Kiss of Love

1 Peter 5:12-14. Kiss of Love -AD64 – 1st Peter.
The Jewish way of greeting close friends was to hug and kiss them on the side of the face. Many Mediterranean countries still use this form of greeting even today for close friends and family.

1st Peter, the 14th New Testament book, was written by the apostle Peter in AD64.

Remember the kiss of betrayal, Judas kissing Jesus, in the Easter unit.

Final Greetings

5:12 Through Silvanus, whom I regard as a faithful brother, I have written this short letter to encourage you and to testify that this is to be the true grace of God in which you are to stand firm! 13 Your sister church in Babylon, chosen along with you, sends you greetings, as does Mark, whom I regard as a son. 14 Greet one another with a loving kiss. Peace be to all of you who are in the Messiah!
1 Peter 5:12-14
