The theme of 1 Peter is that the true grace of God has been exemplified in Christ and is to be emulated by Christians. Grace [Gk charis—grace, gift, favor, gratitude; 8x in 1 Peter; 2x in 2 Peter] is the unmerited favor bestowed by both God the Father and by Jesus Christ (Romans 5:15; 2 Corinthians 1:12; Gal 1:6; 2 Thessalonians 1:12) upon those who have placed their faith in Christ for salvation.
