Also in 1st Thess, and 2nd Thess Two,.. there is the question as well as to the pronouns and the audience being written too, and/or written about.. When Paul uses the term (as if translated in the KJV), "Now, Brothern, I would not have you... " the question becomes just how much expanded or extended throughout time can be understood to be those Brothern.. Was it only for a limited time as if only those who first received that Epistle form Paul's courier.. and read the first time by that assembly at Thessonlians.. or does it extend even down now to the 21st Century and even others as brethern, who are not assembled at Thessolinica?

Since I am mainly a Constructionalism in textual interpretation, I am fairly restricted and bound by the syntax and sematics, at least for my first approximations of the understanding of these texts..

However, some are Originalists so they get a different understanding..

If you don't konw that Constructionist and Originalist terms mean,consult Wikipedia for instance .. read and learn..

BTW, the same to methods of textual interpretation, even of the English text of the US Constituion,those two methods, the Constructionalist and the Originalists, give air and reason as to why there is divison even within the Constitutionalists, those even among the US Supreme Court Justices.. just in case ya'all were not aware of that.

One the other hand I cannot see in the least ( if they have used the Constructionalist methods) how the Pre-Tribs thing we must be yet waiting to see the abomination of desolation at the Temple in a place it ought not be seen.. and the implication that it implies that since that temple no longer even stands therefore must be rebuilt.. before there can be a Place where the abomination of desolation can be seen to be found in, so that one can then know it is time to flee that Temple and flle Jerusalem and head to the Hills.. aka tiime to bug out of the temple and Jerusalem.

I didn't get that said very smoothly.. but I think you can see my points there..
