Hi everybody! There is presently a thread elsewhere on this Forum about the Jewish people and their status as the chosen people of God. I thought it would be good to share the Theosophical interpretation and explanation of such an idea. Theosophy teaches that each ethnic group has its own "guardian angel," or super-human entity that is actively involved in the creation and maintaining of that ethnic group. The Irish people believe that they have their own patron saint, as do the Polish people, etc., and this idea is fully supported by Theosophical teachings. Theosophy teaches that the Jewish people have their own "guardian angel" who is referred to by the name Yaweh. Somehow, their "patron saint" Yaweh was promoted to the Almighty (according to Theosophy), and we have the situation as it stands today. Many people (myself included) cannot see how God would choose one ethnic group as His own chosen people, to the detriment of all other peoples. Fortunately, this more logical explanation is provided. Yes, the Jewish people are the chosen people. It is merely a question of who they were chosen by.
