Acts 17:1‑9,11,13• 1Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews:

3Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.

7Whom Jason hath received: and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.
8And they troubled the people and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things.
9And when they had taken security of Jason, and of the other, they let them go.
11These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
13But when the Jews of Thessalonica had knowledge that the word of God was preached of Paul at Berea, they came thither also, and stirred up the people.

 These two epistles are the first that Paul wrote, unless we except that to the Galatians, the date of which is uncertain. Already long occupied with the work, it is only when this work was considerably advanced that in watching over it he guards it by means of his writings. (1 THESSALONIANS by J.N. Darby)
 The Christian character is unfolded to our eyes with all its motives and its joys, and that in connection with the testimony of God and the hope which is our strength in bearing it. (1 THESSALONIANS by J.N. Darby)
 The doctrine of the coming of Christ, which universally accompanies the work of the Spirit that attaches our hearts to Him in the first spring of a new life, is specially presented to us in these two epistles. And it is not merely formally taught as a doctrine; it is linked with every spiritual relationship of our souls, it is displayed in all the circumstances of the Christian’s life. (1 THESSALONIANS by J.N. Darby)
 With the affection of little children the Thessalonians knew the Father….it is our introduction into the unmingled enjoyment of the light and of the divine affections displayed in the character of the Father. (1 Thessalonians 1 by J.N. Darby)
 The first epistle supplied that which sprang from mere ignorance, the latter corrected what was unequivocally false and mischievous. In the two epistles the presence or coming of the Lord is carefully distinguished from the day of the Lord, their true characters set out distinctly, and their due relation to one another explained. (On 1 Thessalonians 1 by W. Kelly)
 In Thessalonians we have the freshness of the fountain near to its source; the energy of the first spring of life in the believer’s soul, presenting all the beauty and purity and vigor of its first verdure under the influence of the sun that had risen upon them and made the sap of life rise, the first manifestations of which had not been deteriorated by contact with the world or by an enfeebled view of invisible things. (1 Thessalonians 5 by J.N. Darby)
 What can harmonize so well with newborn saints, just delivered from the gods many and the lords many of heathenism, and brought into the conscious relationship of babes that know the Father? (On 1 Thessalonians 1 by W. Kelly)

peace ^: "from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ." Origen expressly noted the words as not read in his day, though they are supported by the Sinaitic, Alexandrian, and many other good MSS and versions etc. B F G and the best versions reject the words. (Bible Treasury 14:15)
