The biblical expositions of Johann Albrecht Bengel (1687–1752), often reckoned among the Pietists, are a classic. He spoke of the “pure sweetness” of this Epistle, in which Paul needs no title. Paul writes “familiarly to the godly Thessalonians, who required no preface respecting his apostolic authority” (Gnomon Novi Testamenti, 796). ” He saw labor as “outward kindnesses,” in contrast to those “who evade all exertion for the sake of their own interests” (796).
