  • John Havlik on Matthew 10:18
    Why is the word Gentiles capitolized?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Matthew 10:18
    Because Gentiles is a person (Or persons), place or thing. A noun. You learn that in the 3rd grade.
  • History of Israel and Gentiles - in Reply on Matthew 10:18
    The simple explanation of it: there are 3 groups of people on earth:

    Unbelieving Gentiles, Pagans

    Gentiles (all born again people, no matter their nationality or church affiliation.). Grafted into the Vine (Christ) by faith.

    The Jewish People. In covenant with God (Genesis 15). In Genesis 32:28, 30

    Jacobs NAME was changed to ISRAEL.

    Much of what scholars know about Israel's ancient history comes from the Hebrew Bible. According to the text, Israel's origins can be traced back to Abraham, who is considered the father of both Judaism (through his son Isaac) and Islam (through his son Ishmael).

    Abraham's descendants were thought to be enslaved by the Egyptians for 400 years before settling in Canaan, which is approximately the region of modern-day Israel.

    When World War I ended in 1918 with an Allied victory, the 400-year Ottoman Empire rule ended, and Great Britain took control over what became known as Palestine (modern-day Israel, Palestine and Jordan).

    The British controlled Palestine until Israel, in the years following the end of World War II, became an independent state in 1947.

    God set His love on Israel. The unsaved world Hates Israel for that one Reason. Armageddon will be fought for that same reason. Then this world will end. Don't be left behind.

    John 15:18-19. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

    If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
