 DID YOU KNOW THAT ALL ISRAELITES ARE ALSO GENTILES   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
The bottom line is that referring to other people as “Gentiles” is always an expression of contempt for those other people...even when the speaker himself is not aware that the Jews changed the meaning of this word to express contempt and very carefully avoided using the word to refer to themselves.
So in placing this new English word “Gentile” into the English language translations of the Bible the translators were using their own biases to decide when to use the words “nation” or “people”, and when to use the words “heathen” or “Gentiles”.
Expressions like “he’s a gentile” and “the gentile Nebuchadnezzar” and ”what do you expect from a bunch of gentiles?”, etc. are never found or even hinted at in the Bible...such expressions can at best be described as condescending, and that is just not the way God inspired the Bible to be written.

 What About Gentiles?
A Gentile is not a "neighbor" — with regard to the "neighbor" commandments

 SUMMA THEOLOGICA: Was it fitting that Christ should suffer at the hands of the Gentiles, or rather of the Jews?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
But the Jews sinned in His death, on whose behalf it is said (Matthew 21:38): "This is the heir; come, let us kill him." It seems fitting, therefore, that the Gentiles should not be implicated in the sin of Christ's slaying.
Therefore neither ought Christ's Passion, which was a true sacrifice, to be fulfilled at the hands of the Gentiles.
Christ's Passion was the offering of a sacrifice, inasmuch as He endured death of His own free-will out of charity: but in so far as He suffered from His persecutors it was not a sacrifice, but a most grievous sin.

 The Times of the Gentiles | Dan Delagrave
It is also commonly taught that the times of the Gentiles refers to the historical period of Gentile control over Jerusalem beginning with the Babylonian captivity in 586 B.C. and ending in 1967, when Israel took East Jerusalem from the Arabs in the Six-Day War.
This is in perfect harmony with Daniel 12:7, where the defining characteristic of "the time of the end" is said to be "the scattering of the power of the holy people", which we are told would be accomplished during "a time, times, and a half", or forty two months.
If the Gentiles (Romans) conquered the city in 70 A.D., then wouldn't the times of the Gentiles start in 70 A.D. Before that time, the armies merely surrounded the city, and after that time they trampled the city.

See s(w)e- in Appendix I. When it is said in a Middle English text written before 1400 that a part of a temple fell down and “mad a gret distruccione of ethnykis,” one wonders why ethnics were singled out for death.
The word ethnic in this context, however, means “gentile,” coming as it does from the Greek adjective ethnikos, meaning “national, foreign, gentile.” The adjective is derived from the noun ethnos, “people, nation, foreign people,” that in the plural phrase ta ethn
m, “gentiles”; hence the sense of the noun in the Middle English quotation.

 Paul's Office as Apostle to the Gentiles
And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and glorified the word of God; and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed (Acts 13:46-48).
He claims a calling that antedates the call of Jesus to the Twelve, as the light for the Gentiles quotation comes from Isaiah 49:6 (this is applied to Jesus in Luke 2:32) and Paul saw it as a special commission directed to him, and perhaps also to Barnabas.
It does not require a stretch to suspect that the man from Tarsus could see himself prophesied, exalted and identified in the words of the great Prophet, if he was possessed of an highly inflated sense of his own significance.

 Gentiles to provoke Israel to jealousy
Israel’s present rejection and fall is a curse to Israel but a blessing to Gentiles because "through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles."

When the Jews rejected their Messiah, God had the good of the Gentiles in mind and salvation was brought to them (Rom.
