The Story So Far

Can a letter written in the first century provide encouragement and direction for our modern lives? Alistair Begg shows us how by summarizing the themes and context of Paul's first epistle to the Thessalonians. Paul's tender letter emphasizes the importance of the local church and the Gospel, and provides important instruction for those exercising or submitting to church leadership—issues that shape believers’ lives in every time and place.


1Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy,

To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:

Grace to you and peace.
