My Note:  Ye are of your father the Devil Ref. Scripture John 8:44-45

"Ye are of your father the Devil", Christ said to the Jews

Scripture:   John 8:44 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.
45  And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

Most Christians don't believe Christ meant this literally; they believe him not!
Just as he said we wouldn't!

2nd scripture John 8:31  ÂThen said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
33  They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

If the above underlined statement is true then these Jews knew they were not descendants of the 12 sons of Jocob/Israel because the Israelites were indeed slaves in Egypt. It is true of these particular Jews because they were descendants of Cain who had attached themselves to the Jews of Judah but were not of Judah.

34  Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
35  And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
36  If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
37  I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
38  ÂI 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. 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.
45  And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

Fellow Christian, are you paying attention! If you do not know what really happened in the first few chapters of Genesis and especially in garden of Eden you will never truly understand the rest of God's Word.
They were the descendants of Cain, who was not Adam's son, but rather the Devil's son just as Christ said in verse John 8:44.
