People's Bible Notes for 1 Thessalonians 1:2


1Th 1:2 We. The plural, perhaps, is used because Silas and Timothy were joined in the greeting, but the Epistle is Paul's, not the joint work of three persons. Give thanksto God. Almost all Paul's letters begin with thanksgiving.

Discussion for 1 Thessalonians 1

    1 Thessalonians 1:5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. It was very important for the Gentile Church of Thessalonians to follow the gospel that Paul preach and wrote. They also follow Paul.

    Should read At his birth. That's when King Herodotus killed all the Babies 2yrs old and under.

    Irene:Wrath is not Tribulation.Tribulation is not Wrath.Wrath is for nonbelievers,the lost,the dead. Tribulation comes to The Believers Washed by The Blood of The Lamb. Persecution and Tribulation started before His Birth and Keeps getting Worse until The Great Tribulation, Worse than The Holocaust. We must through much Tribulation enter The Kingdom of God.

    How could anyone read JUST v. 10 - and think Christians are going thru the tribulation. Yes, Christians will HAVE tribulation in this life - just as our example Jesus did. But that's mild compared with the WRATH to come on the unbelievers for - SEVEN YEARS. Those who claim otherwise seem to WANT to go through it. I wouldn't even mention the trib. if I th'ot I was going through it!!
