Thiselton © 2011 Anthony C. Thiselton. indd 23 9/4/2010 9:14:42 AM 24 1 Thessalonians 1:1–10 called attention to this fact, especially Ollrog (Paulus und seine Mitarbeiter), Bruce (The Pauline Circle), and Harrington (“Paul and Collaborative Ministry”). Paul omits any chosen authoritative title, standing alongside his readers or hearers in friendship. The writers modify the merely conventional greetingform, which is used in Greco-Roman literature, combining the traditional Hebrew greeting sha¯lo¯m (peace or well-being) with the traditional Greek greeting chairein changed to charis (grace).

Christian believers suffer abuse. Yet through the cross, Theodore asserts, accepting suffering and tribulation will bring our salvation. indd 40 9/4/2010 9:14:43 AM 1 Thessalonians 1:1–10 41 good spirit will enable us to endure it with joy (cum gaudio) from the Holy Spirit. All will then know and admire such suffering on behalf of faith and our teaching, as the readers in truth recognize their Lord, whom God raised from the dead, and who will come to us from heaven (In Epistolas B. Pauli Commentarii, 5–6).

In 1 Thess. 1:2 the thanksgiving melts or merges into the body of the letter, as it does in Phil. 1:3. But this thanksgiving is warm and affectionate, not merely conventional. For example, Paul addresses the readers as “brothers” (or NRSV, “brothers and sisters”). This was an early term for fellow Christians, and it is repeated in this Epistle some 13 times as an address. It suggests warm affection and solidarity with the readers. They establish new bonds in a new community. Paul typically begins his letter with prayer, which becomes a repeated theme, and which he promises to offer constantly, as a caring pastor.
