Today we read the letter of Jude and the prophecy of Obadiah.
Jude. Greetings from the half-brother of Jesus Christ to the called ones. Jude told the followers to contend for the faith for there had crept in apostates in the church,and since they live in the last days he urged them to maintain their life with God and give all glory to God.
Obadiah is a prophecy on the coming judgment on Edom, the descendants of Esau, Jacob’s brother. Edom mistreated his brother and this will lead to Israel’s final triumph.
