Dig into Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians with this free online course from DTS

Have you felt stressed, anxious, or dismayed this year? Have the circumstances of the year shifted your priorities?

The early church in Thessalonica was surrounded by hostility—and a misunderstanding was causing them anxiety. In the Letters of 1 and 2 Thessalonians, Paul encouraged the church in their priorities: standing firm in the gospel and living in a way that earned the respect of those outside the faith. He wrote to them about the Lord’s Second Coming and told them to continue to share the good news of Jesus Christ as they anticipated Christ’s return.

Dallas Theological Seminary invites you to explore 1 and 2 Thessalonians in this new free online course. Throughout the five sessions of the course, you will study Paul’s teachings about the return of Christ, the rapture, and the resurrection of believers. You will focus on the key verse—1 Thessalonians 5:23: “May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Dr. Mark Yarbrough, president of DTS and professor in the Bible Exposition department at the Seminary, teaches this course. You will be challenged and encouraged as you study with him the balance Paul wanted the Thessalonians to pursue: a joyous, energetic, and active anticipation of the Lord’s peace that is coming.
