    I'm trying to remember what one of my seminary professors said on the topic but he himself maintained that the concept of "Jew" as most people understood it was a modern invention and that all such biblical mentions should have been translated as "Judean". But this is too far back for me to remember any more than this.

    Dr. May and I had a lot of fun disagreeing with each other on stuff.

    Don't they say that a rose by any other name is still a rose?

    "Judean" refers to someone from a certain geographical region which isn't what people these days usually mean by the word "Jew".

    Yeah, but when the Bible refers to "Jews", it's clearly referring to more than the geographical location they were born.

    Scripture Verse: Romans 2:28-29

    For a person is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision something that is outward in the flesh, but someone is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is of the heart by the Spirit and not by the written code. This person's praise is not from people but from God.

    Right, which is a big reason I don't really agree with the proposition.
