Every serious student of the Bible desires to understand the text, discover the biblical principles, and apply the truths to his or her life. This commentary is designed to help students, pastors, and Bible teachers understand James and Jude in a simple manner. Working from the popular New International Version (NIV), the author provides helpful commentary on the text verse by verse.This verse-by-verse commentary is different from others in two respects. First, it is brief while some commentaries are unnecessarily wordy and verbose. Second, it is Pentecostal in outlook. This implies that we generally adhere to the doctrine of biblical inerrancy and adopt a literalist approach to the interpretation of the Bible.
James and Jude are letters from James and Jude respectively, who are half brothers of our Lord Jesus.
The timeless truth that James presents is that believers must harmonize their faith and action. Our faith must be demonstrated in all situations of lifeat home, at work, in church, in the neighborhood. Jude writes to warn believers about false teachers and their heresy. He calls on believers to contend for the apostolic faith.
