Jülicher on 1 Peter

Just finished my 1 Peter essay.
Didn't get to put this quote in.
(What else are blogs for?)

Every word of the Epistle is directed towards encouraging and strengthening the readers in the face of persecution and suffering: they were not on that account to lose sight of the great hope or to fall back exhausted into the old ways, nay rather, by dwelling in light, love and purity, they must provoke the admiration of their enemies, and advance the victory of the Gospel.
Adolf Jülicher (obviously before Adolf was a name only for tyrants), An Introduction to the New Testament Smith, Elder, & Co.: London, 1904. p206-207
