In John 8:44 who was Jesus talking to when he said, “You belong to your father the devil”?

John 844 meaning This sounds pretty ugly to modern ears and, particularly in the shadow of the Shoah, strikes many moderns as prima facie evidence for the alleged "intrinsic anti-Semitism" of Christianity, stretching all the way back to the New Testament and even to the very words of Jesus Himself. The source is the demonizing of the Jewish people. This comes as no surprise since New Testament passages, such as John 8.44, refer to Jews as 'children of the Devil'" www. Many Christians, rightly sensitive to the dangers of anti-Semitism, have tended to respond to this and similar texts by trying to create some distance between Jesus and these words. This is usually accomplished by turning Jesus into the "Johannine Jesus" and attributing this and other sayings, not to Jesus Himself, but to the evangelist.
