At a glance, the First Epistle of Peter reads like a guide to subservience. Alluding to the Exodus narrative, however, Jisk Steetskamp's study goes beneath the surface to uncover a hidden message of resistance. He argues that by putting readers in the slaves' position, this paraenesis – most likely written by an educated Jewish slave – actually serves as a blueprint for a new and more just way of life.
