    Jews are people who trace their origin back through the ancient Hebrews to Abraham. Follow the bloodline to Abraham. Others can adopt the Jewish religion but won't be considered a Jew. According to Paul, born again believers are children of Abraham by faith.

    Robert wallander: It is not anti-semitic. Many Jews of that time were vehemently anti-Christian and stirred up local authorities against them. While it was Roman soldiers who drove the nails into Christ's hands, it was surely the Jewish leaders that had him brought to trial. Further, Luke is typically accepted as the author of Acts, and whether he was a Greek physician or an Hellenic Jew...
  • Word
    Many people live in Jerusalem and other cities of Israel and called themselves Jews. When reading if you come across the word Jew look it up because you will see it means resident so it is not always what it appears to be.

    Subject of the Corinthians is to prepare the saints for what is coming in the future. Paul tells us in 2 Thess 2 that Satan will claim to be God and Daniel tells us Satan comes in peace and prosperity and this chapter tells us that Satan and his faller Angels come transformed which is disguised if you look it up. So you have instead of CHRIST coming saying he is CHRIST and his locust priest.

    To the comment below this makes these Jews Anti-Christian.

    Paul gives an account of the trials and struggles he went through for preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and he encourages the saints to remain focus on that gospel and not allow false doctrine to come in and confuse them.
