2 Thessalonians Overview
The Second Epistle to the Thessalonians, regularly alluded to as Second Thessalonians (US) or Two Thessalonians (UK)(and composed 2 Thessalonians).
As it starts, “Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the congregation of the Thessalonians” and finishes, “I, Paul, compose this welcome in my own hand, which is the recognizing mark in all my letters.”
The structures of the two letters (to which Best alludes) incorporate opening welcome (1 Thess. 1:1, 2 Thess. 1:1–2) and shutting beatitudes (1 Thess. 5:28, 2 Thess. 3:16d-18) which outline two, adjusting, segments (AA’).
In 2 Thessalonians these start with comparative progressions of nine Greek words, at 1:3 and 2:13. The opening letter segment (1:3–2:12) itself contains two parts, 1:3–12 (where the initial piece, An, is 1:3–5; the primary advancement, B, is 1:6–10; and the paralleling and closing improvement, B’, is 1:11–12) and 2:1–12 (with pieces: A 2:1–4, B 2:5–7, B’ 2:8–12).
The second, adjusting, letter segment (2:13–3:16c) likewise contains two parts: 2:13–3:5 (with pieces: A 2:13–14, B 2:15–17, B’ 3:1–5) and 3:6-16c (with pieces: A 3:6–9, B 3:10–12, B’ 3:13-16c). Of the twelve pieces in 2 Thessalonians seven start with “sibling” presentations. Of the eighteen pieces in 1 Thessalonians fourteen start with “sibling” presentations. In both letters, the segments adjust in size and center, and in many subtle elements. In 2 Thessalonians, in 2:5 and 3:10, for instance, there is an auxiliary adjust of the utilization of ‘when I was with you…’ and ‘when we were with you.
