1 Peter 5:1 Parallel
CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
Also an elder (συμπρεσβύτερος)
Only here in New Testament. Better, as Rev., fellow-elder. The expression is decisive against the primacy of Peter.
The word is used in the New Testament to denote (a) a spectator or eye-witness (Acts 10:39; Acts 6:13). (b) One who testifies to what he has seen (Acts 1:8; Acts 5:32). (c) In the forensic sense, a witness in court (Matthew 26:65; Mark 14:63). (d) One who vindicates his testimony by suffering: a martyr (Acts 22:20; Hebrews 12:1; Revelation 2:13; Revelation 17:6). The first three meanings run into each other. The eye-witness, as a spectator, is always such with a view to giving testimony. Hence this expression of Peter cannot be limited to the mere fact of his having seen what he preached; especially since, when he wishes to emphasize this fact, he employs another word, ἐπόπτης (2 Peter 1:16). Therefore he speaks of himself as a witness, especially in the sense of being called to testify of what he has seen.

also. [Sumpresbuteros,] a fellow-elder, one on a level with yourselves.
You are witnesses of these things.
And they did so, sending it to the elders by the hand of Barnabas and Saul.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
1 Peter 1:5
who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
1 Peter 1:7
so that the tested genuineness of your faith--more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire--may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 4:13
But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.
