Last week, we laid the foundation for our study that will give us the opportunity to study the whole book of Jude. This book is distinct in several ways. Jude was written by a man who was a half-brother of Jesus of Nazareth. It contains the only greeting in the New Testament that doesn't mention grace, and the only one that includes love. It was believed to be originally written to Jewish-Christians, but it is God's Word for His whole church, and so directly applicable to us. At the very outset it asks us to ask ourselves some important questions:
