Hypocrisy Then Jew or Gentile, ‘Do You Know Jesus?’ Review Paul’s wrote to the church in Rome to instruct them in the faith as no Apostle done as none had visited there.

He also desired to deposit a compendium of theological truth and the capital city of the empire was the natural place to do so”…

2 Thessalonians 1:11

2 Thessalonians 1:1-12

Introduction Most believe 2 Thessalonians was written months or a year+ after 1 Thessalonians. The question is why and with what purpose? While 2 Thessalonians is only three chapters long, each chapter is deep in material and each chapter stands alone. So let’s take a look at the video from Bible Project on all three chapters, but beware of an error therein where it speaks of a teaching from Mark 13 which would not be written for another 6-12 years.…

By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” So how are we to love…
