  2. The fallen Angels – their rebellion against God and God’s judgement upon them
  3. Sodom & Gammorah […]

Jude v. 1-4 Beware of false teachers


Jude v. 1-4 - personal bible studyI’m leading a bible study with a small group.  We’re currently doing the book of Jude.  This very short letter written by the half brother of Jesus is tucked away and rarely quoted but it offers a very practical and important message to christians.  Last week I provided the background […]

The Epistle of Jude – Introduction


JudeI thought I would share my personal bible study of Jude.  This easily overlooked letter found near the end of the New Testament is unique and offers the Christian a very clear lesson about false teachers.  I begin all of my studies with prayer and then do an overview study of the book before I study […]
