27) Gentiles were included in the New Covenant

Acts 14:27 And when they arrived and gathered the church together, they declared all that God had done with them, and how he had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles.

God brought the new covenant church to the Gentiles through faith. While the old covenant was made with the physical nation of Israel, the new covenant was brought to every tongue, tribe, and nation. God’s plan of redemption from the foundation of the world was for Jesus Christ to redeem a people for himself by providing them atonement for their sin debt and His righteousness for their justification.

The old covenant was made with a physical nation, and many if not most were never spiritually redeemed. The new covenant includes only spritually redeemed Jews and Gentiles from all nations.
