1 Thessalonians 1:1

1 Paul and aSilvanus and bTimothy to the 1cchurch of the 2Thessalonians in 3God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: dGrace to you and peace.


12 Thessalonica was a city of the Roman Empire, in the province of Macedonia, which was north of the province of Achaia. It was the next city the apostle Paul and his co-worker Silvanus visited after Philippi, after the Macedonian call he received on his second ministry journey (Acts 16:9-12; 17:1-4). The apostle stayed and worked in Thessalonica for only a short time, probably less than one month (Acts 17:2).
