The letter to the Romans is a theological treatise rather than a letter.
The apostle Paul is he writer of Romans. It is written in Greek, because it was most familiar to his readers and the apostle Paul could also write in Greek.
I Thessalonians 4:13-5:11 .... I & II Thessalonians is probably the earliest Christian document that has come down to us. The apostle Paul wrote the First Epistle from Corinth, in the names of himself, Silas, and Timothy, late in 52 or early in 53.
I Thessalonians 4:1-5:22 .... advice and comfort, because of the triumph in the resurrection.
