The Book Of 1 Thessalonians

Welcome To The Study Of The Letter Of 1 Thessalonians

1 Thessalonians, Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians answers a lot of questions which most people today and the Christians back then were asking concerning the return of Jesus. One of the questions asked within the letter to which Paul responds to is, how should we live in the meantime?

In every single chapter, there is some mention of the Lord’s return, along with some very practical applications about how we should live until that time.

Chapter By Chapter

As we go through this study I really want to encourage you to enjoy it and be uplifted by it as you go through each chapter and verse. Take note of the theme of the letters where Paul reminds them to continue to live holy lives for God whilst they await the arrival of Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 1

It’s clear from 1 Thessalonians 1 that the church in Thessalonica was setting the example for other churches around them and beyond.

As we enter 1 Thessalonian 2:1-12 we’re going to see another example worth following, his name is the apostle Paul. 1 Thessalonians 2

There is no doubt the apostles were genuinely concerned for the saints at Thessalonica.

They needed to know how the saints were doing and they realised that just knowing this was better than the help that Paul would have gained from those he was sending. 1 Thessalonians 3

After concluding their prayers for the Thessalonians which included Paul’s desire to see them again and that they be established blameless in their living, Paul now goes ahead to instruct them on how to live a live which pleases God.

He also clears up any misunderstanding about the Lord’s return. 1 Thessalonians 4

Paul has just finished telling the saints what will happen to those who aren’t ready for the Lord’s Day and how they won’t escape destruction, in these verses he is making a contrast and reminding them that they must live as children of light because they do not belong in the darkness. 1 Thessalonians 5


"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."

Hebrews 12:2
