The letter was written by Jude, the “brother of James” (Jude 1). While the name Jude (Hebrew: Judah, Greek: Judas) was very common (Luke 6:16), scholarship identifies this particular Jude as Jesus’ half brother. The James mentioned in Jude 1 is most likely the well-known leader of the church in Jerusalem (Acts 15:13) who was another half brother of Jesus (Gal. 1:19; cf. Matt. 13:55; Mark 6:3; James 1:1). Jude’s greeting and teaching are similar to James’s, and Jude does not include himself within the original group of apostles (Jude 17-18).
