The letters of James, 1 and 2 Peter, and Jude are among the most neglected letters of the NT. Thus, methodological advances in NT study tend to arise among the Gospels or Pauline letters. But these letters are beginning to receive increased attention in the scholarly community.
Reading Jude with New Eyes is the fourth of four volumes that incorporate research in this area. The essays collected here examine the impact of recent methodological developments in New Testament studies to Jude, including, for example, rhetorical, social-scientific, socio-rhetorical, ideological, and hermeneutical methods, as they contribute to understanding this letter and its social context. Each essay will have a similar three-fold structure: 1) a description of the methodological approach; 2) the application of the methodological approach to the particular letter under consideration (the bulk of the essay); and 3) a conclusion identifying how the methodological approach contributes to a fresh understanding the letter.
