I. Greetings (1:1,2)

v. 1
"Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
v. 2
"Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ."


The three missionaries, who had first brought the gospel to Thessalonica and established the church in that city, now address the ecclesia a second time, in terms almost identical with the greeting of their first letter (1Th 1:1, notes).

Paul is still in Corinth. Apparently, only a few months have elapsed since he had sent his first letter to the brethren at Thessalonica.
