Good Essays
Jude is known as the brother of James and the half brother of Jesus. It is said that Jude was written in 65 AD. Jude was writing to those who were teaching false; teaching in the Church and Jude warns those who turn away from Christ yet those who seek to know God are example of apostasy. The epistle of Jude was written to help the Christians to follow after the true and living God. Thus, not to be deceive by lies, to live a life of sin and still claim to be a follower of God is a sin. Jude gives a warning to those who follow after these false teaching. Jude the brother of James and the oldest half brother of Jesus (Jobes, 2011)the author who wrote the epistle in 65 AD. Some scholars believe the book was written by someone else by using Jude’s name. Scholars argue that if the brother of Jesus wrote this letter, then it would have been written within that generation, which would have been written in the year of 80 AD (Jobes, 2011). These scholars believe the time of the epistle was written is not of the time of the Great Commission (v17). Some of Jude’s audience were located in Jerusalem and in Palestine, however, near Antioch in Syria. Jobes write, “the fact that Jude had planning to write to them anyway, even before the crisis of heresy relationship …show more content…
Conclusion Jude and 2 Peter both have the right ideal as a leader to guide the church toward the kingdom of God by guiding them away from those leader who teach on false teaching, that is twisting God’s words to please their own fleshly desires. With these false message going out to the world it can cause destruction on people. Therefore if a person believes in God, but don’t believe in Christ thus they have no relationship with God, because He sent His Son Jesus Christ, who was born of a virgin Mary to come to the world and redeem them of their

    The author of Judges gives examples to God’s chosen people, the Israelites, to condemn the Israelites for rejecting God as their king, giving examples of their foolishness; he also tells stories about how God used different judges to deliver His people to a place of peace, despite later judges failing their missions (Baker et al. 350). This storytelling process help Israelites learn about God’s faithfulness in their accomplishments and failures. We see this repeated pattern throughout Judges where the Israelites broke the covenant; however, God remains faithful to the covenant, leaving him to discipline His own…

    If we are not preaching Christ, the Holy Spirit, and God the Father; our preaching is not Christian. Some churches and people for whatever reason attempt to eliminate Christ’s presence from their preaching. It is Christ who told us, “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father” Jesus is in time what God the Father is in eternity. Our preaching is not authentic when we don’t exalt and lift up the name of Jesus in our preaching. We have forgotten that Christ is the one who bleed and died for our sins and the sins of the world.…

    Do Jesus’ words “..It would have been better for that one not to have been born”(Matthew 26:24) convey that he was predestined to play the role of a traitor in Jesus’ journey to the cross? On one level, it can be argued that Jesus’ words express the truth that God chooses people to be disciples of Christ and once they make wrong choices because they have the free will, they end their journeys, metaphorically speaking either, desolate and dry and not healthy and fruitful. I would like to pause here and explore the unanswered question that my peers had about their lack of understanding about knowing the meaning of “flourishing.” Dr. Ray commented his peer insight to be based on a similar question stating “There is no clear sense or agreement of what flourishing…

    It guides the Christian faith by affecting the community’s transformation into “fully mature children of God”( Mackie, 2009). The hostility of the Jewish Christian allude that the suffering comes from God, James reminded the Christians to restraint from their sin and the saints should speak properly to those who backslide into sin ( James 5:19-20). Peter gave examples of Christ being persecuted, ( 1Peter 2:23) yet, Christ was “insulted and He did not retaliate.” Therefore man should come together in peace, not wavering in their faith. The church should not follow false teaching, and to remain steadfast and…

    In Simon’s journal she discussed how rules cannot change because people want to refrain from the truth. In “The Ones Who Walked Away from Omelas” no matter how angry they get about the child they still understand why it exist. The child strongly represents Christ, but what if its God that walked and not the non-believers as mentioned earlier. God knew that his son was going to die when he sent him to. The ones that walked away could be God’s wrath on sinful humanity “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them”(Romans 1 18-19).…

    Those who read the book of Genesis can see how the Lord makes it obvious that man and God are divided due to man’s sin. From the beginning of the Bible it is clear that God intends for someone to save us from sin and our own brokenness. (Gen. 3:15)3. Since the Old Testament states the problem that man has and cannot solve on his own, the New Testament shares the one who can relieve man of his wickedness and bear his sins. The Old Testament made it clear that man is unable to save himself by showing the increase of sin in exodus that the Lord eventually needed to wash out.…

    Whoever represents and directs the speech towards those who were considering becoming disciples and all those who want to listen. This is also a reference to how people can enter the kingdom of God and explains why he so harsh with his words. Then Jesus says, “does not hate”(Luke 14:26b-c) it parallels with “does not carry the cross” (Luke 14:27a) notice that both start with does not which gives a negative connotation. Hate is known to be a word of judgment and to many Hebrews this word was used for relationships between humans (Stuhlmueller 412). It is important to know that hate is the opposite of agape, which is a Greek term for love.…

    The Redeemer Symbolism

    Christ becoming the redeemer was started by God’s act of divine love, Christ being put on the cross and dying for our sins, something Benedict in Deus caritas est also argues. O’Collins summarizes, “None of these images for the redemptive process can be properly appreciated if we neglect the divine love revealed and at work in Christ” (Christology, p.300). The images we is referring to are the multiple Biblical stories he lists, each one showing how divine love exists in God through Christ. O’Collins argues that we must not neglect this divine love when understanding salvation. If it can be understood that divine love exists in God then, we can accept that God is acting out of love for mankind when he redeems all of his creations through Christ…

    When looking at who Jesus is according to a specific gospel it 's important to understand who wrote the piece and who it was written for. Mark’s Gospel was written in 65-70 CE, a time of persecution of Christians by Romans for their belief in Jesus. In Mark’s Gospel we see Jesus as healer and champion, suffering servant, and Messiah. In a time of persecution, it is no wonder that seeing Jesus as healer and champion appealed to the Christian audience. Throughout Mark’s Gospel we see evidence of Jesus healing people from their plights and standing up against the injustice they face in their lives.…

    Gnosticism comes from “gnosis” meaning knowledge. Some people say that later parts of John prove that it is a Gnostic text, because of Jesus suffering for the sins of humankind. Though for the sake of this paper, we are going to forget about that and focus solely on the conclusions we can drawn from the prologue. Gnosticism typically teaches that salvation is achieved by special knowledge. It is also dualistic; good and evil or light and dark.…
