The Letters to the Thessalonians
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThe newest volume in the Pillar New Testament Commentary series interprets 1 and 2 Thessalonians in light of new knowledge about the first-century world of Thessalonica. This fruitful approach better illuminates the impact of the gospel on its original readers and, in turn, shows how potent a force it can be for the church and society today.Gene L. Green first provides an in-depth study of the Thessalonians themselves -- their history, land, socioeconomic conditions, and religious environment. This fascinating discussion leads into informed verse-by-verse commentary that extracts the fullest possible meaning from these important New Testament texts.By carefully bridging the biblical and modern worlds, Green clarifies just what these pastorally astute letters say about many areas in which Christians often seek guidance -- perseverance amid suffering and trials, attitudes toward daily work, questions concerning Christ's second coming, and more.
