The striking feature of 1 Thessalonians is that the coming of the Lord is the prominent subject in every chapter. Faith, love, and hope are beautifully seen throughout this book and the Second Epistle as well.
2 Thessalonians, like 1 Thessalonians, is pastoral in character, but deals with those subtle influences that so soon threatened to rob this young assembly of its fresh, ardent affection for the Lord. Therefore, added to the refreshing encouragement of the First Epistle are faithful admonitions of the Second, the season- ing of salt, to preserve the testimony of God.
In a concise way, this commentary will enable us to “listen in” and understand as the apostle Paul teaches the Thessalonian believers in these two epistles. You will learn about Christ’s second coming, the Rapture and the coming Antichrist—may we heed its message!
