2nd Thessalonians

Thank you for clicking on our page for the Pauline epistle which is called 2nd Thessalonians, the letter is authored by the apostle Paul to the church at Thessalonica. Paul founded this church on his second missionary journey with Silas, Timothy and Luke. He was there a short time and left due to the increasing trouble in the area, but he left behind a young and vibrant church. Paul writes this letter due to some questions that have come up from this young church while Paul was based in Corinth. This is just one epistle and for other bible studies on other epistles please see our main epistle. page.

The letter, or epistle is a very short one and is a follow up to the 1st letter to the Thessalonians said to have been written around 52 AD and it does have some rich doctrine to this church in modern day Europe. John MacArthur is quoted to say of 2nd Thessalonians “The emphasis is on how to maintain a church with an effective testimony in proper response to sound eschatology and obedience to the truth.”

Paul also corrects doctrine regarding the second coming of Christ and makes the case that Christ has still to come again. The underlying tone of the letter is exhortation in sound doctrine and keeping the tenants of the faith.

Below is a list of bible studies in the book of 2nd Thessalonians.

Line by line studies
None

Topical studies
None

When the writers of the bible separated the books into chapters and verses to help indexing and finding verses, this book was split into 3 chapters, in many cases new chapters do not contain new thoughts and you will see bible studies cross over chapter lines.
