Now we review, going line by line to see how Jude 'wraps' around Peter, and also maybe refers to Book of Hebrews. Or, Hebrews elaborates on Jude, even as it elaborates on Peter (re priesthood, apostasy in latter days, angels, etc). Then you better understand the mocking tone of Mark's Gospel, which appears to come LAST among these four books.
This analysis matters, for when you see how obvious is this 'wrapping' technique (which today is called 'incorporation by reference', and is especially used with legal documents) -- you'll see how easy it is to disprove those Quelle ninnies who claim that Mark 'has priority' or is some kind of 'source' (=quelle, German) for the Synoptics. Just the opposite: even as Jude is wrapping around Peter and as a result is SHORTER than Peter, so too Mark is wrapping around Matthew and Luke, so therefore is SHORTER than either one. Duh.
See also my Synoptics playlist for more proof from within the Gospels themselves.
Honestly, some 'scholars' degrees should be revoked.
