A Commentary on 1 and 2 Thessalonians: A Resource for Teachers (and Students)

James K Crews (Author)


Where will you be when Christ returns? What will you be doing? Even more importantly, when Christ evaluates your life, what will He say? What will He do? The church in Thessalonica had similar concerns. They were living under intense persecution and thought that they must be in the Great Tribulation. Paul identified several key events that must come before the Day of the Lord. He provides today's readers with important warnings against deception and the work of the coming antichrist. Perhaps most importantly, he tells his readers how to live in these last days so they will be pleasing to God and have no shame or sorrow when they see Christ. This commentary on 1 and 2 Thessalonians is designed to explain Paul's instructions to the church in a clear and understandable fashion. It is intended to provide teachers and pastors with background information and supplemental material to help answer student's questions. Every topic discussed in this commentary includes Scripture references for supporting texts for the point being explained. The author's goal in these discussions is to establish an understanding that affects both mind and behavior. The ultimate intention of a believer's life is not happiness, wealth or fame. It is to respond to life's difficulties so as to receive Christ's praise of "well done, good and faithful servant" at his or her final judgment.James K.
