Communities of Gentile hangers-on already frequented the synagogues and differed in Torah observance. Greek-speakers called them phoboumenoi, sebomenoi, or theosebeis; Latins metuentes; Hebrew-speakers yirei shamay’im. ”13 With the category-confusing eschatology of Plan B, the possibility of nonTorah-observant Gentile worshippers of the God of Israel, and the explosive growth of actual Gentile God-fearers under Paul’s preaching of the Messiah, Paul started to worry about the character of God.
