Explore the Bible: 1st Thessalonians: Session 6: Remember the Promise

A significant difference exists between a period and a comma. A period represents the ending of a subject matter or a particular event. A comma represents a temporary or slight pause and then a continuation of the subject or event. Paul was concerned about how the Thessalonian believers understood the death of loved ones. We need to see their passing as a comma and not the end. We are able to do this because of the hope we have in the promised return of Christ.
