Jude was the half-brother of Jesus. He and James were sons of Mary and Joseph, whereas Jesus was the Son of God born through the virgin Mary. Jude wrote this letter to address the false teaching that was creeping into the early church. Ungodly men were leading people astray by denying the deity of Christ and by promoting immoral lifestyles that presumed on the grace of God. Jude exhorted the church to contend earnestly for the Christian faith. He writes of the many times in the past when God dealt harshly with apostates. Jude didn’t give exact instructions on how to contend for the faith, instead he encouraged Christians to keep themselves in the love of God.
