Overview
Gleans fresh insight from reading Paul's text in the light of rhetorical concerns and patterns, early Jewish theology, and the 1st century historical situation in Macedonia.

Publishers Description
1 & 2 Thessalonians stand as some of the very earliest Christian documents, and yet they appear quite late in Paul's missionary career, giving them a unique context well worth exploring.

In this first full-scale socio-rhetorical commentary on 1 & 2 Thessalonians, Ben Witherington gleans fresh insight from reading Paul's text in the light of rhetorical concerns and patterns, early Jewish theology and the first-century historical situation in Macedonia. As with any socio-rhetorical commentary, the unique approach helps readers to unearth insights that would otherwise remain hidden using only form criticism, epistolary categories and traditional criticism. Witherington's work also features a new, clear translation of the Greek text and a thorough bibliography that pays special attention to socio-rhetorical concerns. Additionally, he details Thessalonica's place as the "Metropolis" of Macedonia, and carefully unpacks the social situation of Paul and his recipients.

Scholars will cherish the careful analysis and rhetorical insights, while Witherington's clear prose and sensitivity to Paul's ideas makes "1 & 2 Thessalonians" ideal for all who desire a useful, readable commentary on this important early manuscript.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A heavily researched, scholarly, in-depth examination  Mar 4, 2007
Written by Ben Witherington III (Professor of New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary), 1 and 2 Thessalonians: A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary is a full-scale discussion of Paul's two letters to the Thessalonians, applying a socio-rhetorical approach specifically to examine aspects that might remain hidden using only form criticism, epistolary categories, or traditional criticism. Subjects given an extra-close study include "Holy Wedlock and Unholy Alliances", "A Christian Manual on Manual Labor", "Exercising Restraint: Apocalyptic Answers to Difficult Questions", and more. A heavily researched, scholarly, in-depth examination written for intermediate to advanced students and fellow professors of the New Testament, highly recommended for its thoroughly reasoned interpretations keen attention to detail.
 
Thessalonians ... Witherington style  Feb 11, 2007
Ben Witherington appears to be a unique combination of an updated and expert ancient linguist, master of the Bible as we know it + hundreds of Gnostic and ancient commentaries, and a "what were they thinking" inquisitiveness that transports the time and place of Paul's world into current focus.

His Thessalonians I & II is consistent with his other `graduate level' books of the Bible deep dives. The pastoral overtones and eschatological response to a worried congregation are well narrated.

Paul's Thessalonians has been dangerously controversial when taken out of context. Witherington does a masterful job putting context back in the book.

Stick with it. It's good work.
