Jude 1

Click For Today’s Audio


I don’t know if there is a more jam-packed book in the whole Bible. Perhaps that’s because this one is only 25 verses in 1 chapter.

Jude was a half-brother of Jesus, though he doesn’t mention that in his writing. He wasn’t a name-dropper, I think there’s a lesson there. But Jude was also not a believer or disciple until after his half-brother, Jesus rose from the dead. Sometimes people need to spend a lot of time around Jesus before they are convinced of who He really is.

There are a lot of challenging words and ideas in this short letter, and some strange references too. But the challenge given by Jude 2,000 years ago is still amazingly relevant today.

Today’s goal

Let your non-believing friends and family spend time seeing Jesus in your life.
