“But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference:”
‭‭~ Jude‬ ‭1:20-22‬ ‭KJV‬‬
A short book of warning, and some interesting topics.

"To Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy - to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power, and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevemore! Amen. Jude 1:24-25 NIV

The letter of Jude only contains 32 verses. However the letter demonstrates that Jude was very serious about his faith in Jesus Christ. Jude provides an exhortation of how to and the importance of contended for our faith.

Recommended for ALL Christian's!

Jude is the shortest book in the Bible with only 32 verses. Jude was one of Jesus' brothers. In this short book, Jude repudiates those who oppose Christianity because the church had degenerated. He tells the faithful to fight for a historic faith and not be taken in by false prophets. ...more

Only one book left to go. Ooh, the anticipation!

In January 2015 I set myself the challenge to read the complete Bible within a year. I discovered that was an unrealistic challenge, and decided to pick up my Bible as and when I felt ready to read more of it. Here is a link to all the reviews in my Bible challenge so far:

The book of Jude has only one chapter but it is very potent.

Words from the entire book of Jude:

1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:

2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.

3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delive

Na, na, na, NA NA NA NA!!! Oh, sorry. Wrong Jude . . .


Jude is a short but passionate letter, with a few curious passages that hint at intriguing stories long lost (presumably) to our common storehouse of lore.

"Yet when Michael the archangel was disputing with the devil in an argument about Moses's body, he did not dare utter a slanderous condemnation against him . . ."
Jude 9

Um . . . what?

Michael and Satan once argued over Moses's body? Now THAT would have been an argument well worth hearin

So first, off, who is the author? It is Judas... but... as we all know, another man by this name spoiled it forever. So there was a name changed to protect the innocent, yes they replace the AS with an E, leaving us with Jude.

Jude, was likely the youngest brother of Jesus, with his others brothers, he had his doubts about Jesus, if you think about it, how bizarre would it be if your oldest brother went about claiming to be God and the savior of the world! I am sure it was unsettling t

That was a fun short little book. It definitely was a product of its time in the warnings and the sayings but the message of it is the same, be warned against people who have twisted the gospel into something it is not, and that is a very good warning.
I read this in the message version but I wanted to include this as a separate book entry into Goodreads so that's why it's the ESV. I also compared some of the passages to my Kindle hcsb version (the one Beth Moore uses).

Written by the brother of Jesus and James, this book encourages Christian's to stand strong in their faith.

God is continually being hurt and let down by us humans. It is heartbreaking. The speaking I'll against God part really got to me because there are times when I may not have outright spoken ill but I denied. When I didnt believe.

Then there were times when I did speak ill to sort of try to relate to others because I wanted to what? Fit in? Be accepted by them? For what? ...

Not worth hurting

Jude Review (No Spoilers)

Jude is the second to last book in the Bible. I see it as kind of a reminder and a warning to obey God’s commands and to be a good Christian. It says that God will judge us and that we have to be prepared. It said to not follow ungodly desires and warned us that the wicked will not go to heaven. I think this was a good warning and reminder. I give Jude 4/5 stars.

here we are reminded that there are false teachers among us, and we are provided with ways to prevent ourselves from getting influenced by them: keeping ourselves spiritually, praying in the Holy Spirit and looking to Jesus, our living hope. but the best part is this: God is the One that prevents us from stumbling. so we look to Him, we do what we can, but ultimately our trust is in Him, not in our efforts.

I found this short book of the New Testament very interesting in that it makes many references to the lives of the Heavenly Angels - I cannot remember many if any direct references being made to such events as the Archangel Michael battling the Devil or Lucifer's banishment from Heaven. Maybe I have just forgotten, but if not I would like to know where such revelations were first given. ...more

Jude a short book was about false teachers and believers guarding against such so as not to be mislead. It was also about encouraging believers to stand firm in the faith.

0 But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life. In this way, you will keep yourselves safe in God’s love.

I was drawn toward the message in this book!! It is extremely true on why we should stay true to our faith and beliefs.

Chp. 17-19 “ the last days, people won’t take things seriously anymore...they’ll treat things like a joke..”

Chp. 20-21 “..But you dear friends, build yourself up in the most holy faith...This is the unending life, the real life!”
