Jude in the Bible

The book of Jude is very short and was written to those who are called, dearly loved by God the Father and set apart and kept for Jesus Christ. Believers. You can find it located in the Bible, after 3rd John and right before the book of Revelation. Jude introduces himself as a servant of Jesus Christ and a brother of James.
I lean toward the theory that Jude was a son of Joseph and Mary, half brother of Jesus. Mark 6:3

Jude says that he really wanted to write this letter about the joy of the salvation but he felt compelled to write about a problem that had arisen. Men had infiltrated the church and were attempting to destroy the foundation of faith. These men denied the authority of Jesus Christ and took advantage of the grace and freedom offered to us and believed that they could go on with immoral behavior while being part of the church. Jude urged believers to contend for the faith. (contend: to strive in debate; dispute earnestly: to contend against falsehood.)

Sadly, we have the same problems in the church today. There are those who claim the Christian faith, but teach a different gospel than that of Jesus Christ. They will argue that we must be saved by something other than belief in Christ Jesus or they take advantage of grace and freedom to indulge in immorality.
In finishing his letter, Jude focuses attention back on God the Father, Who is Almighty and able to keep us from falling and to bring us into eternal life. Amen.
