Anselm: Gentiles Still Called

“For supposing all the Jews had believed, the Gentiles would nevertheless be called, because, ‘In every race, he who fears God and does what is right is acceptable to him’ [Acts Io:35]. But it was because the Jews despised the apostles that the apostles had an opportunity at that time to turn to the Gentiles.”

-Anselm of Canterbury, Why God Became Man, Book 1, 18.
