[reaction to OYB’s Oct. 12-14]
The Epistle are going to start flying by now. It appears that the Thessalonians were pretty good kids. Paul was concerned about them being deceived by false prophets. 2 Thes. 2. Curiously similar, Jeremiah is warning the people of Judah not to allow false prophets give them false hope. Jer. 23:16-32. It appears some folks were saying that Christ had already returned, and others were saying that Judah had survived.
Some gruesome cannibalism references shared between Kings and Jeremiah here.
