Presuming that the center of Paul's gospel assertion was once the inside track that God had raised Jesus from the lifeless (as indicated in 1 Thessalonians 1:9b-10), Pillar explores the facts in Paul's letter and in elements of the Roman imperial tradition in Thessalonica as a way to think what that proclamation may have evoked for its first hearers. He argues that the gospel of resurrection may were heard as essentially anti-imperial: Jesus of Nazareth used to be achieved via the epitome of imperial energy. The resurrection therefore subverts and usurps the empire's big strength. The argument is demonstrated in facets of the reaction of these residing in a completely imperialized city.
