Impression Jesus Created on Jewish Mind: Jesus’ Uncivil Language
The causes which led the Jews to take up cudgels against Jesus may be listed as below:
The sharpness and acrimony in his speech had reached such a high pitch that it proved too much for the Jews to put up with it. A few examples may be cited: Jesus said unto the Jews that they were not the children of Adam, but the brood of the Devil. This statement was highly provocative and painful.
Jesus addressed the Jews over and over again, calling them Serpents and a generation of vipers; hypocrites; and evil and adulterous generation, etc., and proclaimed that they would be smitten with distress and destruction of every kind in this world, and the damnation of hell in the hereafter.
