I think he has who Christ spoke to incomplete...it was the Jewish leadership...the religious leaders...the same could be said of many religious leaders thru the centuries even til today. They demand their memberships to do what they themsleves do not....and yes there are men and now woman in the pulpits who could easily be said are :children of the deveil”...so what’s that guys beef really?
The Bible makes no distinction on “leaders.” Look at the book of Joshua...when Aachan hid the spoils of the Canaanites in his tent....then the Hebrews were defeated at AI. The USA did the same in WW II...we did not declare war on the Japanese “leaders” who master-minded the attack on Pearl Harbor.
God said, “Israel has sinned....” not “Aachan has sinned...”
So too, when Christ arrived, John 8 tells us the chosen people were divided into two categories...those who accepted him and those who rejected him. The Jews (which is what the NT calls this group) made an argument from pedigree (Abraham is our father - implied, you are a half breed, who is your father?)...Christ told them only those who do the deeds of Abraham qualify.
40 years later the temple was destroyed and the Talmudic Rabinnical Judiasm that evolved over the centuries is not the same as the sacrificial-based worship model the Lord set up and then destroyed in the 1st Century and it is definitely hostile to Jesus Christ.
The two sides existed all the way to Calvary....one side was decidedly smaller in number and even lost one from its ranks for a short time (Peter)....the other side screamed “His blood be upon us and our children”...that is what the account says.
