Comment posted by CL relating to 'Judeo-Christian' phraseology in the previous post.

John 8:44 New International Version (NIV)

"44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."
Who were the targets of this quote from Jesus?
Furthermore, when Jesus said repeatedly that "You killed the prophets......" who was he addressing?
As a former premillennialist (for 20+ years) I understand the problem well - I also included Israel in my 'last days' scenario.
Here is what I have learned - Jesus was addressing an apostasy and the 'future last days' put an end to it physically in the 70 AD destruction of the temple.
Long story which you can follow up at my website and more specifically at the blog archive - CAP Lessons. (See categories above)
