Bible Text: 1 Thessalonians 1:1-3:13 |


An introduction to Paul's first letter to the young church at Thessalonica, which is establishing itself amid persecution and attacks on Paul's apostlic authority. The church has experienced the power of God's word and Paul encourages them on how they "ought to live and to please God" (4:1). He also focuses on Jesus' second coming (parousia), the resurrection and the end times. (107 mins)
