The Book of 1 Thessalonians
1 Thessalonians is one of Paul's Epistles. Epistles are letters Paul wrote to Christians in the early churches.
|The books of 1 and 2 Thessalonians were written
to the church in the city of Thessalonki in Greece.
Paul founded the church in Thessalonki, but he had trouble there and had to leave in a hurry. He sent his helper, Timothy, back a few months later to check on the church. Timothy came back with a good report. Then, Paul wrote his first letter to the Christians in Thessalonki.
Paul's first letter to the Thessalonians was to encourage them
and to help them grow as Christians. Paul writes to them about
the time when Jesus will come back to earth. He tells them
about the Rapture when the Christians on earth and the Christians
who have already died will be taken up to heaven.
