So when I say that Jesus teaches us that the Jews are the children of the Devil, quoting John 8:44, you think it’s a new and strange thing? Well, think again, I just discovered that Martin Luther, Father of the Protestant Reformation and Founder of Lutheranism, thought much the same thing. Look at this quote from one of the books he wrote late in his life: Martin Luther’s The Jews and their Lies (1543): “in John 8 [:39,44] he states: ‘You are of your father the devil.’ It was intolerable to them [“the Jews”] to hear that they were not Abraham’s but the devil’s children, nor can they bear to hear this today.’” Any questions?
