The people who bear the name of Jews today are commonly regarded by the denominational churches as the legitimate and whole chosen people of Scripture. This is of course utterly erroneous on several levels, and here we will expose the nature of these devilish falsehoods.
The greater portion of Israel never had any part in the tribe of Judah, the Kingdom of Judah or the province of Judaea, and none of them were ever called Jews. The vast majority of the children of Israel left Egypt and Western Asia between 3,600-2,700 years ago to fulfill the promise to Jacob-Israel that his “seed” would “become many nations” and “a company of nations”.

Nonetheless the prevailing narrative among most Christians today is that the Jews of today are the offspring of Judah, and that this supposed house of Judah is the only remnant of racial Israelites left in the world.
This of course puzzles many people, for these Jews have historically been enemies of Christianity and every bastion of Christian morality in the West. Could the elect people chosen by God truly be a race of usurers, pornography producers, human traffickers, blasphemers, blood drinkers, thieves, and ritual murderers?
Most certainly not. The Jews of today are neither Judahites nor Israelites but are a racial conglomeration of Kenites, Canaanites and Edomites. They are primarily descended from the Edomites who were conquered converted and integrated into Judaea in 125 BC by John Hyrcanus.
This is attested to in Josephus’ Antiquities of the Judaeans, (13:257-258, 13:395-397 et al.) and Strabo’s Geography (book 16) as well as later sources such as the Biblical Encyclopedia, Vol. 2. Here are a few notable references:
“257Hyrcanus took also Dora and Marissa, cities of Idumea [formerly cities of Manasseh and Judah respectively], and subdued all the Idumeans; and permitted them to stay in that country, if they would circumcise their genitals, and make use of the laws of the Judeans; 258and they were so desirous of living in the country of their forefathers, that they submitted to the use of circumcision, and of the rest of the Judean ways of living; at which time therefore this befell them, that they were hereafter no other than Judeans.”
-Josephus, Antiquities of the Judaeans, 13.257-258
“34 As for Judaea, its western extremities towards Casius are occupied by the Idumaeans and by the lake. The Idumaeans are Nabataeans, but owing to a sedition they were banished from there, joined the Judaeans, and shared in the same customs with them.”
-Strabo, Geography, 16.2.34
“Indeed the Edomites later became completely absorbed in Jewry and under their aggressive intrusion the Jews became racially the medium of expression for the Edomite ideal for which Herod the Great had first given political formation. The Edomite intrusion into Judaism at every historical point of contact is fully discussed in the volumes of the Cambridge Ancient History.”
-Biblica Encyclopedia, vol. 2, col. 1187
King Herod and the entire Herodian dynasty were Edomites by race, and this is affirmed many times in the writings of Flavius Josephus (Antiquities 14.3, 12.8 et al.). These Edomites had risen to the peaks of power in Judaea through murder of the Hasmonean dynasty and by bribing Mark Antony.
These Edomites were ancestral foes of Israel who had mingled with the cursed Canaanites who in turn had mingled with the Kenites (the offspring of Cain and the mysterious women of Nod), the Rephaim (giants descended from the Nephilim), the Kadmonites, the Perizzites and other cursed tribes without a lineage from Seth.

‘The Origins of the Serpent Seed’
‘The Origins of the Non-Adamic Races’
For an understanding of where God stands concerning Esau-Edom see Malachi 1:2-3 and the book of Obadiah. The Edomites are one of the most cursed tribes of Scripture and their eventual utter destruction is prophecied in the book of Obadiah.
The Edomites descended from Abraham’s race-mixing grandson Esau, and on their maternal side they descended from a conglomeration of non-Adamic tribes which the Edomites had been joined to since their first generation. Esau-Edom had fallen from a high place as the firstborn of Isaac to a lowly place as the most despised nation of Scripture because of his fornication.
The Edomites were of a vile spirit after their profane, idolatrous fornicating ancestors and so they would naturally be opposed to the gospel of Christ, but they had other reasons for despising Christ’s ministry.
The Edomites had only recently solidified their power in Judaea but were well on their way to complete racial and political domination of Judaea. Esau has long coveted Jacob’s covenant with God, and has constantly sought to do harm to Israel.
“41And Esau was angry with Jacob because of the blessing, with which his father blessed him; and Esau said in his mind, Let the days of my father’s mourning draw nigh, that I may slay my brother Jacob.”
A religious reformation in Judaea threatened their newly found dominance of Judaism and all they had murdered and bribed to achieve. Thus these infiltrators were zealous enemies of Christ and his followers by necessity.
These Edomitish enemies of Christ are the false Judaeans which John warned the assembly at Smyrna about in Revelation 2.9 and 3.9:
“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Judeans, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”
“Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Judeans, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.”
There is only one people who gathers in synagogues and who claim to be Judaeans. Thus the identity of the guilty party is obvious.
Throughout the New Testament these Edomite Judaeans are referred to as “offspring (Strong’s G1081) of vipers” (Matthew 3:7, Luke 3.7, Matthew 23:33 etc.). This is a clear reference to Genesis 3.15:
“15 I will put enmities between thee (the serpent) and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.”
In Matthew 23.35 Christ accuses their race (genean, Strong’s G1074) of the spilled blood of Abel:
“29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
33 Ye serpents, ye offspring [G1081] of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this race [genean, G1074].”
The Scriptures do not inform us of how the prophets each died, but on occasions when the priests of God are murdered we see characters such as Jezebel the Canaanitess or Doeg the Edomite responsible.
Christ holds their race responsible for all the righteous blood shed upon the earth from Abel unto Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist. This links one race from Cain in Eden to the 1st century Judaeans.
Christ was speaking to the scribes and Pharisees. The Pharisees were a mix of Israelites and Edomites like the rest of the 1st century Judaeans, but the scribes may have had among them Kenites, as some Kenites (sons of Cain) had been employed as scribes by the Judahites even before the Edomites began to be absorbed into Judaea (1 Chronicles 2.55).
The Kenites had become absorbed into the Canaanite nations at an early time, and Esau-Edom had become absorbed partially into the Canaanites, thus all three tribal groups carried some of Cain’s DNA. It is also likely that many of the Judaean elders were Canaanites themselves (Susanna 1.56) and so it’s possible all three cursed lineages had direct descendants in the 1st century Judaean populace, particularly among scribes and Pharisees. Thus Christ rightly accuses their brood of shedding the blood of Abel and Zacharias, and of all the righteous priests of God.
In John chapter 8 Christ tells this race in no uncertain terms that they are descended from the Devil:
“38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father [the Edomites and bastardized Judahites indeed descended paternally from Abraham]. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my Word.
44 Ye are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
After Jesus states that they have a different father than his own and that theirs is the Devil these Judaeans are immediately defensive saying “we are not born of fornication”. This indicates that they well knew that he was referring to their ancestry. He continues to affirm his accusation by saying that their father is the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning. These Judaean’s denial of their bastardized heritage in verse 41 is a reference to Malachi 2 where we find that Judah has married the daughter of a strange God.
“10Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why then doth every one of us despise his brother, violating the covenant of our fathers?
11Juda hath transgressed, and abomination hath been committed in Israel, and in Jerusalem: for Juda hath profaned the holiness of the Lord, which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god.
12The Lord will cut off the man that hath done this, both the master, and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Jacob, and him that offereth an offering to the Lord of hosts.”
This of course refers to the mingling of the sons of Judah with the daughters of Canaan who indeed descended in part from the devil’s brood. Thus Jesus rightly tells them they do the deeds of their father the devil. One may descend paternally from the patriarchs but if one is born of fornication they are cut off and belong to the devil.
‘Fornication, Adultery and Idolatry: a Biblical Case Against Miscegenation’
In Romans chapter 9 Paul discusses these circumstances concerning the Edomites at some length. He first expresses his concern “for the brethren” his “kinsmen in regards to the flesh: those who are Israelites” in verses 1-5.
“I speak the truth among the Anointed, I lie not, my conscience bearing witness with me in the Holy Spirit, 2 that grief for me is great, and distress incessant in my heart, 3 for I have prayed that I myself would be accursed from the Anointed for the brethren, my kinsmen in regards to the flesh; 4 those who are Israelites, whose is the position of sons, and the honor, and the covenants, and the legislation, and the service, and the promises; 5 whose are the fathers; and of whom are the Anointed in regards to the flesh, being over all blessed of God for the ages. Truly.”
He then goes on to say that “not all those who are from Israel are those of Israel” in verse 6 and relates this to the enduring posterity of Isaac which was found not in Esau but Jacob who diligently sought a Shemitic wife while Esau married Canaanites.
