The author of Jude identifies himself in verse 1 as Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James. This is the only epistle where the writer identifies himself by his family association. Obviously, this James was one of great reputation whom all the readers would be well acquainted with. James was probably the elder of the church in Jerusalem, the brother of Christ after the flesh. We can logically deduce that Jude was Judas, the brother of James.The date for the writing of this epistle has been placed somewhere between 67-68AD. Since Judas was known to have been a resident of Jerusalem, it was written before 70AD when Titus of Rome destroyed the city. Because of the strong similarities with 2nd Peter, we assume it was written soon after.This course features approximately 6 minutes of audio commentary.
