Luke 4:26-27

Jesus spoke to them saying that there were only two Gentiles saved in all the days of Elijah, the widow at Zarephath and Naaman.  In context Jesus is talking to the unwillingness to believe in Him and how because of their faith they rejected the ministry of God, so God healed the Gentiles instead.
In John we come to the woman at the well in Samaria and the nobelman who has a sick son.  What does it say that the Nazarites rejected Christ? That His blessing would go to the Gentiles who came in faith.
I'm sure there is more to it, but that's about all I can figure even after many days of thought. Perhaps the Lord will remove the blindness from my eyes in time to teach it.
