Patrick T. Egan

Ecclesiology and the Scriptural Narrative of 1 Peter

Reviewed by Torrey Seland

This volume represents the publication of a PhD dissertation written at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. The goal of the work is to carry out a study of the role of Isaiah in 1 Peter. As it is stated in the introduction, over half of the quotations in 1 Peter are taken from Isaiah. In addition, Egan suggests, the use of the quotations and allusions from 1 Peter are important for understanding the ecclesiology of 1 Peter. Egan’s thesis runs as follows: “the ecclesiology of First Peter draws upon the narrative of the restoration of divine presence among his people presently experiencing suffering, which is informed largely by the themes and images of the Isaianic corpus, so that the church is identified as participants in this scriptural narrative through its participation in Christ, who is understood to be the Messiah of the scriptures” .
