Summary of 2 Thessalonians

Date: 51-52 C.E. (If authentic), 80-90 C.E. (If anonymous)

Description: The second canonical letter to the Thessalonian community, scholars are divided on if this is an authentic letter from Paul or is otherwise anonymous. The letter speaks strongly to the attitudes of those in the community who were not working, perhaps because of expectations of the imminent return of Jesus.
