In this episode of Dr. Bill Creasy's Logos Bible Studies series, listeners will be transported to Thessalonika, Greece. The year is A.D. 50, the time when the apostle Paul founded his church there. Creasy questions and ponders the words of Paul, discerning his true messages of love and faith. It is no wonder Creasy is incredibly popular both as a spiritual leader and as a lecturer and writer on the Bible as Literature. His warmth and willingness to share all that he knows comes across strongly in this compelling close-reading of the Bible.
Paul visited Thessalonica early in his second missionary journey, A.D. 50-52. In Paul’s day, Thessalonica was the second largest city in Greece/Macedonia, trailing only Athens in size. Amazingly, Paul spends only “three Sabbath days” here before he has to leave town - or be lynched! Yet within six months the church in Thessalonica has become known all over the Roman world for its extraordinary faith. As a church born in the flames of persecution, the church at Thessalonica has several very important questions to ask Paul - especially about the Lord’s return - and Paul addresses these questions in 1 Thessalonians. Enjoy the rich discussion Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy brings to this book as he emphasizes Paul’s words of faith, hope, and love.
