This article argues that the author of 1 Peter uses the expression not as a reference to the word of God as is suggested by many modern scholars (Achtemeier; Boring), but rather to the whole doctrine of Christ resulting in a new way of life (Jobes). The article consists of an overview of First Peter, its authorship and audience and the characteristics of the letter. It discusses the texts of both 1 Peter 2:1-3 and its influence by LXX Psalm 33.
