QUESTION: When Paul was sent unto the Gentiles, were they Israelites who had been scattered or real Gentiles, or were they scattered Israelites called Gentiles?
ANSWER: Well, generally speaking all through the New Testament the Ethene translated gentiles were Israelites. The Apostle Paul was sent to the nations who were of the house of Israel and to the church. Sometimes he is ministering to the church and sometimes to the people who were the Lost sheep of Israel. Of course he knew they were in Britain. Who talks about one God who is the Father of us all. He talks to them about being of Israel. And he does not talk to them as he does to the heathen. So very little of Paul’s missionary activities were to people not of the heathen. So very little of Paul’s missionary activities were to people non-White, non-Israel. So it was to Israel or the White race of people he went.
