    Jews in the new testamnet are Edomites, they inhabited Judea after this. This is who Jesus called sons of the devil and liars and murderers. The small number of Israelites remaining in Judea heard Jesus word and followed him. Edomites descend from Esau who God hated.

    The Lord God put before us the blessing or curse. King of Israel choose a curse worshipping false gods.
