2nd Thessalonians
—Five topics in Paul’s letter

2Thess This is a verse by verse study of Paul’s second letter to the Thessalonians. The letter is divided into five topical sections.

arrow Seven Goals in Grace (2Thessalonians 1:1-5,11-12)An inspirational lesson in 2nd Thessalonians chapter 1, joining the first five verses with the last last two.

arrow Seven Fears in Wrath (2Thessalonians 1:6-10)Now we look at the flip side. Paul is very aware that, as well as the grace and mercy of God, there is the wrath and retribution of God.

arrow The Antichrist (2Thessalonians 2:1-12)These verses describe the Antichrist. We note several characteristics.

arrow Called and Chosen (2Thessalonians 2:12-3:5)Paul mentions seven very special blessings which make those who have come to God very special people.

arrow Christian Intolerance (2Thessalonians 3:6-18)This passage reminds us that Christianity is a religion with rules and discipline. It has a stern and intolerant side to it.
