1 Thessalonians 2:1; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Timothy 3:16

Paul's Ministry to the Thessalonians

For you yourselves know, brothers,1 that our fcoming to you gwas not in vain.


13 And jwe also thank God constantly1 for this, that when you received kthe word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it lnot as the word of men2 but as what it really is, the word of God, mwhich is at work in you believers.


16 Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness:

sHe1 was manifested in the flesh,

vindicated2 by the Spirit,3

tseen by angels,

uproclaimed among the nations,

vbelieved on in the world,

wtaken up in glory.
