Apostle Paul’s Epistles ‘to the Thessalonians’


    The value of two Letters of Apostle Paul ‘Thessalonians’ for the study of the Christian faith is huge, as they constitute the most ancient texts of the entire New Testament.

    The Epistles are written with emotionality and affection to the Thessalonians, expressing their love feelings. The Apostle Paul reminds the first Christians of Thessaloniki God’s demand for moral purity and explains the connection of the Resurrection of Christ with the resurrection of the departed Christians, by clarifying that the “Day of the Lord” will not come so early, as the Thessalonians originally thought, suggesting them continuous vigilance. The Apostle Paul also characterized the Thessalonians ‘exemplar’ for all Christians of Greece.
