Comment: Good question!

(See in situ)

Good question!

For me the answer is that Israel was supposed to teach the rest of the world what God was all about by having a close connection with him and being an example. But then they failed so completely that they didn't even recognize God when he came to earth as Jesus and that's why Jesus said the kingdom was taken from them. So God's chosen people today are not Jews, because they dumped him. God's people now are everyone that wants to be God's people. And God rested on the 7th day not because He was tired, but because he wanted to celebrate with his creation. You don't have to be a Jew to be part of his creation and celebrate.

I know, I know, this you really do have to down vote! Go ahead, that's fine. Everyone has their own version of reality and this one's mine, believe it or not. :-)
