During his second missionary journey, Paul visited Thessalonica, in Greece. And while some people were open to the Gospel, others were not. And Paul had to leave in a hurry, wondering if God’s Word would take hold.
In this verse-by-verse study, we’ll read of Paul’s joy when he first received word of the flourishing community of believers in Thessalonica. We’ll also hear his encouragement to stand strong against those who deny the Gospel and be reminded that God is always faithful to those who stand with Him.
In this study of 1 Thessalonians, we'll cover in detail all 5 chapters of Paul’s letter.
