actually paul was the only person who actually cared about people other then jew's because paul wasn't a jew. he was a gentile. He saw through the
message and applied it to everyone when clearly it was only for the jew's salvation. Jesus came to save the jew's he states it many times he even
goes on to tell a gentile women that his miracles are for the lost sheep of Israel and not for her which clearly should put doubt in the minds of
gentile Christians as to who they are praying to. However I'm not a biblical scholar and interpretation of the bible really isn't my thing.
According to the text, Saul Paulus, commonly referred to as the apostle Paul, was a Syrian "Jew" or rather Israelite of the tribe of Benjamin.
However he also sported his Roman citizenship through his father who was some sort of magistrate or Roman official.
