Book Introduction

The First Epistle of Paul The Apostle to the Thessalonians

WRITER The apostle Paul (1Th 1.1)

DATE The Epistle was written from Corinth, A.D. 54, shortly after Paul's departure from Thessalonica (Ac 16., 17.), and is the earliest of his letters.

THEME The theme of the Epistle is threefold:

(1) To confirm young disciples in the foundational truths already taught them;

(2) to exhort them to go on to holiness;

(3) to comfort them concerning those who had fallen asleep. The second coming of Christ is prominent throughout. The Epistle is incidentally most interesting as showing the richness in doctrine of the primitive evangelism. During a mission of about one month the apostle had taught all the great doctrines of the Christian faith.

The divisions of the Epistle are sufficiently indicated by the Chapters.

I. The model church, and the three tenses of the Christian life 1.1-10

II. The model servant and his reward 2.1-20

III. The model brother, and the believer's sanctification 3.1-13

IV. The model walk, and the believer's hope, 4.1-18

V. The model walk, and the day of Jehovah, 5.1-28

Of Love to God
I proceed to the second general branch of the text. The persons interested in this privilege. They are lovers of God. "All things work together for good, to them that love God." Despisers and haters of God have no lot or part in this privilege. It is children's bread, it belongs only to them that love God. Because love is the very heart and spirit of religion, I shall the more fully treat upon this; and for the further discussion of it, let us notice these five things concerning love to God. 1. The
