Lectures on the Epistles of Paul to the Thessalonians (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Lectures on the Epistles of Paul to the Thessalonians Thessalonica, now Saloniki, appears to have been, from the earliest period of its history, a place of inter est and importance. Situated on the great thoroughfare of empire1 that connected Rome with her eastern dependencies, and at the north-western head of the jegean. Or Grecian Archipelago, it soon acquired, what it has ever since retained, high rank as a commercial emporium. In the apostolic age it flourished as the acknowledged metropolis of the province of Macedonia and it is said to be even now the second city of European Turkey, having a population of some 7 inhabitants, of whom nearly one half are Jews. It is not at all strange, therefore, that in the 'manifold wis dom of God, ' which so directly guided and controlled the first planting of the Church in the wilds of heathen ism, Thessalonica should have been selected as one of the primary centres of Christianity.
