1 and 2 Thessalonians treats the literary context and structure of the passage in its original Greek, as well as an original translation based on the literary structure. Critical scholarship informs each step but doesn’t dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on Paul’s message to the Thessalonians as it unfolds. While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find this book beneficial.

“Who was the typical Christian in Thessalonica at the time of 1 Thessalonians? He or she was from a pagan background, spoke koinē Greek as a first language, could not read or write, kept house or was a manual laborer or a slave,16 had never set foot inside a synagogue, had newly pledged to an ethic that was sharply different from that of the local environment, shared his or her faith with unbelievers, experienced serious harassment from family and society, and knew someone who had been physically punished, imprisoned, or maybe killed for the faith.” (Page 24)

“First Thessalonians is an outpouring of their relief and gratitude to God for his protection of their Thessalonian ‘children.’” (Page 17)

“that Christ’s resurrection guarantees the resurrection of believers who have died before his return.” (Page 176)
