Description

The Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, An Introduction to 1 and 2 Thessalonians: Audio Lectures include high quality live-recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources.

The study of Paul's Thessalonian letters is enjoying fresh interest today. These texts are considered by many to be amongst the earliest extant Christian documents. They are included in conversations about early Jewish and Christian apocalypticism. New insights are coming from examination of the religious, socio-cultural, and political contexts of Roman Thessalonica. And, looking back, these letters have played an important role in the development of Christian eschatology. An Introduction to 1 and 2 Thessalonians: Audio Lectures, taught by Nijay Gupta, serves as an up-to-date guide to these discussions and much more.

An Introduction to 1 and 2 Thessalonians: Audio Lectures parallels 1 and 2 Thessalonians in the Zondervan Critical Introductions to the New Testament series, addresses:
