  • Non believers. Anyone who does not believe in God is a gentile. Back in those days Jews were the only ones to believe in God. The others were pagan and worshipped earthly things, other dietys and not God.

    Except that I am adopted into the Jewish heiratage through Christ Jesus. I am not a gentile..I am the seed of Abraham...a child of God that is graphted in. I have a Jewish Father and His name is Jesus.
