During my doctoral studies at Toronto School of Theology, I pursued scholarly work in New Testament under such scholars as Richard N. Longenecker, John C. J.

On a flat surface, a layer of strips with fibers running parallel was covered by another layer with fibers at right angles to the first. The layers were pressed into one fabric and dried to become writing Page 22 material almost as strong as modern paper (Metzger, 1992:3-4). The word paper is derived from papyrus. Because of extremely dry conditions in desert areas of Egypt outside the delta, such papyri were preserved in the sand until discovered many centuries later, brittle with age.

The phrase now concerning (4:9; 5:1; as in 1 Cor. 7:1; 8:1; 12:1; 16:1) has been taken as a hint that the Thessalonians also wrote a letter to Paul (Faw, 1952).
