Wesley's Notes for Jude 1:14


1:14 And of these also - As well as the antediluvian sinners Enoch - So early was the prophecy referred to, #Jude 1:4|. The seventh from Adam - There were only five of the fathers between Adam and Enoch, #1Chron 1:1 |- 3. The first coming of Christ was revealed to Adam; his second, glorious coming, to Enoch; and the seventh from Adam foretold the things which will conclude the seventh age of the world. St. Jude might know this either from some ancient book, or tradition, or immediate revelation. Behold - As if it were already done, the Lord cometh!


People's Bible Notes for Jude 1:14


Jude 1:14 Enoch also. This prophecy of the holiest man of the antediluvian world might have been preserved by tradition. It is found in the Book of Enoch, a work long lost, but recovered in modern times in Abyssinia, supposed to have been composed the century before Christ. Wherever Jude met it, he was familiar with the prophecy. The seventh from Adam. To the Jew there was a sacredness in seven. Prophesied of these. These blasphemers. The prophecy is quoted.

    Strong meat is for those whose spiritual senses are exercised through enduring temptations and trials of faith. "Hard to be uttered" to babes in understanding the word of righteousness necessary to receive strength and growth in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard what God has prepared for them who love him. But by his Holy Spirit he reveals the hidden manna.
  • Tequan Elias
    I like Jude because it speaks about Enoch
  • Grace
    such a nice epistle, i like verse 8 "Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities".that is what we have every where in the world today people defiling the flesh and speaking evil of dignities, may God continue to keep his own ,and grant us more grace as we earnestly wait for his return.
  • Matonsi
    What an awesome epistle we got...Jude the brother of James both of them sons of Mary, mother of our Lord Jesus Christ.....this epistle has revealed to about the Enoch prophecies and about the what happened into Moses body...
  • Walter Rivera Santos
    Jude, James's brother, presents a Spiritual grounded faith to hold our personal life thoughts and acts on Him.
  • Johann
    Very deeply spiritual book, even quoting from the book of Enoch, which we dont have in the canon of the Bible. I dont always understand everything written in a book like this - you can add Revelations to it, however, in the gentlest way ever, the Holy Spirit would feed my soul with something as simple as verse 23. Ever wondered about a certain piece of clothing in your closet?
