What I mean is that Gentile is derived from Latin "gentilis" and it usually means non-Christians. In the OT, Gentile could also mean non-Jew as stated in the online dictionary. I admit my mistake when I stated that "it was only found in the NT" in which I actually mean that the word Gentile which is a derivative of Latin was incorporated during translation of the OT from Hebrew. And "Gentile" in the NT usually mean non-Christian rather than non-Jew as taught in church when I was a young Christian. Since Gentile means non-Christian, therefore the times of the Gentiles means the non-Christian era which is the era after Christ.
