Was 1 Peter Written to Jews?—This Changes Everything!

The other day I began to read 1 Peter devotionally. I did not make it through the first verse before something that I had never seen jumped out at me. Do you see it?

Peter, an apostle of Jesus the Messiah. To God’s elect, exiles scattered throughout the provinces of Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia, who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit.” (1 Pet. 1:1-2)
