1 Thessalonians

Teacher: Gordy Gates

Listen to the book of 1 Thessalonians from BibleGateway: ESV, KJV, MSG, NIV

The last chapter of Matthew (chapter 28) from last week's study was on the resurrection and there is no question that Paul, dealing with the Thessalonians, is addressing further the resurrection and hope. There are four themes in the book of 1 Thessalonians:

  1. Persecution
  2. Ministry
  3. Hope
  4. Being prepared

There are only five chapters in 1 Thessalonians, so read it, digest it and come with your ideas on the different themes in this book.
