Question Did Peter write his first epistle from Rome?

I noticed he closed his first epistle with a greeting from 'the church in Babylon' and mentioning his son, Marcus.

Also, Paul wrote in one of his epistles that Cephas had taken a wife.

Did Peter settle down in Rome, marry, have a child, and tend the church in Rome as bishop while Paul traveled to and fro to preach the gospel?

My personal opinion is that he wrote it from the Macedonian very early in Church history, maybe before God revealed to him to spread the Gospel to the Gentiles.

Paul was referring to Peter's wife which he also had while with Jesus. There is a reference to Peter's mother-in-law.

Mt 8:14
When Jesus came into Peter's home, He saw his mother-in-law lying sick in bed with a fever.

By the time that Peter went to Rome he was most likely a widower. There is no talk of his wife being there in the early writings.

First Peter was composed at Rome (5:13) sometime in AD 50-67. He wrote it as a letter of encouragement.

St. Peter taught the Cappadocians too. Hmm... looks very...liturgical.

Modeled after the Temple... why is that? The room pictured represents the Holy of Holies.



Forgive me...

Here's one from the catacombe de roma.



Notice the Eucharistic Bread on the Altar?

These things exist in all the Churches where St. Peter taught.

The Church of Antioch as well.

Very Liturgical for a fisherman... don't you think?

Forgive me...

Thank you, I had since read and understood that Peter already had his wife in Jerusalem. Markus sure is a roman name though.

Not completely clear.

Paul went to Rome, but said he didn't want to go where others had preached Christ. Either a slap at Peter or Peter went there after Paul or something else.

Wasn't Babylon a 'code word' for Rome?

It's possible that Marcus was Peter's biological son, since he was married...but, it's also possible that it's John Mark...just as Paul made a habit of referring to Timothy as his son, meaning his child in the faith.

if it was his biological son, maybe he named him marcus because he was in rome now and wanted to give his son a latin name?
