Opposing Jewish leaders have caused a riot and driven the church-planting team out of town.
Though the Thessalonian believers were under severe persecution, this was not the Day of the Lord. The Day of the Lord will be marked by the emergence of the man of lawlessness. He will oppose God and delude the world into following him instead of God. Meanwhile the Thessalonians are to continue to stand firm in the faith, live a testimony to the faith, and not grow weary of doing good. Paul commended these believers for their growing and strong faith in God and love toward believers, all the while living under severe persecution because of their faith. But Paul also corrected some misunderstandings about the return of the Lord in glory and judgment—the Day of the Lord. He reminded them that the Lord would not come before the man of lawlessness set himself up as God in the temple.
