Title: Chosen through Sanctification (1 Pet 1,2 and 2 Thess 2,13)
Subtitle: The Theology or Diction of Silvanus?
Author(s): SARGENT, Benjamin
Journal: Biblica
Volume: 94    Issue: 1   Date: 2013   
Pages: 117-120
DOI: 10.2143/BIB.94.1.3186142

Abstract :
This short study re-examines the theory, dominant for much of the 20th¬†Century, that Silvanus acted as an amanuensis in the composition of 1 Peter. The phrase only ἐν ἁγιασμῷ πνεύματος in 1 Pet 1,2 and 2 Thess 2,13 in the New Testament, both of which have a stated association with Silvanus. In addition to this, the phrase is theologically incongruous, bearing no clear relation to the broader theology of either epistle.
