1 Thessalonians 2:13-14

Context
2:13 And so 1  we too constantly thank God that when you received God’s message that you heard from us, 2  you accepted it not as a human message, 3  but as it truly is, God’s message, which is at work among you who believe. 2:14 For you became imitators, brothers and sisters, 4  of God’s churches in Christ Jesus that are in Judea, because you too suffered the same things from your own countrymen as they in fact did from the Jews,

1 tn Grk “for this reason,” which seems to look back to Paul’s behavior just described. But it may look forward to v. 13b and mean: “and here is another reason that we constantly thank God: that…”

2 tn Grk “God’s word of hearing from us.”

3 tn Paul’s focus is their attitude toward the message he preached: They received it not as a human message but a message from God.

4 tn Grk “brothers.” See note on the phrase “brothers and sisters” in 1:4.
