One of the coolest books of the Bible is Jude. It is as if Jude was a prophet tuned into exactly what is happening in America – even though his letter was given hundreds of years ago!
Jude was the brother of James – who were both human brothers of Jesus, the Son of God. Despite coming late to the party (Matthew 12.46; 13:55) James and Jude appear to have embraced the undeniable – Jesus had shown His authority over death. They bring a no nonsense perspective to what had happened in Jerusalem – and what it meant for every human being.
Read Jude and answer the following questions:
- What do angels and angelic majesties have to do with truth and authority?
- How do you personally respond to authority?
- What kind of leaders was Jude castigating?
- Why are mockers so destructive?
- Who are the mockers in your world?
- How are you supposed to respond to similar kinds of questions encountered in Jude’s world?
Love is both powerful and risky!
JUDE. What an awesome letter to fuel your faith!
