[1] Arnoldus Leidreben (died 1721) was a Dutch Reformed minister. He produced commentaries on Philippians and 1 Thessalonians. [2] John Jewel (1522-1571) was an English churchman, living through the tumultuous times of the English Reformation. He suffered exile under Mary, but returned and was installed as Bishop of Salisbury under Elizabeth. Jewel became a literary defender of the Elizabethan settlement, engaging Roman Catholic opponents (such as Thomas Harding) and Puritans. Commentaries on First and Second Thessalonians were also produced by him. [3] William Bradshaw (1571-1618) was a moderat English Puritan. Thomas Gataker published Bradshaw’s commentary on 2 Thessalonians.
