Best Bible Commentaries on Jude

Jude is the twenty-sixth book of the New Testament. Authorship is traditionally attributed to Jude, brother of James, the half-brother of Jesus. Jude writes to warn the readers of false teachings who distorted the work of Christ and the doctrine of grace. Commentaries on Jude often address what is known of Jude, the characteristics of false teachers and what churches should do about them.
