"Woe unto you that are full!" - Hebrews and Japanese

The Tokyo Station

Hebrews and Japanese

Why from the beginning did God choose Hebrews as a special tribe?  It is important, because for this reason God sent His Son, Christ Jesus, to Hebrews.

Anyway it is interesting that although the mankind appeared about 200,000 years ago in Africa, the history of Hebrews is just 4000 years.
Genetic studies on Jews show that most Jews worldwide bear a common genetic heritage which originates in the Middle East, and that they bear their strongest resemblance to the peoples of the Fertile Crescent. The genetic composition of different Jewish groups shows that Jews share a common genetic pool dating back 4,000 years, as a marker of their common ancestral origin. Despite their long-term separation, Jewish communities maintained commonalities in culture, tradition, and language. 
So, why did not God choose any other tribes as special tribes for 166,000 years since the emergence of the mankind?

In Japan, the Later Stone Age is believed to have started 35,000 years ago.  Since then, there seems to be continuation of existence of people.  So, the Japanese include many descendants of ancestors who lived in the Japanese Archipelago more than 30,000 years ago.   And since there were no big waves of immigration to the Japanese Archipelago from the Asian continent and the Southeast Pacific to replace residents though the history, old and unique traits of the original Japanese must be secured even to date.

Specifically, although a little more than 50%  of the Japanese today share some DNA patters with Chinese and Koreans, 30% of the Japanese have unique DNA patterns that cannot be seen in Korea and China where people were mixed and replaced more dynamically than in Japan.

But God chose Hebrews having lived near the center of the world between Asia, Europe and Africa as a special tribe in stead of Japanese having lived in the Far East from Jerusalem.

So, we must think about why were Hebrews chosen by God?
