Jude famously called his readers to “contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.” But against whom are they to contend? Who are these “ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ”? Herb Bateman, NT scholar and President of the Cyber-Center for Biblical Studies, has a hypothesis: Judean zealots who were recruiting for the Jewish Wars leading up to the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem. In this conversation, Bateman illustrates the importance of dating, provenance, and other historical questions to understanding and applying the Scriptures.
