In Jesus Christ’s entire earthly Ministry, He only ministered to two Gentiles. Romans 15:8 says, Jesus Christ ministered to the uncircumcised or to the Jewish people.The first
In Matthew 10:3-6 Jesus sent his disciples to the lost sheep of the House of Israel and not to the Gentiles or Samaritans. Those were his Specific Instructions to the 12.
Please note that his ministry was primarily to the Jewish people including the Gospels. He called one Gentile woman a dog in Matthew 15. Can you imagine the reaction to that today? He’d be called out on every Network. But Gentiles in his day were often called a dog. In fact in the Jewish Talmud Gentiles are referred to as less than a pig. Some Jewish people believe that yet today. Not very complimentary to be sure.
In my next posting on this issue I will turn to the Gentiles and their program with God. What you have seen here today is Israel’s program to God which runs from Genesis to the middle of the book of Acts and then again from Hebrews through Revelation. The body of Christ references from Romans to Philemon.
