Who are the "jews" of the Holy Bible?


Ezra 4:12 Ezra 4 Ezra 4:11-13 The king should know that the Jews who came up to us from you have gone to Jerusalem and are rebuilding that rebellious and wicked city. They are restoring the walls and repairing the foundations.

Ezra 4:23 Ezra 4 Ezra 4:22-24 As soon as the copy of the letter of King Artaxerxes was read to Rehum and Shimshai the secretary and their associates, they went immediately to the Jews in Jerusalem and compelled them by force to stop.

Ezra 5:1 Ezra 5 Ezra 5:1-2 Now Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the prophet, a descendant of Iddo, prophesied to the Jews in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, who was over them.

Nehemiah 4:1 Nehemiah 4 Nehemiah 4:1-2 When Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall, he became angry and was greatly incensed. He ridiculed the Jews,

Nehemiah 4:2 Nehemiah 4 Nehemiah 4:1-3 and in the presence of his associates and the army of Samaria, he said, "What are those feeble Jews doing? Will they restore their wall? Will they offer sacrifices? Will they finish in a day? Can they bring the stones back to life from those heaps of rubble--burned as they are?"

Nehemiah 4:12 Nehemiah 4 Nehemiah 4:11-13 Then the Jews who lived near them came and told us ten times over, "Wherever you turn, they will attack us."

Nehemiah 5:17 Nehemiah 5 Nehemiah 5:16-18 Furthermore, a hundred and fifty Jews and officials ate at my table, as well as those who came to us from the surrounding nations.

Nehemiah 6:6 Nehemiah 6 Nehemiah 6:5-7 in which was written: "It is reported among the nations--and Geshem says it is true--that you and the Jews are plotting to revolt, and therefore you are building the wall. Moreover, according to these reports you are about to become their

Esther 3:6 Esther 3 Esther 3:5-7 Yet having learned who Mordecai's people were, he scorned the idea of killing only Mordecai. Instead Haman looked for a way to destroy all Mordecai's people, the Jews, throughout the whole kingdom of Xerxes.

Esther 3:10 Esther 3 Esther 3:9-11 So the king took his signet ring from his finger and gave it to Haman son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, the enemy of the Jews.

Esther 3:13 Esther 3 Esther 3:12-14 Dispatches were sent by couriers to all the king's provinces with the order to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews--young and old, women and little children--on a single day, the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, the month of Adar, and to plunder their goods.

Esther 4:3 Esther 4 Esther 4:2-4 In every province to which the edict and order of the king came, there was great mourning among the Jews, with fasting, weeping and wailing. Many lay in sackcloth and ashes.

Esther 4:7 Esther 4 Esther 4:6-8 Mordecai told him everything that had happened to him, including the exact amount of money Haman had promised to pay into the royal treasury for the destruction of the Jews.

Esther 4:13 Esther 4 Esther 4:12-14 he sent back this answer: "Do not think that because you are in the king's house you alone of all the Jews will escape.

Esther 4:14 Esther 4 Esther 4:13-15 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father's family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?"

Esther 4:16 Esther 4 Esther 4:15-17 "Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maids will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish."

Esther 8:1 Esther 8 Esther 8:1-2 That same day King Xerxes gave Queen Esther the estate of Haman, the enemy of the Jews. And Mordecai came into the presence of the king, for Esther had told how he was related to her.

Esther 8:3 Esther 8 Esther 8:2-4 Esther again pleaded with the king, falling at his feet and weeping. She begged him to put an end to the evil plan of Haman the Agagite, which he had devised against the Jews.

Esther 8:9 Esther 8 Esther 8:8-10 At once the royal secretaries were summoned--on the twenty-third day of the third month, the month of Sivan. They wrote out all Mordecai's orders to the Jews, and to the satraps, governors and nobles of the 127 provinces stretching from India to Cush. These orders were written in the script of each province and the language of each people and also to the Jews in their own script and language.

Esther 8:13 Esther 8 Esther 8:12-14 A copy of the text of the edict was to be issued as law in every province and made known to the people of every nationality so that the Jews would be ready on that day to avenge themselves on their enemies.

Esther 8:16 Esther 8 Esther 8:15-17 For the Jews it was a time of happiness and joy, gladness and honor.

{Editor's note: it was the killing of gentiles which the jews are celebrating here.}

Esther 8:17 Esther 8 Esther 8:16-18 In every province and in every city, wherever the edict of the king went, there was joy and gladness among the Jews, with feasting and celebrating. And many people of other nationalities became Jews because fear of the Jews had seized them.

Esther 9:5 Esther 9 Esther 9:4-6 The Jews struck down all their enemies with the sword, killing and destroying them, and they did what they pleased to those who hated them.

Esther 9:6 Esther 9 Esther 9:5-7 In the citadel of Susa, the Jews killed and destroyed five hundred men.

Esther 9:10 Esther 9 Esther 9:9-11 the ten sons of Haman son of Hammedatha, the enemy of the Jews. But they did not lay their hands on the plunder.

Esther 9:12 Esther 9 Esther 9:11-13 The king said to Queen Esther, "The Jews have killed and destroyed five hundred men and the ten sons of Haman in the citadel of Susa. What have they done in the rest of the king's provinces? Now what is your petition? It will be given you. What is your request? It will also be granted."

Esther 9:13 Esther 9 Esther 9:12-14 "If it pleases the king," Esther answered, "give the Jews in Susa permission to carry out this day's edict tomorrow also, and let Haman's ten sons be hanged on gallows."

Esther 9:15 Esther 9 Esther 9:14-16 The Jews in Susa came together on the fourteenth day of the month of Adar, and they put to death in Susa three hundred men, but they did not lay their hands on the plunder.

Esther 9:16 Esther 9 Esther 9:15-17 Meanwhile, the remainder of the Jews who were in the king's provinces also assembled to protect themselves and get relief from their enemies. They killed seventy-five thousand of them but did not lay their hands on the plunder.

Esther 9:18 Esther 9 Esther 9:17-19 The Jews in Susa, however, had assembled on the thirteenth and fourteenth, and then on the fifteenth they rested and made it a day of feasting and joy.

Esther 9:19 Esther 9 Esther 9:18-20 That is why rural Jews--those living in villages--observe the fourteenth of the month of Adar as a day of joy and feasting, a day for giving presents to each other.

Esther 9:20 Esther 9 Esther 9:19-21 Mordecai recorded these events, and he sent letters to all the Jews throughout the provinces of King Xerxes, near and far,

Esther 9:22 Esther 9 Esther 9:21-23 as the time when the Jews got relief from their enemies, and as the month when their sorrow was turned into joy and their mourning into a day of celebration. He wrote them to observe the days as days of feasting and joy and giving presents of food to one another and gifts to the poor.

Jeremiah 32:12 Jeremiah 32 Jeremiah 32:11-13 and I gave this deed to Baruch son of Neriah, the son of Mahseiah, in the presence of my cousin Hanamel and of the witnesses who had signed the deed and of all the Jews sitting in the courtyard of the guard.

Jeremiah 38:19 Jeremiah 38 Jeremiah 38:18-20 King Zedekiah said to Jeremiah, "I am afraid of the Jews who have gone over to the Babylonians, for the Babylonians may hand me over to them and they will mistreat me."

Jeremiah 40:11 Jeremiah 40 Jeremiah 40:10-12 When all the Jews in Moab, Ammon, Edom and all the other countries heard that the king of Babylon had left a remnant in Judah and had appointed Gedaliah son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, as governor over them,

Jeremiah 40:15 Jeremiah 40 Jeremiah 40:14-16 Then Johanan son of Kareah said privately to Gedaliah in Mizpah, "Let me go and kill Ishmael son of Nethaniah, and no one will know it. Why should he take your life and cause all the Jews who are gathered around you to be scattered and the remnant of Judah to perish?"

Jeremiah 41:3 Jeremiah 41 Jeremiah 41:2-4 Ishmael also killed all the Jews who were with Gedaliah at Mizpah, as well as the Babylonian soldiers who were there.

Jeremiah 44:1 Jeremiah 44 Jeremiah 44:1-2 This word came to Jeremiah concerning all the Jews living in Lower Egypt--in Migdol, Tahpanhes and Memphis --and in Upper Egypt :

Jeremiah 44:27 Jeremiah 44 Jeremiah 44:26-28 For I am watching over them for harm, not for good; the Jews in Egypt will perish by sword and famine until they are all destroyed.

Daniel 3:8 Daniel 3 Daniel 3:7-9 At this time some astrologers came forward and denounced the Jews.

Daniel 3:12 Daniel 3 Daniel 3:11-13 But there are some Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon--Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego--who pay no attention to you, O king. They neither serve your gods nor worship the image of gold you have set up."

Matthew 27:29 Matthew 27 Matthew 27:28-30 and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand and knelt in front of him and mocked him. "Hail, king of the Jews!" they said.

Matthew 27:37 Matthew 27 Matthew 27:36-38 Above his head they placed the written charge against him: THIS IS JESUS, THE KING OF THE JEWS.

Matthew 28:15 Matthew 28 Matthew 28:14-16 So the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the Jews to this very day.

Mark 7:3 Mark 7 Mark 7:2-4 (The Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they give their hands a ceremonial washing, holding to the tradition of the elders.

{Editor's note: the "tradition of the elders" is the forerunner to the Talmud which was written several centuries AD}

Mark 15:9 Mark 15 Mark 15:8-10 "Do you want me to release to you the king of the Jews?" asked Pilate,

Mark 15:12 Mark 15 Mark 15:11-13 "What shall I do, then, with the one you call the king of the Jews?" Pilate asked them.

Luke 7:3 Luke 7 Luke 7:2-4 The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant.

Luke 7:17 Luke 7 Luke 7:16-18 This news about Jesus spread throughout Judea and the surrounding country.

Luke 23:5 Luke 23 Luke 23:4-6 But they insisted, "He stirs up the people all over Judea by his teaching. He started in Galilee and has come all the way here."

Luke 23:37 Luke 23 Luke 23:36-38 and said, "If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself."

John 1:19 John 1 John 1:18-20 Now this was John's testimony when the Jews of Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was.

John 2:6 John 2 John 2:5-7 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.

John 2:18 John 2 John 2:17-19 Then the Jews demanded of him, "What miraculous sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?"

John 2:20 John 2 John 2:19-21 The Jews replied, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?"

{Editor's note:  the "jews" are questioning Jesus Christ's authority}

John 3:25 John 3 John 3:24-26 An argument developed between some of John's disciples and a certain Jew over the matter of ceremonial washing.

John 4:9 John 4 John 4:8-10 The Samaritan woman said to him, "You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?" (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans. )

John 4:20 John 4 John 4:19-21 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem."

John 4:22 John 4 John 4:21-23 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews.

John 5:1 John 5 John 5:1-2 Some time later, Jesus went up to Jerusalem for a feast of the Jews.

John 5:10 John 5 John 5:9-11 and so the Jews said to the man who had been healed, "It is the Sabbath; the law forbids you to carry your mat."

John 5:15 John 5 John 5:14-16 The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.

John 5:16 John 5 John 5:15-17 So, because Jesus was doing these things on the Sabbath, the Jews persecuted him.

John 5:18 John 5 John 5:17-19 For this reason the Jews tried all the harder to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.

{Editor's note: it was only "the jews" who tried to kill Christ, not the "gentiles" whom the Talmud condemns}

John 6:41 John 6 John 6:40-42 At this the Jews began to grumble about him because he said, "I am the bread that came down from heaven."

John 6:52 John 6 John 6:51-53 Then the Jews began to argue sharply among themselves, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?"

John 7:1 John 7 John 7:1-2 After this, Jesus went around in Galilee, purposely staying away from Judea because the Jews there were waiting to take his life.

{Editor's note:  why would Christ be safer in Galilee than in Judea.  Could it be because there were no "jews" there?}

John 7:11 John 7 John 7:10-12 Now at the Feast the Jews were watching for him and asking, "Where is that man?"

John 7:13 John 7 John 7:12-14 But no one would say anything publicly about him for fear of the Jews.

{Editor's note:  if "no one would say anything", then the jews must have been a small minority}

John 7:15 John 7 John 7:14-16 The Jews were amazed and asked, "How did this man get such learning without having studied?"

John 7:35 John 7 John 7:34-36 The Jews said to one another, "Where does this man intend to go that we cannot find him? Will he go where our people live scattered among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks?

John 8:22 John 8 John 8:21-23 This made the Jews ask, "Will he kill himself? Is that why he says, `Where I go, you cannot come'?"

John 8:31 John 8 John 8:30-32 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.

John 8:48 John 8 John 8:47-49 The Jews answered him, "Aren't we right in saying that you are a Samaritan and demon-possessed?"

John 8:52 John 8 John 8:51-53 At this the Jews exclaimed, "Now we know that you are demon-possessed! Abraham died and so did the prophets, yet you say that if anyone keeps your word, he will never taste death.

John 8:57 John 8 John 8:56-58 "You are not yet fifty years old," the Jews said to him, "and you have seen Abraham!"

John 9:18 John 9 John 9:17-19 The Jews still did not believe that he had been blind and had received his sight until they sent for the man's parents.

John 9:22 John 9 John 9:21-23 His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jews, for already the Jews had decided that anyone who acknowledged that Jesus was the Christ would be put out of the synagogue.

John 10:19 John 10 John 10:18-20 At these words the Jews were again divided.

John 10:24 John 10 John 10:23-25 The Jews gathered around him, saying, "How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly."

John 10:31 John 10 John 10:30-32 Again the Jews picked up stones to stone him,

John 10:33 John 10 John 10:32-34 "We are not stoning you for any of these," replied the Jews, "but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God."

John 11:8 John 11 John 11:7-9 "But Rabbi," they said, "a short while ago the Jews tried to stone you, and yet you are going back there?"

John 11:19 John 11 John 11:18-20 and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them in the loss of their brother.

John 11:31 John 11 John 11:30-32 When the Jews who had been with Mary in the house, comforting her, noticed how quickly she got up and went out, they followed her, supposing she was going to the tomb to mourn there.

John 11:33 John 11 John 11:32-34 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled.

John 11:36 John 11 John 11:35-37 Then the Jews said, "See how he loved him!"

John 11:45 John 11 John 11:44-46 Therefore many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what Jesus did, put their faith in him.

John 11:54 John 11 John 11:53-55 Therefore Jesus no longer moved about publicly among the Jews. Instead he withdrew to a region near the desert, to a village called Ephraim, where he stayed with his disciples.

John 12:9 John 12 John 12:8-10 Meanwhile a large crowd of Jews found out that Jesus was there and came, not only because of him but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead.

John 12:11 John 12 John 12:10-12 for on account of him many of the Jews were going over to Jesus and putting their faith in him.

John 13:33 John 13 John 13:32-34 "My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.

John 18:14 John 18 John 18:13-15 Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jews that it would be good if one man died for the people.

John 18:20 John 18 John 18:19-21 "I have spoken openly to the world," Jesus replied. "I always taught in synagogues or at the temple, where all the Jews come together. I said nothing in secret.

John 18:28 John 18 John 18:27-29 Then the Jews led Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman governor. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness the Jews did not enter the palace; they wanted to be able to eat the Passover.

John 18:31 John 18 John 18:30-32 Pilate said, "Take him yourselves and judge him by your own law." "But we have no right to execute anyone," the Jews objected.

John 18:33 John 18 John 18:32-34 Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?"

John 18:36 John 18 John 18:35-37 Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place."

John 18:38 John 18 John 18:37-39 "What is truth?" Pilate asked. With this he went out again to the Jews and said, "I find no basis for a charge against him.

John 18:39 John 18 John 18:38-40 But it is your custom for me to release to you one prisoner at the time of the Passover. Do you want me to release `the king of the Jews'?"

John 19:3 John 19 John 19:2-4 and went up to him again and again, saying, "Hail, king of the Jews!" And they struck him in the face.

John 19:4 John 19 John 19:3-5 Once more Pilate came out and said to the Jews, "Look, I am bringing him out to you to let you know that I find no basis for a charge against him."

John 19:7 John 19 John 19:6-8 The Jews insisted, "We have a law, and according to that law he must die, because he claimed to be the Son of God."

John 19:12 John 19 John 19:11-13 From then on, Pilate tried to set Jesus free, but the Jews kept shouting, "If you let this man go, you are no friend of Caesar. Anyone who claims to be a king opposes Caesar."

John 19:14 John 19 John 19:13-15 It was the day of Preparation of Passover Week, about the sixth hour. "Here is your king," Pilate said to the Jews.

John 19:19 John 19 John 19:18-20 Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.

John 19:20 John 19 John 19:19-21 Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek.

John 19:21 John 19 John 19:20-22 The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, "Do not write `The King of the Jews,' but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews."

John 19:31 John 19 John 19:30-32 Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jews did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down.

John 19:38 John 19 John 19:37-39 Later, Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of Jesus. Now Joseph was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because he feared the Jews. With Pilate's permission, he came and took the body away.

John 20:19 John 20 John 20:18-20 On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you!"

{Editor's note:  why were ALL of the disciples afraid of the "jews"?  Could it be because they weren't "jews"?}

Acts 2:11 Acts 2 Acts 2:10-12 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs--we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!"

Acts 2:14 Acts 2 Acts 2:13-15 Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: "Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say.

Acts 6:1 Acts 6 Acts 6:1-2 In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Grecian Jews among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food.

Acts 6:9 Acts 6 Acts 6:8-10 Opposition arose, however, from members of the Synagogue of the Freedmen (as it was called)--Jews of Cyrene and Alexandria as well as the provinces of Cilicia and Asia. These men began to argue with Stephen,

Acts 9:22 Acts 9 Acts 9:21-23 Yet Saul grew more and more powerful and baffled the Jews living in Damascus by proving that Jesus is the Christ.

Acts 9:23 Acts 9 Acts 9:22-24 After many days had gone by, the Jews conspired to kill him,

Acts 9:29 Acts 9 Acts 9:28-30 He talked and debated with the Grecian Jews, but they tried to kill him.

Acts 10:39 Acts 10 Acts 10:38-40 "We are witnesses of everything he did in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They killed him by hanging him on a tree, but God raised him from the dead on the third day and caused him to be seen.

Acts 11:19 Acts 11 Acts 11:18-20 Now those who had been scattered by the persecution in connection with Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus and Antioch, telling the message only to Jews.

Acts 12:3 Acts 12 Acts 12:2-4 He had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword. When he saw that this pleased the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

{Editor's note:  this is King Herrod trying to please the jews by putting all of Christ's followers to death}

Acts 13:43 Acts 13 Acts 13:42-44 When the congregation was dismissed, many of the Jews and devout converts to Judaism followed Paul and Barnabas, who talked with them and urged them to continue in the grace of God.

Acts 13:45 Acts 13 Acts 13:44-46 When the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy and talked abusively against what Paul was saying.

Acts 13:50 Acts 13 Acts 13:49-51 But the Jews incited the God-fearing women of high standing and the leading men of the city. They stirred up persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them from their region.

Acts 14:1 Acts 14 Acts 14:1-2 At Iconium Paul and Barnabas went as usual into the Jewish synagogue. There they spoke so effectively that a great number of Jews and Gentiles believed.

Acts 14:2 Acts 14 Acts 14:1-3 But the Jews who refused to believe stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers.

Acts 14:4 Acts 14 Acts 14:3-5 The people of the city were divided; some sided with the Jews, others with the apostles.

Acts 14:5 Acts 14 Acts 14:4-6 There was a plot afoot among the Gentiles and Jews, together with their leaders, to mistreat them and stone them.

Acts 14:19 Acts 14 Acts 14:18-20 Then some Jews came from Antioch and Iconium and won the crowd over. They stoned Paul and dragged him outside the city, thinking he was dead.

{Editor's note:  there can't be a better illustration of the conflict between Paul and the "jews" than to have the "jews" stone him until they thought he was dead}

Acts 16:3 Acts 16 Acts 16:2-4 Paul wanted to take him along on the journey, so he circumcised him because of the Jews who lived in that area, for they all knew that his father was a Greek.

Acts 16:20 Acts 16 Acts 16:19-21 They brought them before the magistrates and said, "These men are Jews, and are throwing our city into an

Acts 17:4 Acts 17 Acts 17:3-5 Some of the Jews were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, as did a large number of God-fearing Greeks and not a few prominent women.

Acts 17:5 Acts 17 Acts 17:4-6 But the Jews were jealous; so they rounded up some bad characters from the marketplace, formed a mob and started a riot in the city. They rushed to Jason's house in search of Paul and Silas in order to bring them out to the crowd.

Acts 17:12 Acts 17 Acts 17:11-13 Many of the Jews believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek women and many Greek men.

Acts 17:13 Acts 17 Acts 17:12-14 When the Jews in Thessalonica learned that Paul was preaching the word of God at Berea, they went there too, agitating the crowds and stirring them up.

Acts 17:17 Acts 17 Acts 17:16-18 So he reasoned in the synagogue with the Jews and the God-fearing Greeks, as well as in the marketplace day by day with those who happened to be there.

Acts 18:2 Acts 18 Acts 18:1-3 There he met a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had ordered all the Jews to leave Rome. Paul went to see them,
