Jude: The Easy Study Bible Commentary
Completely Revised and Greatly Enhanced!
Not for scholars but for anyone who struggles to understand the New Testament!
The Easy Study Bible Commentary takes The Easy Study Bible Diagramed and examines, describes and expounds upon each New Testament book, chapter by chapter, paragraph by paragraph, verse by verse and finally phrase by phrase.
In my many years of Bible study, I have found this arrangement to be the easiest to follow and understand.
I have done my best to write this commentary with the idea in mind of making it easier for you to understand and therefore apply the great teachings that God gave to each of us through the various books of the New Testament.
At the end of each section that we study, I will give you what I call my Greek Paraphrase. What I do is to take all of the expanded Greek definitions and put them together to help us better understand the passage.
The following example is from Jude 1:1-2:
1 Jude, a slave of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to those who are the called, loved by God the Father, and kept by Jesus Christ. 2 May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.
Greek Paraphrase of Verses 1-2:
Jude, a slave of Jesus Christ, and yet brother of James, to those who are the called, wrapped in the love of God the Father, and kept safe and secure by Jesus Christ. May mercy, peace, and love be lavished on you in abundance!
