In yesterday’s reading, we heard of the people who returned after the exile. Then, starting with the genealogy of King Saul, we jumped to the story of how he died. This prepares us for the stories about King David.
Our highlighted verse today:
10The name of the LORD is a strong fortress;
the godly run to him and are safe.
Chapter 1 ended with Paul saying what other people were saying about the Thessalonians:
“how you are looking forward to the coming of God’s Son from heaven—Jesus, whom God raised from the dead. He is the one who has rescued us from the terrors of the coming judgment.”
