Holiness in Hardship Series

Christ Our Suffering Redeemer ( 1 Peter 3:18-22 )

Peter would have us look to Christ and find encouragement when we too face suffering for righteousness sake.
Connection to 3:17 - "For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God's will, than for doing evil."

Reminds us of Christ's words in the Sermon on the Mount

10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” - (Matthew 5:10-12)

1. The Suffering Redeemer - (18)
2. The Ark of Salvation - (19-21)
Three Questions:

1) Who are the "spirits in prison"?
Unbelievers who have died?
O.T. believers who have died?
Fallen angels?

2) What did Christ preach?
A second chance for repentance?
The completion of His redemptive work?
The certainty of final judgment?

3) When did He preach?
In the days of Noah?
Between His death and Resurrection?
After His resurrection?
Five Possible Views:

View 1: When Noah was building the ark, Christ ‘in spirit’ was in Noah preaching repentance and righteousness through him to unbelievers who were on the earth then but are now ‘spirits in prison’ (people in hell).

View 2: After Christ died, he went and preached to people in hell, offering them a second chance of salvation.

View 3: After Christ died, he went and preached to people in hell, proclaiming to them that he had triumphed over them and their condemnation was final.

View 4: After Christ died, he proclaimed release to people who had repented just before they died in the flood, and led them out of their imprisonment (in Purgatory) into heaven.

Types of Baptism in the Scriptures

1. Israel baptized into Moses
2. John the baptizer for repentance in preparation for the Messiah
3. Jesus' own baptism
4. Baptism of / by the Holy Spirit
5. Believer's baptism as public testimony of faith in Christ
