1 1 Jude Class Schedule

2 2 Jude, Judas and Judah in Scripture Jude - Ioudas - masc. proper noun transliterated from the Hebr. Yehūdāh confessor of Jehovah, praise. Judah or Judas. The name of eight persons mentioned in Scripture. – Zodhiates Judah, the fourth son of Jacob and head of the tribe of Judah Matt. 1:2, 3; Luke 3:33 Judas or Judah, two of the ancestors of Jesus - Luke 3:26, 30 The eleventh name of two lists of the apostles - Luke 6:16; Acts 1:13 Judas the brother of James in gospels & Jude - Matt. 13:55; Mark 6:3

3 3 Jude, Judas and Judah in Scripture (cont.) Judas, surnamed Iscariot, meaning man of Kerioth, an apostle and betrayer of the Lord Jesus Judas surnamed Barsabas, a teacher sent from Jerusalem to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas - Acts 15:22, 27, 32 Judas, a Jew living in Damascus with whom Paul lodged at his conversion - Acts 9:11 Judas, surnamed the Galilean - Acts 5:37

4 4 James Jude Jesus JosesSimonsisters MaryJoseph The family tree of Jesus’ family * Jesus was properly a half-brother to these siblings Jesus’ brothers did not believe in Him until after Christ was resurrected (John 7:5; Acts 1:14). The names James, Joses, Jude & Simon are given in Mark 6:3, as is the fact that Jesus had sisters. Of Jesus’ brothers, James is the one of which the most is recorded. * adapter from Vern’s notes

5 5 Like James he was a Hellenized Galilean Jew who wrote with a cultivated Greek style James became a believer after Jesus' resurrection (1 Cor. 15:7) and we may assume that Jude did too Jesus' brothers were part of the praying group that awaited the coming of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:14) Jude's many allusions to the Old Testament suggest that his original readers were very familiar with it The time of writing is very difficult to ascertain maybe some years after the day of Pentecost (perhaps A.D ) Historical Background of Jude * * T. Constable

6 6 1. “the faith” = the teachings of the Apostles and Prophets * synonyms: “the faith” = the truth sometimes “the faith” = the Gospel 2. apostasy – a total departure from one’s faith or religion ** apostasia (gr) – lit: to stand off from or away from Apostasy is when you have heard the truth and understand what it says and then you willingly reject it. (McCalley) The brief epistle of Jude is without parallel in the New Testament for its vehement denunciation of libertines and apostates. (Hiebert) Two key points in the book of Jude * The Faith by V. Peterman ** Standard Dictionary

7 7 I.Jude presents a conflict between two classes of men Beloved (see v:3, 17, 20) “Certain men” referenced as they, these or them (see v:4, 8, 10, 12,14, 19) It also contrasts these two classes of men v: these vs. but you beloved v: these vs. but you beloved It tells us how to treat these men Outline of Jude from McCalley

8 8 Jude 1 Jude, a bond-servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, To those who are the called, beloved in God the Father, and kept for Jesus Christ: 2 May mercy and peace and love be multiplied to you. 3 Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints. 4 For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. 5 Now I desire to remind you, though you know all things once for all, that the Lord, after saving a people out of the land of Egypt, subsequently destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day, 7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire. 8 Yet in the same way these men, also by dreaming, defile the flesh, and reject authority, and revile angelic majesties.

9 9 II. Jude did not plan to write this book v:3 Jude was in the process of writing about our common salvation common - koinos - belonging to several; said of things had in common He felt it necessary to write about contending for “the faith” Outline of Jude from McCalley

10 10 Outline of Jude from McCalley (cont.) III The theme is to contend for the faith contend is the idea to fight contend - epagōnizomai - signifies "to contend about a thing, as a combatant" (epi, "upon or about," intensive, agōn, "a contest") – see 1 Tim 6:12 Two questions are addressed Why contend for the faith (v:4 to v:16) How to contend for the faith (v:17 to v:23)

11 11 Outline of Jude from McCalley (cont.) Why contend for the faith (v:4 to v:16) God always judges apostasy (v:5-7) Israel, angels, Sodom & Gomorrah Sins of apostasy (v:8-11) defile the flesh, reject authority, unreasoning animals Names for the apostate (v:12-13) hidden reefs, clouds without water Doom of the apostate (v:14-16)

12 12 How to contend for the faith (v:17 to v:23) remember the words spoken beforehand building yourselves up by your faith praying in the Holy Spirit keep yourself in the love of God waiting anxiously for the mercy of Christ to eternal life rescue who you can mercy on some save others Outline of Jude from McCalley (cont.)

13 13 IV. Three separate destinies in Jude Beloved - to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy (v:24b) Angels - He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day (v:6b) Apostate - for whom the black darkness has been reserved forever (v:13b) Outline of Jude from McCalley (cont.)
