Paul’s second letter to the Thessalonians is as relevant for us today as it was for first-century Thessalonian believers to whom he wrote. Its three main themes—the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, intercessory prayer, and local church discipline—were addressed to a young church experiencing trouble, discrimination, and harassment because of their commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ. Here Ian McNaughton unpacks these themes, demonstrating the timeless importance of each one in encouraging strong and assured hope in the midst of suffering.
