Product Description

How relevant is 1&2 Thessalonians for Christians today? These are letters written over 2,000 years ago and which are among Paul's earliest writings--can they be relevant? In this thorough, yet easy-to-read commentary Stanley Jebb reveals their timeless pastoral and practical application. We see Paul's deep concern for believers and find important instructions about how we should live--instructions which are as relevant today as they were when they first written. We also learn about the events that will take place at the second coming of Jesus Christ. Read this book and discover just how applicable these letters are to your church and to your daily life.

    Dedicated students of the Bible who already have Commentaries on their bookshelves may well wonder what new observations a new title like this will offer. Perhaps the best response is that good teaching is not always introducing new things but reinforcing knowledge and understanding.

    The two Epistles to the Thessalonians occupy a unique place in the Biblical canon as it may well be the Apostle Paul's first inspired Letter. The amazing amount of biblical teaching that the apostle was able to fit into his short stay at Thessalonica is clearly indicated by the many doctrines he discusses as already familiar to the Thessalonians.

    Part of DayOne Publications ‘Exploring the Bible' series, this is both a practical and pastoral title and the introductory remarks greatly acknowledge the growth of a Christian mind through good teaching which is faithful to the text, to the overall theology of scripture and which is wisely and relevantly applied to the lives of Christians in contemporary society. This commentary marries the sound theology, challenging ethics and fruitful pastoring that Paul set out to record in his Epistles and throughout gives the wise counsel, instruction and encouragement that believers needed then and that we need more urgently today.

    This is a well presented Commentary and treatment of the two Epistles. While Chapters of the Epistles are commented on individually, the writer understands the demands of his readers by highlighting the themes that Paul is writing on specifically in each instance. This is skilfully done with excellent applications to current church life, ministry and outreach activities. This is a practical book which readers will be gripped by. It is of a reasonable length, encourages reading and would be a useful addition to a church or personal library. The Notes at the end of the Chapters are interesting and will be for many, a spur to wider reading.

    The book has excellent Appendices also and one of these, ‘The Theme of Deception in the New Testament' is an interesting addition, given its scope and interest today. There is a lot to be gained from this book and as an accessible and practical commentary deserves wide reading. From a personal point of view, the second chapter of this book ‘The Model Witness' talking of 1 Thessalonians 2, is as clear, vibrant and urgent an exposition of scripture that you will read anywhere. Very rarely would I seek out a book to commend one chapter highly. If I had to do so, this would be such a book.
