# INTRODUCTION  ;  ; Since Peter is proclaimed as the first Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, I thought that it would be advantageous to go through the epistles of I and II Peter and glean out anything that would be useful in witnessing to a Roman Catholic. ; I used The New American Bible which is an easy-to-read Catholic version that is put out by the Catholic Biblical Association of America. ; It is a study Bible and has the approval of the Vatican.  ;  ; The following are passages and explanations of how I see their usefulness in witnessing to Catholics. ; I did not pick passages that need a lot of explanation or need explanation from outside of I and II Peter. I PETER PASSAGE ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; PURPOSE OF THIS PASSAGE 1:2 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; I will stress ";... consecrated by the Spirit  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; to a life of obedience to Jesus Christ and  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; purification with His blood."; ; Discussing  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; what is meant by the purification of Christ's  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; blood is an important place to start. 2:4-7 ;  ;  ;  ;  ; This passage can be compared to Matthew 16:18  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; to show that Christ is the cornerstone. 2:9 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; This passage can used to show the priesthood  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; of the believer over a chosen few who are  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; called priests by the Catholic Church. 3:18 ;  ;  ;  ;  ; This passage talks about ";The reason why  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Christ died for sins once for all ... might  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; lead you to God."; ; This passage shows why  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Christ died and His victory over death. 5:1 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ";To the elders among you I, a fellow elder  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ..."; shows that Peter did not see himself  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; above the other elders of the church, but as  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; an equal.  ;  ; II PETER PASSAGE ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; PURPOSE OF THIS PASSAGE 1:1 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ";Simon Peter, servant and apostle of Jesus  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Christ ..."; shows that Peter is the servant  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; of Jesus and not of Mary. 1:17-18 ;  ;  ;  ; This passage tells of the time that Peter and  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; the apostles heard God talk from heaven  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; saying that He was well pleased with Jesus  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; His Son. ; I have had Catholics say to me,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ";How can we really be sure that there is a  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; God?"; ; This would be a scriptural passage  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; from that of an eyewitness, Peter himself. 1:20-21 ;  ;  ;  ; This passage can of course be used to show  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Peter's claim to the inspiration of the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; scriptures. 2:4-15 ;  ;  ;  ; This passage shows that God did not spare the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; angels that sinned, the people from Noah's  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; time, and the people of Sodom and Gomorrah,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; but that He did spare Lot, a righteous man.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; It then goes on to show that God does judge  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; the wicked. ; Purgatory, salvation through  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Mary, Joseph or the saints is not mentioned  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; here even though a wicked life has been  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; lived. 3:6-13 ;  ;  ;  ; This passage shows that Christ will come  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; again and that He will be as a thief in the  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; night. ; He will come for the purpose of  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; judgment. ; To sincere Roman Catholics, this  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; passage will make them think about their  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; system of salvation by works and if they are  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; really going to heaven. ; This would be a good  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; passage for creating doubt in their minds. 3:15-16 ;  ;  ;  ; This is a great passage showing the fact that  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Paul's writings are scripture. ; Tying this  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; back into II Peter 1:20-21, I can then take  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; them (with Peter's consent) into any other  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; part of scripture, but especially Paul's  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; writings to give them a clearer salvation  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; message.
