dc.description.abstract The objective of this study was the determination of the possible communicative function(s) of the "thanksgiving(s)" in I Thessalonians. Normally in the Pauline letters, immediately following the salutation, there is a single identifiable epistolary section called the "thanksgiving". Since more than one "thanksgiving" could be identified in I Thessalonians, a problem developed which gave rise to various theories; for example, that I Thessalonians is a composite of more than one letter, or that I Thessalonians underwent later editorial changes, or that I Thessalonians was not written by Paul. The conclusion of this study is that "thanksgiving" is a misnomer for these sections in I Thessalonians, because in reality they do not function as thanksgivings but are intended to render the implied readers favourable towards the encoded author so that they can be receptive to his argumentation. In order to fulfil this function, the encoded author used the persuasive means of ethos and pathos in the "thanksgiving(s)" in I Thessalonians. en
