Why do we Christians not understand "Jew" is never used to describe anyone from "The House of Israel" (the other 10 tribes of Israelites) in all of the Bible.
Kings 16:5 Then Rezin king of Syria and Pekah son of Remaliah
king of Israel came up to Jerusalem to
war: and they besieged Ahaz, but could not
6 At that time Rezin king of Syria recovered Elath to Syria, and drave the Jews from Elath: and the Syrians came to Elath, and dwelt there unto this day.
This is the first time the description "Jews" is used, in the Bible, to identify the Judahites as opposed to the people from the House of Israel.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
