No Further Revelation
Jesus told the disciples [John 16:13] that when the Spirit would come, He would lead them (the apostles) into all truth. No more truth was to be expected beyond what the apostles taught and recorded in the books of the New Testament. In 1 John 4:6, when discussing how to distinguish those who teach error from those who teach truth, John makes it plain that those who listen to the truth taught by the apostles are true teachers; those who do not are false teachers. The principle Jude sets forth is precisely the same; to them was given the once-for-all deposit of truth.
