This study is part of the LifeLight Bible study series of in-depth studies of Bible books. The goal of LifeLight is that through a regular program of in-depth personal and group study of Scripture, more and more Christian adults may grow in their personal faith in Jesus Christ. The task of warning the church about such individuals and calling Christians to persevere in the grace of God fell to “Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James” (Jude 1).

Like James, Jude chose not to accentuate his physical relation to Jesus, but his spiritual one ("a bondservant of Jesus Christ," cf. Jde ; Jas ). Jude which in Hebrew is Judas was one of four half-brothers of Jesus Christ (Mark ; Matt ). He is not the same Judas as the Apostle Judas who was the son of James (Luke ; Acts ). Just like Jesus’ other family members, except for His mother Mary, they didn’t believe in Him.

James has been called the most practical letter in the New Testament. Pearl Hamilton, founder of Disciplers Bible Studies, memorized the entire book as a child. She called it the “Proverbs of the New Testament”. James’ premise is that our words and our works should demonstrate our faith and that faith without works is a dead faith. The commentary interprets the letters of James and Jude as having been written early in the life of the Church and maintains that the letter of James may be one of the oldest Christian writings as well as an early witness to the teachings of Jesus.5/5(2).
