FAQ :: Will the Antichrist be of Jewish descent?

No. There is no biblical proof that he is a Jew and many base that idea on Daniel 11:37 where the King James version reads, “Neither shall he regard the God of fathers,” thus referring it to Israel’s one God but as the new translations have corrected that version to the: “gods” of his fathers referring to the Roman pantheon of many gods. The Antichrist comes out of the final Roman type of government (Daniel 7:23, Revelation17). And his type would be that of Antiochus Epiphanes who was of Greco-Syrian Descent. Antiochus Epiphanes tried to grecianize the Jews in Jerusalem and the Jewish Maccabees fought against his rule. his rule.
