Example text

9:13, and Augustine on Matt. 20:1–16. God’s will, he said, is the reason for salvation (1, qu. 23, art. 3). ” Hadewijch of Antwerp, from the Béguine movement, has been credited with writing: Ah! sweet Love, I would that I were love, And loved thee, Love, with love itself! Ah! sweet Love, for love’s sake grant That love may wholly know her love. John Huss (1371–1415) similarly urges faithfulness, as Paul urged the Thessalonians (On Simony 6, p. 247). At the conclusion of this work he brings together “our faith, hope, [and] love” (On Simony 10, p.

The biblical expositions of Johann Albrecht Bengel (1687–1752), often reckoned among the Pietists, are a classic. He spoke of the “pure sweetness” of this Epistle, in which Paul needs no title. Paul writes “familiarly to the godly Thessalonians, who required no preface respecting his apostolic authority” (Gnomon Novi Testamenti, 796). ” He saw labor as “outward kindnesses,” in contrast to those “who evade all exertion for the sake of their own interests” (796). He warned against sloth. The Holy Spirit performed “his saving and miraculous operation” (nec non miraculosa, 797).

This does not “contradict” the First Epistle, in which Paul stresses that the date of the Parousia is unknown. It clarifies and supplements it, and corrects a misunderstanding. The fathers of the church saw no tension here. Chrysostom, we noted, welcomed the emphasis on the judgment of God, even if some found it unpalatable. The stress on holiness of life is seen by many as a concomitant of suffering and of apocalyptic. While God’s people aim at holiness, God will guard them and direct their hearts.
