Description

An introduction to 1 and 2 Thessalonians by a Leading New Testament Scholar

The study of Paul’s Thessalonian letters is enjoying fresh interest today. These texts are considered by many to be among the earliest extant Christian documents. They are included in conversations about early Jewish and Christian apocalypticism. New insights are coming from examination of the religious, sociocultural, and political contexts of Roman Thessalonica. And, looking back, these letters have played an important role in the development of Christian eschatology.

An Introduction to 1 and 2 Thessalonians, A Video Study, taught by Nijay Gupta, serves as an up-to-date guide to these discussions and much more. This series provides an introduction to questions of authorship, audience, sociohistorical context, textual history, main interpretive issues, and more.
