THERE turns out no reliable cause to doubt, and each cause to think, that the author of this solemn but comforting letter is the “Judas, the brother of James,” pointed out within the record of the apostles, as given two times via Luke (Luke 6:16; Acts 1:13), yet who's referred to as through Matthew “Lebbeus, whose surname used to be Thaddeus” (Matt. 10:3), and by way of Mark easily Thaddeus (Mark 3:18). John distinguishes him in a unique means via conversing of him as “Judas, now not Iscariot” (John 14:22). it really is obtrusive, from the best way Paul writes of this James, the son of Alpheus, that he used to be a really close to relation, based on the flesh, to our Saviour, the Lord Jesus. After pointing out his first interview with Peter, he says: “But different of the apostles observed I none, retailer James the Lord’s brother” (Gal 1:19). James the good, the son of Zebedee, had met a martyr’s demise just before the stopover at the following stated; accordingly it turns into simple that James the fewer is intended. The time period “the Lord’s brother” doesn't inevitably suggest all that it will, had the epistle been written in our language; nonetheless it implies very shut dating. Lot is named Abram’s brother, whilst truly he used to be his nephew. but on the other hand, had Jude been desirous of creating a good exhibit within the flesh, he who used to be so heavily relating to the Lord as guy, do not have written of himself as he does right here, “Jude, bondman of Jesus Christ.” He had identified Christ after the flesh; have been associated up with Him via ties of kindred universal to few; yet he is aware Him so not more. Gladly he owns Him as God’s anointed, his Lord and grasp. one other writing of him may well, out of courtesy, have used an analogous time period as Paul utilized to Jude’s brother; yet writing of himself, he's easily the “slave of Jesus Christ.” James speaks of himself within the similar way—“a bondman of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ” (Jas. 1:1).
