Jude


We just learned about the book of Third John.

The next book in the bible is Jude.

This book is only one chapter long, and Jude is warning people to listen to God's word because he will come again some day.

Third John


We just learned about the book of Second John.

John wrote one last letter that we call Third John.

He wrote to his friend to tell him that he was coming to visit, and that he was coming to help their friends and work against some people who were doing bad things to the church.

A well known part of third John is:

Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good. Anyone who does what is good is from God. Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God.

First John


We just learned about the book of Second Peter.

The next book of the bible is the book of First John which was a letter that John wrote to tell people that God is perfect and that we should try to live our lives in love.

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.

First Peter


We just learned about the book of James.

Another book of the bible is First Peter who wrote a letter to some of the churches in his area.

He wrote to tell people to stay strong even if people were treating them badly for being Christians,
He told them how they should e acting, and reminded them about Jesus.

One famous saying from the book is:

Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

James


We just learned about all of the letters that Paul wrote.

The next book of the Bible after the Pauline Epistles is the book of James.

James wrote about many things, but one of his most famous was talking about how having faith in God is great, but you still have to live by the faith that you believe in and work hard to do what God wants you to do.

James 2:26 says:

As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.
