"The Jews are God’s Chosen People the way Jesus is the Son of God, Krishna is God, Thomas A. Anderson (aka Neo) is the One, and Superman (aka Kal–El, aka Clark Kent) is the son of Krypton’s greatest scientist, Jor-El. Each of these statements is true within the narrative that affirms them, and that is the only realm of truth we humans have.
Regardless of specific content we all live within the narrative frames of race, ethnicity, religion, philosophy, nationality, class, gender, etc. We are all characters in stories that are greater than ourselves: verbal creations to which we often cling in a desperate effort to avoid having to face our own individuality. But without the story, the narrative frame, none of this matters. Without the narrative supporting the idea of a god who chooses one people over all others, the notion of Jewish chosenness is absurd.”
