Description

The study of Paul's Thessalonian letters is enjoying fresh interest today. These texts are considered by many to be amongst 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, socio-cultural, 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.

An Introduction to 1 and 2 Thessalonians, A Video Study parallels 1 and 2 Thessalonians in the Zondervan Critical Introductions to the New Testament series, addresses:
