Abstract [en]

This essay examines how the author of 1 Peter exhorted Christ-believing slaves and wives in 1 Pet 2:18-3:6, a passage that invites questions about submission, questions that, in contemporary contexts, are oftentimes controversial. The essay also calls attention to the advantages and the complexities of understanding 2:18-3:6 relative to ancient Roman familial and hierarchical structures. A close exegetical analysis of the passage points out a variety of scholarly viewpoints on ”Peter’s” admonitions to slaves and wives. Following the exegetical analysis, attention is given to feminist hermeneutics and to potential uses of this biblical text in contemporary contexts. An overarching question is whether, and how, the text could be applied to a contemporary context without contributing to oppression in our time. A central argument is that the ”household codes” in 2:18-3:6 are unusual in that they pertain to believers’ behavior not only within the Christian community but also among nonbelievers.
