God used the Jewish people to record and preserve His divine pronouncements for all mankind. This is recognized not only by Jews, but also by Muslims and Christians:
The Jews "were required to preserve the Book of ALLAH" and "they were guardians over it," according to the Islamic holy book, the Koran 5:45
"The Jews are the people to whom God's message was entrusted," according to Romans 3:2 in the Christian New Testament of the Jerusalem Bible.
God also chose to use the Jews to illustrate the blessings of walking in God's ways and the curses that come upon those who turn away from God.
For turning away from God and His holy ways, the Jews were to endure a many-centuries-long Tribulation, culminating in an attempt to exterminate them in the Holocaust.
