It’s true that much has changed since Jesus walked on earth. Our technology is drastically more advanced, our science and medicine more sophisticated, and our news and culture more international in reach. Our problems, issues, and discussions about morality reflect these advances and changes. Yet the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians offers advice for the Christian life, addressing topics and ethical concerns quite similar to issues we’re discussing today. In this Groundwork series, we examine Paul’s teaching in the first letter to the Thessalonians and discuss how we can take the heart of his teaching and apply it to how we too live out our faith in our own present-day circumstances.
