The end times (eschatology) intrigued the early church as much as it does today’s church.
The new church at Thessalonica, which Paul planted during his short time there, also wondered when the end might be. Paul composed two letters for them, so that they might have a fuller knowledge of the “last things.” Taken in tandem, they explain the “already-and-not-yet” nature of the “age to come.” Paul’s explanation and advice remains relevant for today’s church as well.
G.K. Beale walks us through what these letters meant to their first audience and how we can apply them to our lives.
