Uncovering the gems of the ?Catholic Epistles? (1): James and Jude

The New Testament contains twenty-seven writings. Prominent among these are the four gospels, which offer related yet distinct portraits of Jesus' life and ministry, culminating with the account of his passion, death, and resurrection. The Acts of the Apostles, the longest text in the New Testament, then sets forth the story of the Spirit-empowered early Church. The next thirteen writings are letters - to churches and to individuals - attributed to the apostle Paul, the tireless missionary, who also lays claim to being the Church's first great theologian. The Pauline writings are followed by the theologically-laden homiletic treatise called the letter to the Hebrews. The New Testament closes with the book of Revelation, which reveals the words of the risen Jesus and concludes with the glorious vision of God the Father and Christ dwelling in the midst of saved humanity.
