1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

Tim Douglass, November 17, 2019
Part of the 1 Thessalonians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

This section is probably the best known and most quoted part of 1 Thessalonians. It is also one that presents some of the biggest challenges for us to really understand. The return of Jesus is a matter of great interest among believers, so it isn’t surprising that we like to key in on verses that talk about it. At the same time we need to remember that Paul’s primary purpose in writing this wasn’t to give a definitive description of the Rapture, but to encourage believers who didn’t understand the power of God to raise the dead.
