by three main developments. 1. The persecution of the Christians there had grown worse and was leaving some at the point of despair.

2. A letter and/or other representations falsely claiming to be from Paul were on the verge of convincing the Christians there that the end-time was

imminent. 3. The nearness of Christ's return was being misused as a basis for shirking vocational responsibility.

the Lord" came and thus to prove false the claims that the "day" had already arrived (2:1-12) PAUL'S PURPOSE: 2 Thessalonians
