Here is another comment I made elsewhere, on the topic that the Jews (Judah) are considered the chosen people, because through their lineage they brought Christ into the world.
You know, I honestly don't know if I still believe that the Jews (Judah) brought Christ into the world. We deduce this from Paul's writings, and of course Old Testament passages, but if I go on Jesus' direct words... He himself stated "I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.” Matt 15:24
And in another passage He spoke of "I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” Luke 5:32
We are still influenced by Christian interpretation that we tend to read INTO the text, rather than allowing the text to speak for itself.
In both instances, it seems it leaves room in the world for truly "righteous" people that had no need of Jesus.
The way I look at the word "righteous vs sinners" these days is, that the latter are those who are psychologically traumatized and broken... that need to be shown how to heal themselves.
That's an interpretation through a 'psychological' lens rather than a 'religious' one.
I believe that 'Christ' has always been in the world, throughout every generation. But Jesus came in 3BC to a specific people only. Just my thoughts.
