THE SECOND LETTER OF PAUL TO THE THESSALONIANS

2 THESSALONIANS

 

Overview:

This letter (as well as 1 Thessalonians, its predecessor) is named after the Macedonian city of Thessalonica, which had been founded ca. 315 BC by Cassander, who named it after his wife Thessalonica, daughter of Philip II and sister of Alexander the Great. This letter may be studied in six parts:

(1) Salutation (1:1-2)
(2) Statement of Thanksgiving (1:3-12),
(3) the Day of the Lord (2:1-17,
(4) Prayer and Prayer Requests (3:1-5),
(5) Church Discipline (3:6-15), and
(6) a Conclusion (3:16-18).

Authorship:

Christian tradition affirms this letter's claims of having been authored by the Apostle Paul (1:1), most likely from Corinth after Timothy had returned from a visit to the Thessalonian congregation.

Composition Date:

The probable date for this letter is a few months after the Apostle Pal wrote 1 Thessalonians; i.e., sometime during the fall of 50 AD to the late fall of 51 AD.

Messianic Theme:

The Return of the Messiah
