Overview

Fascination with the end times is not just a recent phenomenon.

The young church at Thessalonica, having taken root during Paul's brief stay there, pondered when the end might come as well. Paul, in order to instruct them more fully, wrote them two letters, which taken together expound the "already-and-not-yet" character of the end times. His instruction and counsel can serve us well today.

Throughout this commentary, G. K. Beale explains what each letter meant to its original hearers and its application for us today.
