(By removing that little word “of” twice, the NKJV has destroyed the fact that there was more than one Gospel here. There was not just one Gospel of both Jew and Gentile, the KJV says there were two Gospels, one given to the Jews and ANOTHER given to the

Gentiles. Also, correlation with Ephesians 2:11-12 now destroyed).
