Those who object to Petrine authorship present several arguments: (1) The quality of the Greek used in this letter, "some of the best Greek in the whole NT" (Beare), is beyond that which Peter the fisherman would have used. (2) The OT (Old Testament) quotations coming from the Septuagint would not have been used by Peter, who was partial to the Hebrew. (3) There is no mention of Paul although the letter is addressed to people in Paul's area of mission activity. (4) Many concepts are "Pauline" and thus must come from a later time.

Precisely who are these exiles, sojourners, refugees, or aliens? Are the terms strangers (paroikoi) and exiles (parepidemoi*)both appearing in 2:11to be taken literally, as Elliott argues in A Home for the Homeless?
