Epistle of Jude

The Epistle of Jude shortened to Jude, is the penultimate book of the New Testament and the Bible as a whole and is traditionally attributed to Jude, the servant of Jesus and the brother of James the Just. The letter of Jude was one of the disputed books of the biblical canon; the links between the Epistle and 2 Peter, its use of the biblical apocrypha, its brevity raised concern. It is one of the shortest books in the Bible: only 1 chapter of 25 verses long; some early manuscripts containing the text of this epistle are: Papyrus 72 Papyrus 78 Codex Vaticanus Codex Sinaiticus Codex Alexandrinus Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus Jude urges his readers to defend the deposit of Christ's doctrine, closed by the time he wrote his epistle, to remember the words of the apostles spoken somewhat before. Jude asks the reader to recall how after the Lord saved his own people out of the land of Egypt, he did not hesitate to destroy those who fell into unbelief, much as he punished the angels who fell from their original exalted status and Sodom and Gomorrah.

He describes in vivid terms the apostates of his day. He exhorts believers to remember the words spoken by the Apostles, using language similar to the second epistle of Peter to answer concerns that the Lord seemed to tarry, How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts... and to keep themselves in God's love, before delivering a doxology. Jude quotes directly from the Book of Enoch, part of the scripture of the Ethiopian and Eritrean churches but rejected by other churches, he cites Enoch's prophecy that the Lord would come with many thousands of his saints to render judgment on the whole world. He paraphrases an incident in a text, lost about Satan and Michael the Archangel quarreling over the body of Moses. I. Salutation II. Occasion for the Letter A; the change of Subject B.

Conservative scholars date it between 70 and 90; some scholars consider the letter a pseudonymous work written between the end of the 1st century and the first quarter of the 2nd century because of its references to the apostles and to tradition and because of its competent Greek style."More remarkable is the evidence that by the end of the second century Jude was accepted as canonical." Clement of Alexandria and the Muratorian canon considered the letter canonical. The first historical record of doubts as to authorship are found in the writings of Origen of Alexandria, who spoke of the doubts held by some, albeit not him. Eusebius classified it with the "disputed writings, the antilegomena."

The letter was accepted as part of the Canon by Church Fathers such as Athanasius and the Synods of Laodicea and Carthage. The epistle title is written as follows: "Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James". "James" is taken to mean James the Just, a prominent leader in the early church. Not a lot is known of Jude, which would explain the apparent need to identify him by reference to his better-known brother; as the brother of James the Just, it has traditionally meant Jude was the brother of Jesus, since James is described as being the brother of Jesus. For instance Clement of Alexandria wrote in his work "Comments on the Epistle of Jude" that Jude, the Epistle of Jude's author, was a son of Joseph and a brother of Jesus. There is a dispute as to whether "brother" means someone who has the same father and mother, or a half-brother or cousin or more distant familial relationship; this dispute over the true meaning of "brother" grew. Outside the book of Jude, a "Jude" is mentioned five times in the New Testament: three times as Jude the Apostle, twice as Jude the brother of Jesus.

Debate continues as to whether the author of the epistle is both, or neither. Some scholars have argued that since the author of the letter has not identified himself as an apostle and refers to the apostles as a third party, he cannot be identified with Jude the Apostle. Others have drawn the opposite conclusion, i.e. that, as an apostle, he would not have made a claim of apostleship on his own behalf. The Epistle of Jude is a brief book of only a single chapter with 25 verses, it was composed as an encyclical letter—that is, one not directed to the members of one church in particular, but intended rather to be circulated and read in all churches. The wording and syntax of this epistle in its original Greek demonstrates that the author was capable and fluent; the epistle is addressed to Christians in general, it warns them about the doctrine of certain errant teachers to whom they were exposed. The epistle's style is combative and rushed. Many examples of evildoers and warnings about their fates are given in rapid s

Negligible function

In mathematics, a negligible function is a function μ: N → R such that for every positive integer c there exists an integer Nc such that for all x > Nc, | μ | < 1 x c. Equivalently, we may use the following definition. A function μ: N → R is negligible, if for every positive polynomial poly there exists an integer Npoly > 0 such that for all x > Npoly | μ | < 1 poly ⁡. The concept of negligibility can find its trace back to sound models of analysis. Though the concepts of "continuity" and "infinitesimal" became important in mathematics during Newton and Leibniz's time, they were not well-defined until the late 1810s; the first reasonably rigorous definition of continuity in mathematical analysis was due to Bernard Bolzano, who wrote in 1817 the modern definition of continuity. Cauchy and Heine defined as follows: A function f: R → R is continuous at x = x 0 if for every ε > 0, there exists a positive number δ > 0 such that | x − x 0 | < δ implies | f − f | < ε. This classic definition of continuity can be transformed into the definition of negligibility in a few steps by changing parameters used in the definition.

First, in the case x 0 = ∞ with f = 0, we must define the concept of "infinitesimal function": A continuous function μ: R → R is infinitesimal if for every ε > 0 there exists N ε such that for all x > N ε | μ | < ε. Next, we replace ε > 0 by the functions 1 / x c where c > 0 or by 1 / poly ⁡ where poly ⁡ is a positive polynomial. This leads to the definitions of negligible functions given at the top of this article. Since the constants ε > 0 can be expressed as 1 / poly ⁡ with a constant polynomial this shows that negligible functions are a subset of the infinitesimal functions. In complexity-based modern cryptography, a security scheme is provably secure if the probability of security failure is negligible in terms of the input x = cryptographic key length n. Hence comes the definition at the top of the page because key length n must be a natural number; the general notion of negligibility doesn't require that the input parameter x is the key length n. Indeed, x can be any predetermined system metric and corresponding mathematical analysis would illustrate some hidden analytical behaviors of the system.

The reciprocal-of-polynomial formulation is used for the same reason that computational boundedness is defined as polynomial running time: it has mathematical closure properties that make it tractable in the asymptotic setting. For example, if an attack succeeds in violating a security condition only with negligible probability, the attack is repeated a polynomial number of times, the success probability of the overall attack still remains negligible. In practice one might want to have more concrete functions bounding the adversary's success probability and to choose the security parameter large enough that this probability is smaller than some threshold, say 2−128. One of the reasons that negligible functions are u
