    What does this imply about Jesus' relationships with Jews contrasted with his relationships with Gentiles?

    Luke 19:9-10
    Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost." (NIV)

    Jesus didn't have a relationship with the gentiles during His earthly ministry.

    Matthew 15:24 - But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

    An exception to the rule. The rule being that Jesus' primary mission was the fulfillment of prophecy in His earthly ministry, and that was as Israel's Messiah.

    After having accomplished that at the cross, and after Israel's rejection of her Messiah by the ruling class, i.e. the Sanhedrin,(the stoning of Steven in Acts chapter 7) and the subsequent salvation of Saul of Tarsus, God then revealed the mystery.

    Ephesians 1:9 - Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

    Ephesians 3:3 - How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,

    Ephesians 3:4 - Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)

    Ephesians 3:9 - And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

    Ephesians 5:32 - This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

    Ephesians 6:19 - And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

    Colossians 1:26 - Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

    Colossians 1:27 - To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

    Colossians 2:2 - That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;

    Colossians 4:3 - Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:
