Jude

Summary of Jude…

Jude writes his epistle, identifying himself simply as a servant of Jesus and brother of James.  He intended to write about the common salvation, but evidently had some word that there were great threats to the brethren from false teachers and he changed his subject matter to contending earnestly for the faith.  This plain statement of verse 3 helps us to KNOW that the faith is not presently being revealed, but has already been revealed in the past.  Jude calls to their remembrance events of the past to urge them to be cautious and faithful.  He provides vivid descriptions of false teachers as a motivation for the faithful to use great caution.  He exhorts the brethren to remember, build themselves up, keep themselves in the love of God, and pray.  He concludes with one of the most beautiful doxologies ever written.
