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.

Discussion for Jude 1

  • Irene123
    Occasionally I think back to my young days and attending Church with my parents and saying the doxology, "Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow ..... "; it always ended, Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. I looked it up and now it ends, "Creator, Christ and spirit, One." I guess they changed it in the new century, it doesn't say. At least they've got the ONE in there.

    The canon of the KJV was set by GOD; it is HIS book, after all. Anyone who wants to read the apocrypha can do so; it's in other books; so why complain about it ..... ? You still have your freedom to read the apocrypha. God will keep His book, the KJV, the way He wants it.
  • Joan Travick
    Man may be bribed and compromise his ethic and moral. But GOD does not change. Just because man accepts wrong for right does not mean GOD will change HIS word. Man will soon find that out. Man acceptance is not GOD's acceptance. HE will punish unrighteousness. HE will show up suddenly and man won't be prepared because HE can't prepare for what is coming upon the earth. HE won't compromise.

    I love the book of Jude. It is so reverent, to what is going on today. Everyone should study this book, and take heed to it IN JESUS NAME!
  • Irene123
    To word - The "sons of god" wee the HUMANS on earth that believed in God, but sinned in that they took wives of other people who did not believe in God. Angels are spirits - sexless, not physical; cannot reproduce.
  • Jbmac
    I think of the book of Enoch when I read Jude, and how the wolves (scribes and pharisees along with others due to satan's influence) took this book as well as thousands of other book out of our canon. For anyone who reads their bible and knows it inside out it is easy to pick out all the quotes and references there are in the new testament from the apocrypha books. God Bless all with wisdom. Amen
