The Chosen People of the Bible are the Jewish people and the Jewish race and religion. According to the Bible, GOD entrusted them to be the “Beacon of light to the nations of the world אור לגויים,” a task which I don’t think was faithfully executed.
People believe that following “rationality” means denying the existence of the supernatural and seeking only natural explanations for each phenomenon. However, this is not rationality, but a psychological tendency centered on clinging to the seller, treating the current and familiar reality as if it is all that exists, and it is not possible that there is currently or was in the past anything that deviates from it.
Or it is not necessary to rule out the possibility that reality and physical laws and properties are not in themselves wonderous, indeed miraculous. Thus, if we have not seen miracles, it is not a sign that there is no such event as miracles, and there have never been miracles, but rather one of prejudice and arrogance or simply the inability to access the awe-producing experience that witnessing a miracle would provide the viewer.
Each case must be examined on its own merits, with the possibility that reality is a different situation from what many people might think, and if there is serious and convincing evidence of the existence of supernatural events, the logical choice is to accept it, not to declare with certainty “there is no such thing!”
The rational person is the one who is open to many possibilities, not the one who assumes the conclusion and who blithely rejects contrary explanations.
It has been argued that it is rational to trust tradition and treat it fundamentally as correct, yet it is worth examining and testing its credibility. After these preliminary remarks, we will see why the tradition we pass on should be trusted.
