The Second Epistle to the Thessalonians

Frequent use of the phrase "in Christ" appears to be a Pauline characteristic; the book 2 Thessalonians does not use it at all, raising doubt that he wrote it.[1 p.63]

Commentary

1:1

It is appropriate for Silas to be listed as a joint author of this letter, because he had been a member of the group that visits Thessalonica in Acts 17:1.
