WHO ARE THE CHOSEN PEOPLE OF THE BIBLE? This question is worthy of your time and consideration. This will be an honest attempt to make investigative discovery into the identification of Abraham’s children in this present world. Who are the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob‑Israel, and where are they located in the earth? This may be one of the most imperative theological questions of this century. Who are the chosen people and where are these people living?
The response made to this question could not only have tremendous theological and religious significance, but it could also alter the geo‑political status of our world. Anyone who has carefully read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation can document that God did indeed choose a people unto Himself, above all the people that are upon the face of this earth.
The people designated as the chosen of God in the Bible are Israelites. The word “Israel” appears more than 2,500 times in the total Bible, and this is the generic name given to the family of people descending from Abraham, Isaac, and promises which God made with these people. The primary theme of the Bible is the promise of a Messiah/Saviour who would come into the earth to redeem Israel, confirm the covenants, restore the validity of the Law, and proclaim the way of Salvation for the Elect in God, chosen in Christ, from the foundation of the world.
The first eleven chapters of the Bible cover the entire story of Creation, the Fall, the genealogical tables of Adam’s seed and Cain’s seed, the Genesis Flood, the development of the Adamic nations in the post‑flood history of the Bible, and the building of the tower of Babel.
