I was just wondering if people of the christian faith, know of any specific reason, why God chose, to send his only son, Jesus, to Israel?
I imagine the obvious answer, is that the Jews were God's chosen people. But I wish to dig deeper, and ask why was the Jews God's chosen people?
Frankly I don't think there is a reason. I am an atheist, and my theory is, that people generally pick themselves as their Gods' chosen people - and
naturally that is why he would also send Jesus to them, to please their collective ego.
But I am very interested in bible history and christian apologetics, so if anyone has a more satisfying answer, I would love to hear it. Cause I have
never heard one.
But surely, even if one does believe in the christian God, this must make one wonder. Why not somewhere else in Asia or South America? - or some third
country across the Mediterranean sea?
Anyway - just a thought..
