Genesis 25, Can it be said that Gentiles were indirectly part of the promise also?

Question: From todays reading, it appears both the Jewish nation and gentiles came from the seed of Abraham. So can it be said that Gentiles were indirectly part of the promise also? Answer: The promise that Abraham would be the father of many nations does include all of Abraham's children, and many nations did come thru them.  The promise of the Messiah, and the land of Canaan was not for all of Abraham's children though. This is clear in Genesis 21:12, "in Isaac your seed shall be called". That promise was passed on to Isaac and then Jacob. -PJ
