ABSTRACT
The article compares the New Testament passage of 1 Thessalonians 2: 13-16 with a passage from the apocryphal commentary on Genesis "Testament of Levi," to demonstrate Paul's attitudes toward the Jewish people. Issues discussed include Paul's thematic intent in the Thessalonian passage, analysis of Paul's description of the offenses of the Jews and his verdict on such offenses, and structural comparison of the passages.
