First Thessalonians:

This book is a letter from Paul, Silas, and Timothy to the Church at Thessalonica (Greece), instructing them on the return of Jesus:

  1. "Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands..." (1 Thessalonians 4:11)
  2. "We believe that Jesus died and rose again (i.e., came back to life) and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep with Him (i.e, those Christians who have died)." (1 Thessalonians 4:14)
  3. "...the dead in Christ (i.e., dead Christians) will rise first...After that, we who are still alive...will be caught up the clouds to meet the Lord in the air...will be with the Lord forever." (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
  4. "Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night." (1 Thessalonians 5:1-2)
  5. "...sons of the light and sons of the not belong to the night or to the darkness." (1 Thessalonians 5:5)
  6. "...He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep (i.e, alive or dead), we may live together with Him." (1 Thessalonians 5:10)
