists do not proclaim their own message (v.12) Question/ Thoughts Are the "things" in v.12 all that Peter had in mind in 1:1-12? Are there more things? Is anyone then who proclaims the gospel conveying these things fully? As I think of sharing the gospel, do I know these things, and am I seeking to do so by the Spirit? Summary Those who proclaim the gospel are evangelists, who convey "things" that are ultimately under the authority of the Holy Spirit. Angels (Brown dashed rectangle) Angels long to know these "things" (v.12) Angels exist (v.12) Angels do not know as much as the elect exiles (v.12) Questions/Thoughts There are many mysteries about angels and to know they exist and are in this world is rather fascinating. A question I ask myself is do I consider the unseen realm, and how all that I see and hear, touch and feel, is not the entire picture? Perhaps I would be more motivated to live better knowing I am seen by those I cannot see. What are the roles and duties of angels? Do angels still today not know these things? Summary Angels exist, and they do not know the things that were proclaimed to the elect exiles. Takeaway The things that are conveyed in the gospel are simply amazing, great treasure. Things that involve Christ and His suffering and glory. Things which the prophets and angels long to know, and which are made known through evangelists, in the gospel by the Spirit. There are such amazing things that have been given to us, things that need to be appreciated by taking the long view of the history and whole counsel of God's Word. Things which also are wonderful in the unseen realm. May I value these things well, oh God, help me do so.
