Jude is one of those books of the Bible that most know little about yet its message is so vital and needed for the time we live in. The theme of the letter is a condemnation of false teachers that were infiltrating the church in the time of the early church. Unfortunately those false teachers are still at work together, stronger than ever.
In John MacArthur's commentary on Jude we are given a thorough teaching on this often neglected epistle. This commentary has deep theological truths that are written in an easy-to-read format.
Writing about false teachers is easy yet difficult. Easy in that they are so prevalent; difficult in that many people are led astray by them. And as often the case those that are led astray are easily offended if someone points that out to them. In this commentary, MacArthur avoids offense in his denunciation of false teachers by showing in Jude and throughout Scripture the evilness of their ways.
There is also much history in the epistle that MacArthur explains and gives appropriate context for. Not one historical reference is left without comment.
No matter your level of Biblical understanding, you will be enriched in your faith in this commentary and will have a greater understanding of this amazon letter of Jude.
In this volume John writes about II Peter. I haven't referred to John's commentary on that book, at least not yet.
My only real complaint with the digital version of Macarthur's commentary is it appears you can't print from the program. I can understand that to an extent; otherwise one could simply print his own version of the commentary rather than buying the nicer bound version. But it would be nice to have limited print capability so a few lines or paragraphs could be available in hardcopy form. Other than that one drawback, the downloadable version is well worth the price.
