All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
Jesus to the Jews
“I know that you are Abraham’s descendants; yet you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you. I speak the things which I have seen
with My Father; therefore you also do the things which you heard from your father.”
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
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" John 8:37-42
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. John 8:44
“He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT OF GOD.” John 8:47
I mean, how much clearer can the message get?
There is no reading between the lines.
Moreover, when Christ uses the words, "God" and "Father", not once does he ever say, "Yahweh/Jehovah".
In fact, the name, "Yahweh/Jehovah" NEVER even appears in the "New Testament" at all.
It does show, in early Christian Apocrypha, however, quite regularly, as the name of the demi-urge, Satan.
Not surprisingly, these texts were deliberately omitted from the Judaizer's canon.
Oh, and incidentally, those Christians protesting this course of Judaization were slaughtered by the thousands in the style of the martyrdom of Christ
and His Apostles -- see Marcionites, Cathars, etc...
