On account of the lack of redemptive-historical methodology in recent research on 1 Peter, this thesis seeks to answer how the Exodus event express itself in 1 Peter and what is its distinctive contribution for the New Testament church. This study suggests that while Peter writes within a socio-political background, he uses an Exodus/New Exodus framework. The author manifests this New Exodus paradigm by inserting throughout the letter quotations and allusions to the Old Testament that reference the Exodus narrative and/or its redemptive-historical and eschatological interpretations of the Prophets (especially Isaiah and the Psalms). Most of these allusions occur within programmatic passages of 1 Peter, thus repeatedly reaffirming the proposed framework.
