Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ” (v.1) St. Paul does not have a standard introduction for all his epistles, but he writes a different one that suits each church.

God as Father From his Gospel we learn a good deal about the Father and, indeed, it is to John more than anyone else that Christians owe their habit of referring to God simply as "the Father." John uses the word "father" times (which is more than twice as often as anyone else; Matthew has it 64 times, Paul 63).
A Complete List of the Apostle Paul’s Prayers in the Bible One way that each of us can improve the quality of our praying is to model our prayers after a mature believer. This is valuable advice to heed well in a church setting and also in our personal Bible reading. It is an honor to announce our partnership with a large host of students* of Concordia Theological Seminary – Fort Wayne to publish Apostolic Agenda: The Epistles of the Holy Apostle Paul to Titus and translation, which is the first full-length work of Friedrich Balduin available in English, was commissioned and funded by these students as their class gift in appreciation.

Grace. Paul more than any of the other apostle’s letters kept front and center that salvation was by faith alone. The whole book of Galatians focuses on the freedom Christ offers the believer, and the letter to the Romans contains deep theological rivers expositing the glory of salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ : Chara Donahue.
Thessalonians, First and Second, Theology of The epistles of Paul to the Thessalonians are forceful evidence that Paul was no mere armchair theologian.

Acts Acts ). The Pauline epistles are the fourteen books in the New Testament traditionally attributed to Paul the Apostle, although many dispute the anonymous Epistle to the Hebrews as being a Pauline epistle. There is nearly universal consensus in modern New Testament scholarship on a core group of authentic Pauline epistles whose authorship is rarely contested: Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Philippians, 1 Thessalonians, and Philemon.
Some few now deem it proved that Paul wrote to the South Galatians even before he wrote to the Thessalonians, cf. Zahn, "Einleitung in das Neue Testament" Leipzig, ), I, Occasion Having arrived at Athens, Paul at once set himself to convert the Jews. Baur (–), professor of theology at Tübingen in Germany, the first scholar to critique Acts and the Pauline Epistles, and founder of the Tübingen School of theology, argued that Paul, as the "Apostle to the Gentiles", was in violent opposition to the original 12 Apostles.

Modern biblical scholarship is divided on whether the epistle was written by Paul; many scholars reject its authenticity based on. Canonicity.—The two Epistles to the Thessalonians are included among the canonical books accepted by the Councils of the Vatican, of Trent, and of Florence, and are among the homologoumena of all early lists of canonical New-Testament Scriptures; for instance, to mention only such early lists as accord with the received canon of Trent, these.
