THE BOOKS OF 1 & 2 THESSALONIANS were written by the apostle Paul to the church at Thessalonica. It was a young church experiencing great persecution. The Thessalonian Christians needed to mature in their faith and gain correct understanding concerning Christ’s second coming. Even today there is much speculation about Christ’s return, but no one knows the exact date or time of this event. Thus believers should live moral and holy lives, ever watchful of Christ’s coming–not neglecting daily responsibilities but always working and living to please the Lord.
