New Defender's Study Bible Notes

1:1 our hope Our “hope” is not in this world; it is Christ, not some vague wish but a “confident expectation,” which is the meaning of the Greek word. It is a “blessed hope” (Titus 2:13), a living hope (I Peter 1:3), a saving hope (Romans 8:24), a glorious hope (Colossians 1:27), a joyful hope (Romans 5:2), a reasonable hope (I Peter 3:15), a purifying hope (I John 3:3), a stabilizing hope (Hebrews 6:19), and an everlasting hope (II Thessalonians 2:16).
