Identifying salvific metaphors in 1 Peter
Not many research findings have been published on soteriology in 1 Peter. This article attempts to make a contribution from a specific angle, viz by identifying the salvific metaphors in 1 Peter and the imageries they constitute. After a survey of the state of the art on soteriology in 1 Peter, the relevant methodological issues (pertaining to soteriology, metaphor and the socio-historical ecology of metaphors) are considered. Then an interpretation of the argument of 1 Peter is given. Finally the salvific metaphors in 1 Peter are identified, a tentative inter- pretation is given, and a matrix of these metaphors is proposed.
