1 & 2 Thessalonians BCC 12/21/11
So much more than just end times prophecy…
The Thessalonian epistles are probably best known for what they reveal about the last days. Charles Ryries says, “They sparkle with the brilliance of the captivating power of the gospel of the grace of Christ.” Dr. Walvoord’s commentary on these epistles has been edited and streamlined by Philip Rawley and supplemented by prophecy expert Mark Hitchcock. Together they help to keep Walvoord’s great commentary teaching viable for future generations of Bible students!
In the first century Thessalonica was the capital of Macedonia and a thriving commercial center with a population of about 200,000. The church of Thessalonica was founded by Paul and Silas on Paul’s second missionary journey in the spring of AD 50. While Paul communicated much truth to the group of young believers at Thessalonica regarding eschatology, these epistles also cover many additional doctrinal and practical problems.
1 Thessalonians covers topics including salvation, service, sanctification, surety, and safety. 2 Thessalonians includes correcting wrong understanding, comforting and encouraging believers to be steadfast, correcting disorderliness in the church, and addressing persecutors, false teachers, and idle church members.
John F. Walvoord’s scholarly research and writing has been greatly expanded on by Mark Hitchcock. With additional introductory and background material, charts, in-depth explanations at key points, and the Bible content updated with the English Standard Version (ESV), this volume of the Walvoord Commentary series expertly guides you on end times prophecy and all the issues of the Thessalonian church!
