This paper explores how an understanding of exemplarity in Greek and Roman literature could shed light on the New Testament letter of 1 Peter. Both Greek and Latin literature displays a clear preference for internal exempla, whether this is parsed at the familial, ethnic, or national level. Since 1 Peter defines Christians as a newly-begotten family, nation, and race, this paper argues that the structures of exemplarity are deployed in 1 Peter, but in a distinctively Christian way.
