So Peter is the guy who violently defended Jesus by cutting a guard’s ear off in the Garden of Gethsemane. Yet here we find him telling folks in the early church to “repay evil with blessing.” It seems like when Peter saw the way Jesus died, forgiving his enemies, it had an impact on him. Such an impact that he does a 180 and is telling folks that it is commendable to endure unjust suffering.
