Discussion for Jude 1

  • David crawford
    a book of divine warnings against falling away from the faith. very sobering. we have to stay in the love of god or face divine judgement.

    All praise to the almighty father above! AMEN
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Where basically Isaiah is the entire Bible rolled into one book, Jude is the truth about the enemy from day one and his OFFSPRING rolled into one chapter. Alot of info in a tight space that should lead man to truth where fables run rampant. It's sort of a " touch up" clarifying myths. It'll lead you on a long long study of the devil's children n how they're still around. Important today surely.
