Its a very short and poetic epistle about false teachers plus it has two references to non canonical literature that absolutelly fascinate me to no end.
9Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!"
14Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, "Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, 15to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."
Revelation (no, not for Dispensational reasons!)
I know I will show my true liberalism concerning bible versions, Blade, but I tend to use the RSV due its poetic nature. Granted, its study notes operate on a naturalistic epistemology, but when it comes to the poetic books of the bible (and Revelation) it is beautiful, kinda like a cobra--deadly, but fascinating at times.
The fact that this is even a thought that passes through our heads points to the truth that God's ways are higher and better than ours. If we truly believe in the sufficiency and inspiration of Scripture we realize to be without any portion of Scripture would leave us lacking something God gave us to understand him more fully.
Craig- I was an honest, questioning Dispensationalist for years. The thought of it being easy to cast off Scripture books was never there for me or anyone I knew.
If I had to pick which book of the Bible is needed most at the present hour, I'd have to say 1 John. But, there I go again committing heresy. We need ALL of God's Word for ALL of life.
