Jude

Details, Please

Jude tackles the same problems Peter did in his second letter: false teachers who were leading the early church astray.  “Murmurers” and “complainers” who were “walking after their own lusts” (16) were apparently using the grace of God as a cover for their sinful lifestyles – and encouraging Christian believers to do the same.  True believers, Jude says, reflect God’s love, show compassion, and work to pull sinners “out of the fire” (23).
