Welcome to the Second Letter to the church in Thessalonica. It should be stressed that this is a letter written by the Apostle Paul to people in Thessalonica whom he knew and had brought them to faith in Christ himself (see Acts 17). It is, therefore, a somewhat personal letter with some details we are not privy to.
We will be listening in on Paul’s conversation to a church he knew and loved.
As we read through this letter in our Sunday services you will notice the phrase ‘brothers’ (and sisters) occurring several times in the letter (in 1:3, 2:1, 2:13, 3:1, 3:6, 3:13). We will use these as section markers in the book but the real significance is the relationship that Paul has with this church. He sees them as brothers and sisters in the Lord.
Sermons from this 2 Thessalonians series will be uploaded to the sermon lounge for anyone to listen to.
