  4. 2 Thessalonians 1:1 The church is both “in” God the Father and “in” Jesus Christ. The Trinity is making room for the bride.
  5. 2 Thessalonians 1:2 The usage of charis (grace) in ancient classical Greek carries the connotation of something that awakens joy and pleasure. The Greek concept of grace imparts delight, often attached to a strong emotional element. Paul uses the term grace as a joyous delight that rests upon the people of God. See Thomas F. Torrance, The Doctrine of Grace in the Apostolic Fathers, 1–2.
  6. 2 Thessalonians 1:2 Some manuscripts add “from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
