Did God Reveal Himself To Only The Jewish Race? by nep2ra(m): 1:14am On Nov 14, 2012
When you read through the Bible, you will find the Jews playing a prominent role in the scheme of things. In the Old Testament, God communicates with the Jews, sends messengers of Jewish descent, passes instructions and commandments to the children of Israel (who are Jews) and reveals Himself and His ways to the Jews. Flip over the the New Testament, the story is the same. Jesus of Nazareth is a Jew. His disciples are all Jews. Apostle Paul who wrote two thirds of the New Testament is also a Jew. The writers of the remaining part of the New Testament are all Jews.

"Hmmmmmm" I say to myself. What is going on here? Does that mean God revealed Himself to only the Jewish race? Why do the Jews get preferential treatment above all other races on earth? Did God also reveal Himself to other races on earth? If so, are there written records of other races experience with God?

Yaweh is a racist. You better now know.


Even Jesus said that he came for the lost sheep of Isreal.

The question is :

1. Did GOD ever reveal himself to any man? If yes , then show me 'where' , 'how' and to whom he revealed himself.

2. Was jesus a jew?

3. Who was apostle paul?

My conclusion is, this is what u get when ur mindset is fixed to reading one book that's edited more than 5000 times by men, adultrated by the romans and have multiple versions(new or old testament, kjv, etc).

Let's assume God revealed Himself to the Jews and the Bible is a feeble attempt to record their expecriences with Him. If God is fair and just, it means He also revealed Himself to other races at different times in history and there are also written accounts of these.

Unfortunately, you are saying that Zues, Sango, Odin, Osiris are all true.

I'm not exactly saying that. If Christians want to claim the Bible is accurate then I see no reason why God didn't reveal Himself to other races in the form of the deities you mentioned above. It will be foolish of Jews to think the Creator of the Universe revealed Himself to only them. God also revealed Himself to Africans, Vikings, Mongols, Eskimos and all other races and they have their Bible to prove it.

Your comment has raised an interesting issue here. I wonder why Africans and all other races are laying claim to a God that is clearly a Jewish deity. "I am the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob" says Yahweh. God is stating clearly and without further controversy that He is the God of all Jews. Even if other races want to lay claim to Him, He has made it clear who He prefers.

THE JEWS ARE NOT A RACE OF PEOPLE CRAFTED TO BE SUPERIOR ABOVE ALL. ALL HUMANS HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE JEWS. JEWS ARE THE SPIRITUALLY SUPERIOR ONES CULLED AND GRAFTED OUT OF ALL THE ADAMITES. THE REST THEN AUTOMATICALLY BECAME HEATHENS AND WERE LEFT TO THEIR OWN DESIRES AND LUSTS IN THE ERA OF THE GENTILES WHICH WE ARE STILL IN.

that is why we PAgans have all the same basic underlying concept of religion and spirituality. The Gods revealed themselves in their own ways to the different tribes and ethnic groups around the world.

Zeus = Olodumare = Chukwu = Brahma, etc..

Shango = Mars = Mithras = MixCoatl = Agurzil = Guan Yu = Horus = Ku =Tumatauenga = Dayisun Tengrii = Bellona = Agasaya = Ogoun, etc . .

and so on and so forth. .

Therefore we tribals around the world must Unite. That is my logo btw on my profile pic.

I find the bold part very interesting. Sometimes I imagine what religion ancient civilizations, pre-dating Christianity and Islam practised. It's very fascinating to think these people had an organised form of rituals and worship. It goes to show long before the advent of Judaism, Christianity and Islam
people always had a concept of God in their minds and sought to express their reverence of this deity in the form of pagan worship.

Of course He revealed Himself to the whole of mankind. They didn't get the message, so He chose the faithful obedient ones, and made them His hotspot for the whole earth. He revealed Himself to Adam, the father of the human race, the man no teach him pikins. They all got so corrupted except Noah. He revealed Himself to Noah again, and told him a similar thing as He told Adam to multiply. The man no gree hear, until He found Abraham and called him out of his family. God tested him severally and severely. He passed so much that he was promised that he would bless the earth. The rest is the history you wrote. God used Abraham's seed to form a nation, Israel and sent Jesus through that nation to bless the world.
Gen 12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
Rom 3:1 What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?
Rom 3:2 Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.
Act 10:35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

I think God is revealed to who diligent inquires to the matter. You have the cases of the Ethiopian eunuch and the Roman centurion that Peter was sent to minister to. Its also worthy to note that since the advent of Christianity much has been done to bring all of the world under the consciousness that there is a God. Also, I think you partly answered your question when you said that people always had a concept of God in their minds and sought to express their reverence of this deity in the form of pagan worship. I think a more accurate way of putting it also is that God is revealed to someone. That is the person actually finds out that there is a God. And we can see glimpses of that in multitude of religions.

God called Abraham from his father's land to an unknown land where He made His promises to him that in him all nations will be blessed. So, technically, Abraham was not a jew by birth, he was called out of his father's land by God and through him (Jesus Christ being his descent) came to be blessed.

Who then is a Jew?

Why is it that the Bible places superior emphasis on the Jews? Are you saying God did not reveal Himself to your forefathers? (i.e Africans, which I suppose you are). If Yahweh (The God of Israel) chose the Jews as His people, will you blame other races for choosing to find and worship a God (or gods) who loves and approves of them?
