Item description for Abingdon New Testament Commentary - 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians (Abingdon New Testament Commentaries) by Victor Paul Furnish...

Overview
Explores the historical and theological value of the letters to the Thessalonians. Suggests reading 1 Thessalonians as fully as possible on its own terms, without presupposing or imposing themes or positions that are explicit only in letters of a later date Interprets 2 Thessalonians as the work of an anonymous Paulinist writing several decades after Paul's death Addresses the two letters in terms of what they show about the reception and interpretation of Paul in the late first-century church

Publishers Description
Accepting the widespread view that 1 Thessalonians is the earliest surviving Pauline letter, Furnish commends reading it as fully as possible on its own terms, without presupposing or imposing themes or positions that are explicit only in letters of a later date. While he agrees with commentators who note this letter's pastoral aims and character, he is more convinced than some that it also exhibits a rich and coherent theological point of view. Furnish interprets 2 Thessalonians as the work of an anonymous Paulinist writing several decades after the apostle's death. He regards this letter, too, as historically and theologically valuable, although less for what it discloses about Paul's ministry and thought than for what it shows about the reception and interpretation of Paul in the late first-century church.
