Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary on the Bible

2 Thessalonians Overview

 

 


AN

EXPOSITION,

W I T H P R A C T I C A L O B S E R V A T I O N S,

OF THE SECOND EPISTLE OF ST. PAUL TO THE

T H E S S A L O N I A N S.

THIS Second Epistle was written soon after the former, and seems to have been designed to prevent a mistake, which might arise from some passages in the former epistle, concerning the second coming of Christ, as if it were near at hand. The apostle in this epistle is careful to prevent any wrong use which some among them might make of those expressions of his that were agreeable to the dialect of the prophets of the Old Testament, and informs them that there were many intermediate counsels yet to be fulfilled before that day of the Lord should come, though, because it is sure, he had spoken of it as near. There are other things that he writes about for their consolation under sufferings, and exhortation and direction in duty.
