Description : In this commentary Gene Green reads Paul's two letters to the Thessalonians in light of the canon of Scripture and of new knowledge about the first-century world of Thessalonica. This fruitful approach helps illuminate the impact of the gospel on its original readers and, in turn, shows how potent a force it can be for the church and society today. The book begins with an in-depth study of the Thessalonians themselves -- their history, land, socioeconomic conditions, and religious environment. This fascinating discussion gives the necessary context for fully appreciating the circumstances surrounding the founding of the city's first church and the subsequent struggles of the Thessalonian believers to live out their Christian faith. The main body of the book provides informed verse-by-verse commentary on 1 & 2 Thessalonians that extracts the fullest possible meaning from these important New Testament texts. As Green's exposition shows, the Thessalonian scriptures are especially valuable as letters of friendship and for showing Paul's pastoral concern for the many areas in which the Thessalonians needed guidance. Some of Paul's purposes are to thank the new believers for their steadfastness amid suffering, to encourage them in their trials, to urge them not to neglect their daily work, and, no less important, to teach them about the future of believers who die before Christ returns. Indeed, the matter of the last things and the second coming of Christ so permeates these texts that they are often called Paul's eschatological letters. Filled with new information about ancient society, this commentary will fast become a standard reference work for Bible study. By carefully bridging the biblical and modern worlds, Green shows with clarity and warmth the continuing relevance of 1 & 2 Thessalonians for contemporary readers.

Description : In The First and Second Letters to the Thessalonians Gordon Fee?s first aim is a fresh exposition of the biblical text. He shows the reader what is in the text, then what was meant by the text and what it means. Fee reveals the logic of each argument or narrative before moving on to the details of each verse. He concludes each section with a theological or applicational reflection on the meaning of the text today. / In order to make his work not only useful, but also understandable, Fee uses diagrams of sentence structure, italics for emphasis, and a listing of points. He explores authorship, the city of Thessalonica, and the occasion for writing for each epistle, restoring 2 Thessalonians to the place it deserves as a full companion to the first letter, rather than merely a tagalong to 1 Thessalonians. / Like Fee?s previous volumes in this series, this insightful, thoroughly readable commentary on Paul?s two letters of thanksgiving, information, encouragement, and exhortation to the separated, suffering community of Gentile converts in Thessalonica is destined to become the premier work on these books. / ?Fee could not be boring even if he tried. The zest of his prose makes him exciting to read, and his scholarship is always rigorous.?? D. A. Carson

Description : Marlene Crüsemann examines the Thessalonian letters in the context of Jewish-Christian social history; building upon her analysis of 1 Thessalonians, Crüsemann comes to the conclusion that it is post-apostolic epistolary communication, and questions whether it is a letter of Paul and indeed whether it is an early letter. This analysis in turn adds weight to the thesis, propounded by some previous scholars, that the letter is somewhat out of place and may be a later work by another author. Crüsemann subsequently illustrates that 2 Thessalonians, by contrast, revokes the far-reaching social separation from Judaism that characterizes 1 Thessalonians, and thus aims socio-historically at a solidarity with the entire Jewish people. Analysing the concept of the Jews as supposed enemy, the future of the Greek gentile community, and the relationship between the two letters, Crüsemann concludes that the discussion about a "divergence of the ways of Christians and Jews" in early Christian times needs to be realigned.

Description : The First Epistle to the Thessalonians, commonly referred to as First Thessalonians or 1 Thessalonians, is a Pauline epistle of the New Testament of the Christian Bible. The epistle is attributed to Paul the Apostle and is addressed to the church in Thessalonica, in modern-day Greece. Even though eschatology is a prominent theme in 1 and 2 Thessalonians, this book makes the complicated simple in a "common sense" approach to the Scripture. Throughout the book, supplementary material is proved to give the reader deeper insight into some of the more difficult passages. While Paul's letters to the Thessalonians are often seen as a roadblock to Covenant Eschatology, the contextual evidence for a preterist view of Thessalonians is prominent in every chapter as seen in this short, but powerful book

Description : The two letters to the Thessalonians dwell richly on the Christian hope and emphasize the meaning and earnestness of the Christian?s calling in the present world. In this commentary Morris offers a solid exegetical discussion of specific problems relating to the composition of the letters themselves, yet his exposition is also pervaded by an acute awareness of the relevance of Paul?s message to the practical problems encountered in living the Christian life.

Description : Scholars continue to debate whether Second Thessalonians was written by Paul or by pseudonym. The position that the letter is a late imitation is largely based on the comparison of the parallel expressions of two epistles to the Thessalonians. There are more words and phrases that are shared between these two letters than there are in any other two New Testament letters. William Wrede's study is the ultimate source of scholarly perception of these parallels. Not only does Wrede locate some exact parallels, he also finds definite words, verses, and related passages that precisely mirror and reflect their counterparts in First Thessalonians. Scholars who conclude that Second Thessalonians is pseudonymous owe much of that conclusion to Wrede's work. Wrede's order of the Greek parallels has been reproduced with his original annotations in this translation.

Description : In this book, Barclay examines three very varied, but important, letters from Paul. Known as the "Epistle of Joy", his letter to the Philippians is a letter of encouragement to his dearest of friends. In his letter to Colossians, Paul dedicates some of his highest thinking to the relatively insignificant town of Colosse and defends the Church there from a dangerous heresy; and Thessalonians, Paul reassures the Christians of this town, so vital in the emergence of Christianity as a world faith, and firm solutions to the day-to-day problems which arose in the new and expanding Church.
