Jude : Interpretation (6)

  1. "Jude, the ... brother of James"
    The author claims to be "Jude, the brother or James," which means he is also claiming to be the brother of Jesus, since that was the most famous James among believers at the time (Gal 1:19). He was lying, of course. 1
  2. Do angels have sex? 6-7
  3. What was Sodom's sin? 7
  4. Michael the Archangel (Jesus according to the Watchtower) argued with the devil about the body of Moses. 9
  5. Enoch, "the seventh from Adam", prophesied that God would come with 10,000 of his saints "to execute judgment upon all." But this prophecy is from the Book of Enoch, not from the Bible. 14-15
  6. "Remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles."
    Jude was written in post-apostolic times, so it's author could not have been the apostle Jude (Luke 6:16; Acts 1:13; cf John 14:22) as believers sometimes claim. 17
