To judge the Lamb of God

Blake's devil on Dr John Dunn. To judge the Lamb of God

Satan’s Synagogue is William Blake’s name for the false religion that worships the base powers of this world.

Man must and will have some religion; if he has not the religion of Jesus, he will have the religion of Satan, and will erect the Synagogue of Satan.
It is called a synagogue because it murders Love, adhering instead pharisaically to a vengeful law.

Urizen called together the Synagogue of Satan in dire Sanhedrim
To judge the Lamb of God to death as a murderer and a robber.
(Blake’s Jerusalem)

In The Mythology, Love is known variously as God, the Word, Logos, Jesus, Creativity
.
