The Letters to the Thessalonians

W.B. Eerdmans Pub., 2002 - 400 pagina's
In This Commentary Gene Green reads Paul's two letters to the Thessalonians in light of the canon of Scripture and of new knowledge about the first-century world of Thessalonica. This fruitful approach helps illuminate the impact of the gospel on its original readers and, in turn, shows how potent a force it can be for the church and society today. The book begins with an in-depth study of the Thessalonians themselves -- their history, land, socioeconomic conditions, and religious environment. This fascinating discussion gives the necessary context for fully appreciating the circumstances surrounding the founding of they city's first church and the subsequent struggles of the Thessalonian believers to live out their Christian faith.

Gebruikersrecensie  - ForHisGlory -

I have only read a small section so far of this commentary, but so far it is definitely worth purchasing. The writing is very helpful, being insightful, clear, and deep enough. Out of the series of commentaries I have been working through for 1 Thessalonians, this has been one of the best. Volledige review lezen
