Best Answer

The distinction between Jews and Gentiles was meaningless until the time of Abraham, at the earliest. Even then, it is problematic because the definition of Gentile eventually came to include the children of Ishmael. The term really only comes into its own when contrasting the Children of Israel to the other peoples of the world.
