Originally published in as a contribution to the New International Commentary on the New Testament, Morris's commentary has not been surpassed Cited by: The Epistle of Paul to the Colossians, (or simply Colossians), is the twelfth book of the New was written, according to the text, by Paul the Apostle and Timothy to the Church in Colossae, a small Phrygian city near Laodicea and approximately miles ( km) from Ephesus in Asia Minor.

The first epistle was penned at Corinth by the apostle Paul in response to Timothy’s report on the progress of the church they had recently established there (). Paul's Second Epistle to the Thessalonians is in one sense a follow-up to the first letter.

Evidently, the first letter was well received. People were satisfied with Paul's explanation concerning those who died and were ready and willing to suffer persecution if need be in order to remain true to the gospel that Paul.

Second comparing 2 Corinthians ; 2 Corinthians ,13; and 2 Corinthians of the epistle, with \\#Ac \\, we learn the place and the circumstances of the apostle when this epistle was written. He had heard through Titus, who is here mentioned for the first time, the effects of his first epistle to the same church, and this information led to the writing.

1 and 2 Thessalonians Writing with gratitude and affection to a church that he had visited only briefly, Paul’s first and second epistles to the Thessalonians offer words of encouragement to a faithful but struggling church, and they focus particularly on the encouragement offered by the return of Christ.

John MacArthur - Background and Setting - For the history of Thessalonica, see Introduction to 1 Thessalonians: Background and Setting. Some have suggested that Paul penned this letter from Ephesus (Acts –21), but his 18 month stay in Corinth provided ample time both for the Thessalonian epistles to be authored (Acts ).

This was the beginning of spreading the Gospel from the continent of Asia to the continent of Europe. Going to Thessalonica transferred the ministry of the Gospel to Western civilization. Macedonia was the former kingdom of Alexander the Great (he wanted one world domination and enlightenment with the culture of Greece.

He wanted to marry east and west.). The First and Second Epistles to the Thessalonians By Leon Morris The two letters to the Thessalonians dwell richly on the Christian hope and emphasize the significance of the Christian calling in the here and now.

In this commentary Leon Morris offers a solid exegetical discussion of. The Second Letter of Paul to the Thessalonians - Θεσσαλονικεῖς Β - is preceded by First Thessalonians, and followed by his First Letter to Timothy in the New Testament of the Bible.

Second Thessalonians is important because of its apocalyptic nature, for it describes the events that will take place before the Parousia, the Second Coming of the Lord.

Paul had founded the church in Galatia (modern day Turkey) around 51 A.D., then continued his missionary journeys. During his absence, however, groups of false teachers had corrupted the Galatians by claiming that Christians must continue to observe the different laws from the Old Testament in order to remain clean before God.

The letter was explicitly addressed to “the church of the Thessalonians”, () located in that capital city of Roman Macedonia. The church was established during Paul’s second missionary journey after their departure from Philippi.

For three Sabbaths, Paul preached in the. TIME AND PLACE OF WRITING: First Thessalonians is considered one of Paul's earliest epistles, if not the first. From the letter itself (), and the record of Paul's travels in Acts (Ac ), it appears that Paul wrote this letter soon after arriving in Corinth on his second journey.

The first Letter of Paul to the Thessalonians was likely written by St. Paul from Corinth about 50 CE. However, the second letter is possibly deuter-Pauline in origin, though this is debated.

Second Thessalonians is obviously an imitation of the style of First Thessalonians but. 2. Pauline authorship is asserted in a customary manner at the opening of the epistle (2 Thessalonians ) 3. While it is true that Silvanus and Timothy are included in the salutation, and that Paul does use the first person plural in the letter (,4,11; ; ,2,4,6,7,8,9,10,11), he also uses the first person singular (; ).

Fergusson's work is a reprint of the ed. published by T. Ward, London, under title: A brief exposition of the Epistles of Paul to the Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Thessalonians. The ed. was a compilation and reprint of three separate works originally published, The different treatment of the subject of the second coming of Christ, the different emotional tone, and the different relationships between Paul and the church presupposed in the First and Second Epistles have been among the causes which have led to repeated questionings of the Pauline authorship of 2 Thessalonians.

By the end of the first century there was no consensus on the author's identity. Clement of Rome, Barnabas, Paul the Apostle, and other names were later suggested Luke the Evangelist, Apollos, or his teacher Priscilla as possible authors. In the 3rd century, Origen wrote of the letter, In the epistle entitled To The Hebrews the diction does not exhibit the characteristic.

Second Thessalonians is the ninth of Paul’s letters. Of the 27 New Testament books, Paul wrote Nine of these book are letters to local churches (like the one in Thessalonica). Paul needed to address the three troubles the church in Thessalonica faced: Persecution from outside.

Paul puts the church’s situation in context.Author and Time of Writing The second epistle to the Thessalonians begins with almost the same wording as the first epistle. Timothy and Silas/Silvanus who were the apostle's companions on his second missionary journey (51 to 54 AC) were with him now also.
