In reality there is no difference between the Jew and the Gentile: they have all the same Lord, who is bountiful to all that call upon him.
and you Gentiles ought to glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, "for this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name ."
1 Corinthians 12:13
for by one spirit we have all been baptized, to be form'd into one body, whether Jews or Gentiles, slaves or free; and have been all made to drink of one spirit.

"that the Gentiles should be heirs as well as the Jews, make one body together, and partake of the divine promise in Christ by the gospel."
1 Corinthians 7:19
circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, in comparison of obeying the divine commands.

for in the dispensation of Jesus Christ, neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but the new creation.
where the inhabitants, as much barbarians, as they were, receiv'd us with great humanity. they kindled a fire, and secur'd us from the falling rains, as well as the cold:

I am crucified with Christ, it is not I that now live, but Christ that liveth in me; the life I have in this body I live by faith in the son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
which is his body, a work compleatly finished in all its parts.
so that your souls may be possess'd with faith in Christ.
1 John 5:20
