The primary focus of Mbuvi's study is an exegetical analysis of the temple imagery in the epistle of 1 Peter in light of the Second Temple Jewish framework of the lingering exile as an interpretive matrix. The focus is on 1 Peter's use of cultic language in constituting the new identity of the Petrine community. It is the claim of this study that temple imagery in 1 Peter undergirds the entire epistle.
