Overview

For each section of the Bible, the Focus on the Bible Commentaries summarize the passage of Scripture, including the intentions of the authors, the historical and cultural environment, and the questions and issues raised by a particular passage. But most importantly, the Focus on the Bible Commentaries brings you into the heart of the Bible, by explaining Scripture in an accessible way that makes sense for daily Christian living.

The Thessalonian epistles give us relevant glimpses of the church’s earliest times. When looking at the early church many contemporary questions arise such as:

  • What is true Gospel?
  • How do you plant a church?

These are questions that exercise our modern church just as much as the historic Thessalonian one.

Paul's first letter was written to encourage and reassure the Christians in Thessolonica. He gives thanks for their faith and love, he reminds them of his example on godly living, and he answers questions about the return of Christ. In his second letter we find Paul still dealing with confusion over the return of Christ, especially with those who believed the Lord's coming had already arrived. He also shows that evil and wickedness will reach a crescendo under the leadership of a mysterious figure called “the wicked one.” He tells them to remain steady in all that they have learned.

Mayhue's skill in interpreting the text accurately but with humor and modern parallels comes through in this fascinating commentary. These timeless letters provide up-to-date answers from a consecrated church, shepherded by godly men devoted to God and to his word.

What’s more, with the Logos edition, Scripture passages are linked to your favorite English translation for quick reference, or to your Greek and Hebrew texts for original-language study! That gives you quick access to the message of the Bible as you study it! You can also read the 1 & 2 Thessalonians: Triumphs and Trials of a Consecrated Church along with your Bible dictionaries, encyclopedias, and the wealth of other Bible study tools in your digital library. This commentary will serve as a vital aid for sermon preparation, for personal and group Bible study, and for anyone looking to apply the text of Scripture to practical Christian life.
