God doesn't judge til after death.
So when God sent Jesus to the Jews, He knew they would reject Jesus because of the corruption of His word, and the iniquities in their hearts, and they would suffer for the whole world to see -- and hopefully learn from.

There are no chosen ones, there never have been, and there wont be until the resurrection of the dead, if you believe in the bible.
Since Jesus did not come to change the (Jewish) law, but to fulfill the law, and Christians follow the God and the law of the Jews,
you are so wrong in your understanding...
Let's retire the word gentile, it's just a p.c. way to say goyim, which is the jewish derogatory term for non Jews.
1Cor 10:32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:
however Christ is only in the believer and vise versa that is why there is the separation of the unsaved into two groups, and the church of God made of both.
Eph 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
14 ¶ For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
Col 3:10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
Ga 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
Eze 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
And that God will someday Judge men by two means, 1) by the work of Christ in which men have placed their faith for salvation, and 2) by men's own works apart from Christ.
John 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
