      My recent PhD student, Philip Mayo, wrote his dissertation on Revelation and
      the Jews. It has now been published by Wipf and Stock in the Princeton
      Monograph Series. He has a discussion of these complex issues; of course,
      there is a fairly large literature on this. Personally, I take "Jews" here
      to mean "ethnic Jews."

      I was wondering if the group could give the understanding of Rev 2:9; 3:9.
      Spacifically if the identity of "Jews" is of ethnic origin = children from
      the whole house of Israel.

      This could be according to the historical evidences / documents we have at
      the time
      the book of Revelation was given to John; or the church age as a whole.

      Rev 2:9
      I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and [I
      know] the
      blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but [are] the
      synagogue of Satan.

      Rev 3:9
      Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews,
      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.

      Thank you, I will read the replies in the digest.
