This book explores Mark’s possible involvement in composing 1 Peter from
five angles by means of a historical and comparative approach. These are
(a) the dominant practice of using an amanuensis in first-century letter
writing, (b) the noteworthy employment of an amanuensis by Paul as a
contemporary of Peter, (c) possible historical connections, (d) possible
linguistic connections, and (e) possible literary connections. The
investigation leads to the conclusion that Mark might have been the
contributive amanuensis for 1 Peter, with Peter allowing more than a free
hand in the composition.
