126: The Early Christian View of God in 1 Thessalonians

June 25, 2020

In what ways did early Christianity depict God and Christ in terms of Jewish monotheism? Some scholars have argued that, in various ways, the distinction between God and Jesus were blurred by early Christians, especially Paul. This episode looks at 1 Thessalonians, the early document in the New Testament, to determine how Paul depicted the risen Jesus in relation to the monotheistic God of Judaism. 1 Thessalonians repeatedly insists that the Father is the true God and that Jesus is our Lord, through whom God actively works.
