2 Thessalonians 2 Commentary

Please choose a passage:

2 Thessalonians 2:1-5

Paul counters false teaching that has confused the Thessalonians, namely that the Day of the Lord had come already and that they had missed Jesus’s return.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-12

For now, something holds the antichrist back from rising to power. This superior power that restrains him will eventually be removed from the earth and the antichrist will take over the world.

2 Thessalonians 2:13-17

The Thessalonians should remember God’s love for them, how He chose them to be saved from sin and death, and to become Christlike through obedience and faith. As believers in Christ, they are His children, and brothers of Paul.
