In his New Testament commentary series, John Stanko captures the essence of each verse, with plenty of questions and tips not only to help you understand the Word, but also to apply it in your everyday life.
In this volume, John looks at seven epistles written by James, Peter, John, and Jude. Each letters reveals that the leaders of the early church were dealing with problems common to the Church and believers then and today. Those problems included immoral behavior, but also involved things like persecution, false doctrine, false and wicked leaders, and the role of Jesus in life and salvation. Some were saying then (as they do now) that there were other ways to God the Father other than Christ. The writers, all eyewitnesses to Jesus' life and ministry, insisted there were not, that Jesus was the only way. By studying these letters, you will learn how these four men responded to the challenges of their day so you will be equipped to do the same in yours.
