Each one of you has received a special grace, so, like good stewards responsible for all these varied graces of God, put it at the service of others(1Pt 4:10). The First Letter of Peter addresses the adversities faced by the Christian communities of the Roman diaspora towards the end of the first century: a moment of articular challenges for the Church, which receives a message with a high theological value. The text is addressed to Christians converted from paganism, to the exiles of the dispersed tribes in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia (1:1). Peter encourages them to stand fast in the grace of God (5:12) and exhorts them to dedication and patient perseverance(1:13, 4:19, 5:7-8) in the face of trials and difficulties. Chapter 4, in particular, is divided into three section highlights the parallel between the suffering that Christ endured in his own flesh and the sentiments that must animate Christians (vv. 1-2). The second portrays the "different" connotation of Christians in the social context in which they live (vv. 3-6). The last section begins with the eschatological perspective and focuses on the communitarian dynamics in the life of the Christians with clear and valuable directives (vv.7-11).
