Problem: Want to change WordPress index page content from post to page.

Solution: First go to /var/www/html/passive_income/wp-content/themes/twentyseventeen/index.php, follow below content

 * The main template file
 * This is the most generic template file in a WordPress theme
 * and one of the two required files for a theme (the other being style.css).
 * It is used to display a page when nothing more specific matches a query.
 * E.g., it puts together the home page when no home.php file exists.
 * @link
 * @package WordPress
 * @subpackage Twenty_Seventeen
 * @since 1.0
 * @version 1.0

get_header(); ?>

<div class="wrap">
	<?php if ( is_home() && ! is_front_page() ) : ?>
		<header class="page-header">
			<h1 class="page-title"><?php single_post_title(); ?></h1>
	<?php else : ?>
	<header class="page-header">
		<h2 class="page-title"><?php _e( 'Posts', 'twentyseventeen' ); ?></h2>
	<?php endif; ?>

	<div id="primary" class="content-area">
		<main id="main" class="site-main" role="main">
			if ( have_posts() ) :

				/* Start the Loop */
			//	while ( have_posts() ) :
			//		the_post();

					 * Include the Post-Format-specific template for the content.
					 * If you want to override this in a child theme, then include a file
					 * called content-___.php (where ___ is the Post Format name) and that will be used instead.
		 //	get_template_part( 'template-parts/post/content', get_post_format() );
	 $id = 1267;
 $post = get_page($id);
 $content = apply_filters('the_content', $post->post_content);
 echo $content;

			/*	the_posts_pagination(
						'prev_text'          => twentyseventeen_get_svg( array( 'icon' => 'arrow-left' ) ) . '<span class="screen-reader-text">' . __( 'Previous page', 'twentyseventeen' ) . '</span>',
						'next_text'          => '<span class="screen-reader-text">' . __( 'Next page', 'twentyseventeen' ) . '</span>' . twentyseventeen_get_svg( array( 'icon' => 'arrow-right' ) ),
						'before_page_number' => '<span class="meta-nav screen-reader-text">' . __( 'Page', 'twentyseventeen' ) . ' </span>',

			else :

				get_template_part( 'template-parts/post/content', 'none' );


		</main><!-- #main -->
	</div><!-- #primary -->
	<?php get_sidebar(); ?>
</div><!-- .wrap -->


keep in mind that the replace $id = 1267; 1267 is the page id.
