Scofield's Reference Notes

Chapter 1

Book Overview - Jude

by C.I. Scofield

Book Introduction - Jude

WRITER: Jude, the brother of James (Judges 1:1)

DATE: Probably A.D. 66

THEME: It is not so much Jude who speaks, as the constraining Spirit (Judges 1:3) and the theme is, "Contending for the faith" (Luke 18:8), (See Scofield "Luke 18:8"). In this brief letter the apostasy (See Scofield "2 Thessalonians 2:3") of the professing church is predicted, and the cause and course described. As in Second Timothy and Second Peter the apostasy is treated as having already set in.

The Epistle is in five divisions:

1. Introduction Judges 1:1-2

2. Occasion of the Epistle, Judges 1:3-4

3. Apostasy is possible, Judges 1:5-7

4. Apostate teachers described, Judges 1:8-19

5. The saints assured and comforted, Judges 1:20-25
