Both the epistles of James and Jude are Jewish in their admonitions. James defines faith from the Hebrew definition of the word establish that real faith does what it professes to believe (James 1:22). This was important because the Gentiles saw "the faith" from more of a philosophical mindset thinking these truths were to be discussed and debated rather than as dogmatic commands from God to be understood and obeyed without question. Jude takes this same direction as his brother James regarding faith but focusing upon the fact that real faith contends for "the faith" (Jude 3). In James, faith that professes belief but does not become "doers of the word" is branded as false faith (James 1:22). In Jude, people who profess faith in God's Words but who do not "contend for the faith" are branded as unfaithful. Although Jude is considered more general in its application to Gentile Christians, the weight of its admonitions brings the pattern of the dogmatisms of Rabbinical Judaism into Christianity. Real faith contends "for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" (Jude 3) for their guardianship and dogmatic preservation of the doctrines ("the faith") established by those inspired God-words. Faith that does not fight for those doctrines ("the faith") is false faith. Unlike the philosophical faith of the Gentiles that resulted in endless debates but never thus sayeth the Lord, Jewish Christianity refused this early form of subjective relativism for dogmatic absolutism. In this kind of Christianity "the faith" was definable.
