    No. Besides neither of these probably having existed, the author never CLAIMS to be the brother of Jesus nor was the book attributed such by anyone until the 4-5th century.

    The matter is disputed.

    The correct answer to your question is: "No one on Earth knows."

    Yes. Therefore, Jude, was evidently a half brother of Christ Jesus. Mt 13:55 Please read Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?Yet humbly he did not seek to capitalize on his fleshly relationship to the Son of God but calls himself “a slave of Jesus Christ.”

    One of Jesus’ four half brothers. Mt 13:55; Mr 6:3

    The opening words tell us that the letter was written by “Jude, a slave of Jesus Christ, but a brother of James.

    Moreover, he calls himself “a brother of James,” evidently meaning the writer of the letter of James, who was a half brother of Jesus.

    This James was well-known, and hence Jude identifies himself with him. This makes Jude also a half brother of Jesus, and he is listed as such. Gal. 1:19

    However, Jude did not make capital of his fleshly relationship with Jesus

    I doubt it. None of the other books were written during his lifetime.
