1 Peter 3:18-20

Our salvation is a perfect illustration of why we should do good. Jesus died for all people, regardless of their race or social stature. The just one died for the sins of all of us—the unjust.

Now Peter follows an unusual train of thought here in 3:19-20. These are difficult verses. Keep the following thought in mind: Jesus proclaimed his victory over sin and death. Noah’s family represents those who were saved at the time of the great flood.
