This study leads in a close examination of these two epistles of Paul to the Thessalonian church he planted and loved. Each lesson s five days of questions (along with helpful comments and context) guide in a process of careful study and application of the biblical text. The shape and themes of each epistle emerge, as well as Paul s overriding focus on the second coming of Jesus as a constant lens through which to live and learn and even suffer. Paul s loving encouragement and careful teaching about holy living and working in preparation for Jesus coming can speak powerfully to Christians today.
