Part 6 of 6. Focus here is on Jude's trebled dateline meter in verses 1-2, which is also how he ends the chapter: last two verses are 90 syllables, not covered in this video, so count the syllables yourself. This metering matters, as the opening two verses are 114 syllables, which is a pregnant metric sum in Daniel 9 and in Ephesians 1:3-14. Also, the 'date' results in the earliest scholarly date for Jude, being supported (Bible's own 66 AD = 'our' 68AD, owing to a 2-year variance versus Roman accounting, which the Bible writers appear to use).
Because, God uses the same syllable sum in Daniel 9:25-26; 114 is the number of days from beginning of Passover to 9th Ab, which was the same exact number of days (beginning ON Passover) as actually used by Titus to overrun Jerusalem in 70 AD. Obviously that similarity would have been very pregnant to Jews and Gentiles in Jude's audience. Isaiah 53 used it also.
90, is a 'quarter' of a year. Paul's meter keys 4x to 91, to make a solar year, in Eph 1:3-14. So clearly Jude is playing to that meter. Is Peter doing the same, and the writer of Hebrews, too? I've not yet checked those books for meter, to know.
Video ends with revisiting whether Jude precedes or succeeds the Book of Hebrews. No firm conclusion.
