1 and 2 Thessalonians Bible Study

In addition to using this blog as a way to post events for Mount Olive; I am also using this site as a resource for the adult bible study on 1 and 2 Thessalonians. I will post things on here throughout the class to help those who want to dig a little deeper into scripture. These resources will not be critical to the Sunday class. They are open to everyone, and they might be especially useful to those who would like to attend more than one Bible study on Sunday, but since everything happens at once, are forced to attend one or the other.

I will post links that are relevant to the text of 1 and 2 Thessalonians, as well as, links that are relevant to our discussion.

Here are a few places that I found helpful to introducing yourself to 1 and 2 Thessalonians:

http://www.enduringword.com/commentaries/5201.htm -Provides a solid introduction to the cast of Paul's missionary team in Thessalonica.

http://www.biblestudy.org/maps/pauls-secd-journey-map.html - This is a nice map of Paul's second missionary journey. Here you can follow his route to and from Thessalonica.

http://www.bibleplaces.com/thessalonica.htm -Archaeology is not my forte, but it's fun to look at pictures! This shows some of the remains of Thessalonica under modern day Thessaloniki in Greece.

Feel free to post any question or thoughts that you would like to share!
