The Epistle of Jude: A Clarion Call to Contend for the Faith
The Epistle of Jude: A Clarion Call to Contend for the Faith ~ by Pastor Melissa Scott, Ph.D.
“It is difficult in our generation to understand this idea of heresy or heretics because, quite frankly, the church at large has become rather heretical.”
—Pastor Melissa Scott, Ph.D.
The Epistle of Jude is often overlooked because it is one of the shortest books in the Bible. Yet its author, a half-brother of Jesus Christ, manages in a mere 25 verses to encapsulate one of the major themes of the entire Bible: the danger of apostasy. Jude sounds a warning against falling away from God, whether through unbelief, pride, or sheer complacency. In Jude’s day, the immediate danger was from false teachers who had crept into the church bringing heretical doctrine for their own personal gain at the expense of other people’s souls. This same danger exists in every generation of the church, and it certainly exists today.
Pastor Melissa Scott unfolds the Scriptures through use of the best extant manuscripts along with in-depth word studies and ancient extra-biblical writings. She explains how Jude’s readers would have understood his writing in their day, and how we can apply Jude’s teachings to our relationship with Jesus Christ.
The Epistle of Jude: A Clarion Call to Contend for the Faith proves how one of the shortest books in the Bible is one of the most useful for the church today.
