1. Exposition

Did Paul preach the cross and resurrection of Christ in Thessalonica?

1 Thessalonians 4:14 (ESV)

14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep.

Paul had preached the gospel in Thessalonica (around AD 49), some years before he wrote this letter. Acts 17:1–3 explicitly says this.
