In this passage, it almost seems like Peter is heavily focused on persecution of the Christians he's writing to... and then he just switches gears and talks about something totally unrelated. It seems that way, but it's not.
OPENING: When I asked you to turn to I Peter 3:13 this morning, did you realize that about 800 years ago… you couldn’t have done that?
Do you know WHY you couldn’t have turned to I Peter 3 back then?
Because there were no chapter divisions. That didn’t happen until 1227,
