1 and 2 Thessalonians [9780310518716]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The study of Paul's Thessalonian letters is enjoying fresh interest today. These texts are considered by many to be amongst the earliest extant Christian documents. They are included in conversations about early Jewish and Christian apocalypticism. New insights are coming from examination of the religious, socio-cultural, and political contexts of Roman Thessalonica. And, looking back, these letters have played an important role in the development of Christian eschatology. This volumes serves as an up-to-date guide to these academic discussions and debates and much more.

This volume on 1 and 2 Thessalonians in the Zondervan Critical Introductions to the New Testament series offers a volume-length engagement with subjects that normally only receive short treatments in biblical commentaries or in New Testament Introductions. This volume addresses:

  • Authorship
  • Date
  • Audience
  • Socio-Historical Context
  • Genre
  • Purpose
  • Integrity
  • Textual History
  • Greek Style
  • Structure
  • Argument
  • Other Critical Issues
  • Main Interpretive Issues
  • Reception into the Canon
  • Selected History of Interpretation
  • Bibliography
