Thessalonians - Wednesday Service - 7 PM

  • The church in Thessalonica was conceived in conflict and born into crisis. After just three weeks of ministry, Paul was quietly slipped out of town to avoid a mob, leaving a congregation of new believers to face acrimony and opposition. Paul quickly sent Timothy to them, then two letters - the First and Second Letter to the Thessalonians. These letters address the gospel concerns of the young church, but also delve into the details of the Last Days to a remarkable extent. In the midst of external conflict, this church saw endured one but two major false teachings concerning eschatology in the first months of its existence! Paul answers both, and in so doing gives us a basis for a sound eschatology. Of even greater concern to the Apostle is the life of the church in the midst of persecution.
