Survey of the Bible Series: In this series, we take an in-depth look at each book of the Bible in order to better understand the purpose and meaning of the Scripture.

2 Thessalonians- Paul wrote 2 Thessalonians from Corinth. The topics that Paul addresses in the second epistle emerged from situations he alluded to in the first epistle. 

Paul’s 2nd epistle contains evidence that Paul had recently heard news about current conditions in the Thessalonian church. Most of this information came to him from Timothy most likely – the person who had carried 1 Thessalonians to its recipients and had returned to Paul at Corinth.

Some of the news was good. The majority of the Thessalonians were continuing to grow and to remain faithful to Christ in spite of persecution. Some of the news was not so good. False teaching concerning the day of the Lord had entered the church and was causing confusion and leading some of the Christians to quit their jobs in expectation of the Lord's return (3:6-15).

Three purposes are evident from the contents of the epistle. First, Paul wrote to encourage the Thessalonian believers to continue to persevere in the face of continuing persecution (1:3-10). Second, he wanted to clarify events preceding the day of the Lord in order to refute the false teaching that the day of the Lord had already come upon them (2:1-12). Finally, he instructed the church how to deal with lazy Christians in their midst (3:6-15).
