Paul claimed the title of the “Apostle to the gentiles”, and established gentile churches in several important cities in the Roman Empire.  This work is addressed to the Thessalonians.  Acts of the Apostles, chapter 17:1-15 tells a story of Paul’s journeys.  In these reports, “some” Jews converted during Paul’s initial preaching in Thessalonica.  However, the gentiles who were converted were “a large number”.  Nevertheless, some Jews in Thessalonica fiercely opposed Paul’s work there.  Do you consider yourself a gentile?
