Peter, Eat Your Cake To Have It


Worldly wisdom tells us we cannot eat our cake and have it too.

It is a simple equation, for the world.

If you eat your cake, it will disappear, bite by bite, until all that is left are crumbs on an empty plate. There is no way to both have your beautiful cake sitting perfectly on its pedestal platter, and also to eat it. But Peter wrote that the only way to have your cake is first to eat it.

This ten minute presentation continues in the series on Peter’s Letters, featured on the YouTube channel, Grace and Peace Joanne


Each video is designed to offer background scholarship on the topic, including setting, culture, original language, and archaeology, as well as a theological study.
