The myth of Jewish racial purity took another hit with the publication of research on the DNA of modern Jews. The ruler-priests and clans of Abraham and his Horite people intermarried exclusively. This pattern continued unbroken until the time of Jesus Christ. Jesus' Horite ancestry can be traced using the geneological data in the Bible.
With the appearing of the Son of God promised in Genesis 3:15, the unique Horite marriage and ascendency pattern fulfilled its purpose and ceased. The "Seed" of the "Woman" who would crush the serpent's head, make void the curse and restore Paradise had been born of the people to whom the promise was first made in the well-watered region of Eden. This is called "the Edenic Promise" and it marks the origin of messianic expectation long before there was a people identified as Jews.
