Led by Ron Petri. James and 1 & 2 Timothy will be studied April-June. 1 & 2 Thessalonians will be studied June-August.
James focus is on how the Christian faith is to be lived out on a day-to-day basis. The Sermon on the Mount underlies most of this letter.
1 Timothy discusses the character of people who ought to be in leadership. 2 Timothy is considered the last letter written by Paul and is personal in tone.
The first letter to the Thessalonian church is probably Paul's earliest surviving letter and is generally dated around 51 A.D. The letter was intended to encourage the Christian growth of new believers in the Thessalonian church and to settle questions they had. Paul expresses his relief and joy at the good progress the new converts are making despite their lack of teaching. He also speaks of the Lord's coming as being sudden and unexpected.
2 Thessalonians was probably written only a few weeks or months after 1 Thessalonians, in about 52 A.D. Paul writes (1) to encourage persecuted believers, (2) to correct a misunderstanding concerning the Lord's return and (3) to exhort the Thessalonians to be steadfast and to work for a living.
