1. 1 Thessalonians 1:6 (ESV)
  2. Exposition

How does “you” mark a change in the text?

1 Thessalonians 1:6 (ESV)

6 And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit,

This pronoun signals a change of focus from Paul (at the end of verse 5) to the Thessalonians, who remain in the spotlight till the end of verse 10.
