Jude

The Letter from Jude
—Studies in Jude’s epistle

jude A series of studies of the short letter from Jude. It is the second last “book” in the Bible, and a very interesting document. There are four parts to the letter: Introduction, Reminders, Condemnation, and Exhortation.

Jude’s Introduction

arrow Jude’s Short LetterOur first study in the letter from Jude. We look at his introduction in verses 1-2. He states who he is, describes those he is writing to, and gives a blessing.


arrow Fighting for the First FaithA study of the letter from Jude looking at his preface in verses 3-4. Jude is concerned that God’s holy people should contend earnestly for the faith that had already been delivered to them.


Reminders

arrow Choice, Change, ChallengeDown through the ages there have been great departures from God and the true faith. These departures were by choice; they changed the grace of God into lewdness; their disobedience challenges the faithful to contend for the true faith. Jude mentions three historic examples (Jude 1:4-7).


arrow Defilers Speaking EvilJude continues to warn against departures from the faith by false teachers. He says that they speak evil of spiritual authorities, and on the fleshly plane they defile and corrupt (Jude 1:8-11).


Condemnation and Judgment

arrow Images of DoomAnother study in Jude’s short epistle, looking at verses 12 and 13 in which Jude condemns the false men who are diverting God’s people from the apostolic faith one for all delivered (Jude 1:12-13).


arrow Enoch’s Promise of JudgmentThis lesson in our studies of Jude’s epistle looks at verses 14-16 where Jude quotes Enoch’s promise that the wicked will be judged by the Lord (Jude 1:14-16).


Exhortation

arrow But You Beloved...In the final section of Jude’s short epistle, Jude gives three exhortations in view of those evil men whom he condemns in the epistle. In this lesson we carefully consider those exhortations (Jude 1:17-23).


Benediction

arrow To Him Who Is Able...Jude’s short epistle ends with a benediction —a poem of blessing about God's ability to keep us from stumbling, present us blameless, and give us great joy (Jude 1:24-25).
