Notes on The Catholic Epistle of St. Jude the Apostle (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

1:9 Contended about the body, etc: This contention, which is no where else mentioned in holy writ, was originally known by revelation, and transmitted by tradition. It is thought the occasion of it was, that the devil would have had the body buried in such a place and manner, as to be worshipped by the Jews with divine honours. Command thee. . .or rebuke thee.
