A Sacred Texture Analysis of 1 Peter

Creative and innovative intertexture use

To communicate clearly with his audience, Peter reconfigured or recontextualized text drawn from Old Testament sources familiar to his audience. In both his speech at Pentecost (Acts 2:14-40) and in 1 Peter, Peter creatively reconfigured and recontextualized certain Old Testament texts to make his argument. In Acts 2, Peter proclaimed the coming of God’s Holy Spirit as the fulfillment of Old Testament promises from Joel and Psalms – God initiated Spirit empowerment to His people. In First Peter, Peter innovatively recontextualized the Old Testament texts identifying Israel as the people of God to apply the Old Testament promises to first-century believers. Bauman-Martin posits that whatNext Page started out as an insular movement to the Jews in Jerusalem and Galilee, grew into a hybrid identity of the family of God and applied the promises given to the Old Testament Jews to the new community of believers. The first-century believers needed to break through the barriers of traditional interpretation of data to fully appropriate God’s promises into their communities.
