Train Wreck-1 Thessalonians Ch 2

1 Thessalonians Chp 2 Bible Study

1 Thessalonians Bible Study

Class continued with the 1 Thessalonians chapter 2 Bible study. What follows are my raw notes from that class as well as some other insights from various sources. I tend to read from the King James and teach from the NASB. When referring to the Greek words I am always in the KJV.

  1. “…having so fond an affection for you…” is not agape but an affection of an indeterminant type
  2. Hard work-Paul uses the term to be chargeable to or be a burden and he specifically means so that no one incurs an expense on their behalf.
  3. Holiness-one meaning for unblameably is righteous meaning in right-standing with God, not of Man.
    1. Recall how Paul intended and stated that he preached with the idea of pleasing God and not at all caring what Man thought of what he said.
  4. Encouraging
  5. “…worthy of God…” i.e. appropriately
    1. Glory-Greek words to mean apparent, dignity, honour from a root that means to think or to seem and to please.
    2. That we should walk in such a way as to think and appear to all to have dignity and honor and act in such a way as would please God.
  6. ?-How does one hear something as from Men differently from hearing something from God?
    1. Received-associate one’s self with
  7. Paul was driven out of Thessalonica by Jews who did not believe the Gospel. They had no tolerance for an opposing view point so attacked the messenger and drove him out rather than confront his ideas (See Acts 17:5-9) 
  8. Talking about the Jews who drove Paul et al out of Thessalonica
  9. “…might be saved…” Halley’s says this is Paul explaining those who don’t believe and repent being judged by Jesus.
    1. Greek Saved-Deliver, protect, heal, be made whole
  10. Wants to come back
  11. God prevented Paul twice from coming back though this time he is aware it is Satan doing it.
  12. This is the return of Christ verse for this chapter
    1. Greek Coming-Specifically advent, that it is coming and near at hand

Verse 14 Paul Driven Out

5  But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.

6  And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;

7  Whom Jason hath received: and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.
