Matthew 10:5

Therefore it was to Israel that he spake when He said, "I am not sent but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." Not yet had He "cast to the dogs the children's bread; " not yet did He charge them to "go into the way of the Gentiles." It is only at the last that He instructs them to "go and teach all nations, and baptize them,"98 when they were so soon to receive "the Holy Ghost, the Comforter, who should guide them into all the truth." [Tertullian De praescriptionibus aduersus haereses omnes 8.13 REFOULE R.F., CCL 1 (1954) (p.194, l.30) BP1]
