  The reason that they’re called the Catholic Epistles or the Universal Epistles is because none of these is addressed to one person or one particular church. By contrast, most of St. Paul’s Epistles are written to one church, e.g., the Church in Rome, the Church in Corinth, the Church in Ephesus, the Church in Philippi. The Catholic Epistles and Apostolic Tradition asks two questions: Can the Catholic Epistles from James to Jude be fruitfully examined in relation to each other, without contrasting them with the Pauline Epistles? And, if so, will we learn something new about them and early Christianity? The essayists here answer “yes” and “yes,” offering provocative perspectives on James, the Johannine Author: Karl-Wilhelm Niebuhr, Robert W. Wall.

For many Christians and believers of all faith traditions, the nine books explored in The Catholic Epistles, Hebrews, and Revelation are the least-known parts of the New Testament. This book also presents eleven even less-known, important extracanonical writings produced during roughly the same period as those included in the Bible.5/5(2).

The epistle of James is one of the earliest New Testament books and was written by James, the half-brother of Jesus (1 Corinthians ). Peter wrote 1 and 2 Peter. John, the same author of the Gospel of John and Revelation, wrote John.

The other seven letters of the New Testament that follow the Pauline corpus are collectively referred to as the “Catholic Epistles.” This term, which means “universal,” refers to the fact that most of them are directed not to a single Christian community, as are most of the Pauline letters, but to a wider audience; see the Introduction.

Catholic Epistle, the name given to the Epistle of St. James, to that of St. Jude, to two Epistles of St. Peter and the first three of St. John, because, unlike the Epistles of St. Paul, they were addressed not to any particular person or church, but to the faithful generally after the manner of an Encyclical letter.

Though addressed to particular persons the other two Epistles of St. John are also styled Catholic. The General Epistles, also known as the Catholic Epistles, are the seven New Testament letters written by James, Peter, John, and Jude.

These epistles, with the exceptions of 2 and 3 John, are addressed to a general audience of believers rather than to a specific church. The Epistles of the Bible are the 21 books in the New Testament that constitute formal letters of instruction from elders to leaders and members of the new Christian church.
