THERE turns out no sturdy 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 checklist of the apostles, as given two times by means of Luke (Luke 6:16; Acts 1:13), yet who's referred to as by way of Matthew “Lebbeus, whose surname used to be Thaddeus” (Matt. 10:3), and by means of Mark easily Thaddeus (Mark 3:18). John distinguishes him in a distinct means by way of talking of him as “Judas, no longer Iscariot” (John 14:22). it's glaring, from the best way Paul writes of this James, the son of Alpheus, that he used to be a truly close to relation, in keeping with 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, store James the Lord’s brother” (Gal 1:19). James the good, the son of Zebedee, had met a martyr’s loss of life prior to the stopover at right here observed; as a result it turns into undeniable that James the fewer is intended. The time period “the Lord’s brother” doesn't inevitably suggest all that it can, had the epistle been written in our language; nonetheless it implies very shut courting. Lot is named Abram’s brother, while truly he used to be his nephew. but nevertheless, had Jude been desirous of creating a good convey within the flesh, he who was once so heavily concerning the Lord as guy, shouldn't have written of himself as he does the following, “Jude, bondman of Jesus Christ.” He had recognized Christ after the flesh; have been associated up with Him through ties of kindred universal to few; yet he is familiar with Him so not more. Gladly he owns Him as God’s anointed, his Lord and grasp. one other writing of him could, 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).
