The Errors of Certain Jews

Consider these verses where our Blessed Lord rebukes the Jews for these major errors:

“They answered and said to Him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you are Abraham’s children, do the deeds of Abraham.

“But as it is, you are seeking to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth, which I heard from God; this Abraham did not do.

“You are doing the deeds of your father.” They said to Him, “We were not born of fornication; we have one Father: God.”

Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me.

“Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word.

“You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

“But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me.” (John 8:39 – 45)


Note the particular point that “Abraham did not do” (means it doesn’t reflect the faithful deeds & character of Faithful Patriarch Abraham) as compared to the ‘deeds of the Jews which were wrong’ such as (because the Lord analogously states these equivalent traits of “such Jews” and “not” all Jews to what the devil does & influences them to do namely):

(i) Murder
(ii) Lies
(iii) Rejecting Christ, Rejecting the Father
(iv) Unable to understand Christ’s Blessed Words
(v) Rejecting the Truth
(vi) Unbelief
