Jude is the Book of Earnestly Contending for the Faith. Like James, Jude was a half brother of Jesus Christ, but simply calls himself a bond-servant. Remarkably similar to 2nd Peter, chapter two, Jude outlines the traits of false teachers, and urges his audience to be built up and prepared to stand in the presence of the Lord.
“Of Jude” is named for the author of the epistle.
Jude (Judas), the half brother of the Lord (Matt. 13:55).
