Commentary on the Book of Jude

June 21, 2014

Interesting commentary at the beginning of the book of Jude……could easily be said of today……

Fight! Contend! Do battle! When apostasy arises, when false teachers emerge, when the truth of God is attacked, it is time to fight for the faith. Only believers who are spiritually “in shape” can answer the summons. At the beginning of his letter Jude focuses on the believers common salvation, but then feels compelled to challenge them to contend for the faith. The danger is real. False teachers have crept into the church turning God’s grace into unbounded license to do as they please. Jude reminds such men of God’s past dealings with unbelieving Israel, disobedient angels, and wicked Sodom and Gomorrah. In the face of such danger Christians should not be caught off guard. The challenge is great, but so is the God who is able to keep them from stumbling.
