As we continue from our previous episode where we observed how Paul's depiction of Jesus Christ upstaged the theology of the Roman emperor, this episode notes that 1 Thessalonians makes a major point about Jesus' lordship in opposition to the lordship of Caesar. The Christian gospel opposed the gospel of Caesar and Paul demanded his converts turn away from participation in the imperial cult in favor of monotheism and messianism.
