The Greek word which is translated as “brother”, “brethren”, or “brother’s” 346 times in the New Testament is always a reference to those of the womb of Rebecah, and never anyone else, certainly never “other” as some churches teach today.  The word is a contraction of the particle “a” which is “from” and “delphus” which is “the womb”, and the womb in the case of the House of Israel is Rebecah’s womb.

 

Even though Esau was of the same womb, God hated Esau and cut him out of his everlasting covenant, so his descendants the Edomites are never considered “brethren”, but instead God “hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness”.

So even though Esau was from the same womb and would ordinarily be a brethren to Israelites, he was cut out of the covenant.

 

<<<If we say we love God but hate others we are liars

  St John said, "If we say we love God, but hate others, we are liars. For we cannot love God, whom we have not seen, if we do not love others, whom we have seen."(1 John 4:20 TEV)>>>

 

This word NEVER means “others” as it was translated in the above TEV, and in fact those who mistranslate it this way are the ones who HATE the Word of God, HATE God’s Everlasting Covenant with Abraham through Jacob, and HATE all pure descendants of Rebecah’s womb.
