BY REV. JAMES DENNEY, B.D.


To this city the Apostle Paul came, attended by
Silas and Timothy, in the course of his second
missionary journey. He had just left Philippi, dearest
to his heart of all his churches ; for there, more than
anywhere else, the sufferings of Christ had abounded
in him, and his consolations also had been abundant
in Christ. He came to Thessalonica with the marks
of the lictors' rods upon his body; but to him they
were the marks of Jesus ; not warnings to change his
path, but tokens that the Lord was taking him into
fellowship with Himself, and binding him more strictly
to His service.

I.THE CHURCH OF THE THESSALOIAS,"ow when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia,they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews : andPaul, as his custom was, went in unto them, and for three sabbathdays reasoned with them from the scriptures, opening and alleging,that it behoved the Christ to suffer, and to rise again from the dead ;and that this Jesus, whom, said he, I proclaim unto you, is the Christ.And some of them were persuaded, and consorted with Paul and Silas ;and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief womennot a few.

And when they found them not, they draggedJason and certain brethren before the rulers of the city, crying, Thesethat have turned the world upside down are come hither also ; whomJason hath received : and these all act contrary to the decrees of Caesar,saying that there is another king, one Jesus. And they troubled themultitude and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things. Andwhen they had taken security from Jason and the rest, they let themgo." — Acts xvii. 1-9 (R.V.).THE CHURCH OF THE THESSALOIAS."
