Christ-centered commentaries. This little work on the two
epistles to the Thessalonians is no exception.
In connection with First and Second Thessalonians the author
has written that, “In the different epistles, God has made rich
provision of spiritual food suitable for every stage of Christian
growth. The Thessalonian Epistles were written to the young
in the faith. Thus we do not fi nd unfolding of the counsels of
God, or of the Mystery of the Church, as in the Ephesians and
Colossians.” In both epistles, the apostle rather, focuses on
the subject of the Lord’s coming.
In the First Epistle the subjects of faith, love, and hope are
brought before us. The apostle comforts these new believers
in revealing the truth of the coming of the Lord for His saints.
In the Second Epistle Paul exposes the error that the “Day
of the Lord ” had already arrived and foretells the apostasy of
Christendom and the manifestation of the man of sin.
Both epistles close with practical exhortations connected
with the walk of the believers as they wait for the coming of
We highly recommend this commentary for both new and older believers alike.
