In this episode Sven Longshanks and William Finck talk about the reason why Christ identified the Jews as ‘devils’ and how they could be responsible for all the innocent blood of the prophets going back to Abel.
This could only be if they were related in some way to Cain, who was a murderer from the beginning.
This ties in with all the references to Esau in the New Testament, since the remnant of the tribe of Judah that returned from Babylon had gone on to interbreed with and absorb the Edomites, who were descended from Esau.
A detailed history of this is given, with sources from the inter-testamental period and an explanation of why Esau was so hated by God.
He had married Canaanite women and thrown away his birthright in exchange for a morsel of flesh.
By the time of Christ, the Edomites had completely taken over the establishment, even the monarchy and the only Nationalist resistance were the Essenes, who just like today were at the fringes of society.
