Jude 1-16

  1. Contrast, clause by clause, the threefold description in verse 1 of the faithful believers, to whom Jude is writing, with the description in verse 4 of the false intruders into the church, whom he condemns.
  2. Compare Jude 4-16 with 2 Pet. 2:1-18. What resemblances and differences do you find?
  3. Verse 3. Are you contending for the faith? If it was ‘once for all entrusted to the saints’, is there any scope for modification as the church develops?

Note. Refer to NBC, p. 1418 for explanation of verses 9, 14, 15.
