What are the Greeks called in the Bible?

Keyword: Greek

"Greeks" not only refer to the inhabitants of what is now Greece, but to all people in the east of the Roman Empire. They were mostly pagans and therefore did not believe in the God of Israel (cf. Mark 7:26; Acts 14:14 ), and spoke Greek among themselves. Luke also reports of many "Greeks" who were attracted to Jewish life or converted to the Jewish faith (Acts 10.2; Acts 17.4).

When Paul speaks of "Greeks" he means the entire pagan world as opposed to the Jews. According to Galatians 3:28 and Ephesians 2:14, this contrast is canceled by JesusChrist.
