November's featured video is the second of a six part series about Jude's letter. Whereas Jude Part 1 surveyed introductory matters: authorship, destination, date, and occasion of Jude, this video underscores the occasion for Jude’s letter.
While acknowledging the similarities with other Evangelical commentators, Jude Part 2 underscores Bateman’s view that Jude is not so much concerned with the false teaching of false teachers but rather with the insurgence of Judean Zealots and their prompting of other Judeans to rebel against the Roman Empire. The video includes some suggested readings to help inform those who wish investigate further the historical occasion for the letter of Jude. The video concludes, however, with some pointed remarks about the letter’s relevance for today’s followers of Jesus.
Another overview of Jude’s letter may be found in Bateman's article entitled “Rebellion and God’s Judgment in Jude” published in Bibliotheca Sacra (2013). The article is available as a free download.
