Is Death the End of our Hopes? – 1 Thessalonians Ch4v13to18

Is Death the End of our Hopes? – 1 Thessalonians Ch4v13to18

Colin Adams looks at what Paul is saying to the Thessalonians in this passage.  He explains it under three headings.

The Situation.  
The Thessalonians were in a situation they didn’t understand, so they were lacking hope.

The Information.
Paul supplies the information they need to comfort them and restore their hope.

The Application.
Those who believed that information received comfort.  The comfort didn’t abolish tears, but it did bring hope.  Having been comforted, they must bring that comfort to others.
