Understand issues faced by the Church and the solutions given by Paul
Helpful commentary to the letter
Understand how the book fits with the rest of the Bible
Paul wrote this letter shortly after the return of Timothy’s account of how the newly found Church was emerging. He was able to deduct that certain issues identified in the first letter were still prevalent. In some cases, the scenarios have gotten worse.
One strong opposition identified was a letter supposed to have been written by Paul in which was claimed that the 2nd Coming had already taken place! Such a rumor ignited the confusion and fear responsible for idleness within this body of Christ. Some thought there was no need to work if the rapture had opened whilst others chose idleness as the safest of waiting on the Lord when he eventually arrives.
Paul sent the Church a plain timeline that spells out some of the end-time events. Many who have studies this short book have found these additions beneficial for the study of the book of revelation.
