Matthew 15:5-7 alone makes this clear.
Yet, from Romans through Philemon, there is NO difference between Jew and Gentile. But then, we see a difference between Jew and Gentile show up again in Hebrews through Revelation. Go read it and see.
Why do you suppose that is?
The letter to the HEBREWS is written to ... HEBREWS, but Paul earlier says that we "know no man according to the flesh." James 1:1 says that the letter is written to the 12 tribes of Israel scattered abroad, which is NOT any Gentile.
Paul is YOUR apostle and mine. The gospel given to Paul is OUR gospel, for today. Peter, James, and John are not preaching to YOU.
Me - This was under the OT LAW (in real time). Everyone understands there was a clear separation between the two groups. It was commanded by God to keep them from going off into Idol Worship (and other reasons).

Me - Both JEW/Gentile Entered the church in (Acts 2&10). Things went well for a time, until some of the Jews decided to include (ADD) circumcision into the NT Law (Acts 15:1)(Deut.4:2)(1Cor.4:6).
The reason why is false doctrine W. And the Jews thinking they were better than the Gentiles. False doctrine does not die easily. It grows like a cancer. False doctrine carries those decieved by it out of the grace of God (Gal. 5:4)(Heb. 10:26).
4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.(Gal. 5:4)
26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,(Heb. 10:26)
*You can "CLAIM" you follow Paul if you want but just remember Paul had to go along way before he was able to become a Christian (thats action and not faith alone W). Paul had to go find a man so he could tell Paul what he "MUST DO" to become a Christian (Acts 9:6)(1Cor.1:21)(2Tim.2:2).
...Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.(Acts 9:6)
Pauls sins was not washed away by the blood of Jesus until he got up and was baptized (immersed in water) according to (Acts 22:16)(Acts 8:38,39).
2. Be Baptized
3. Wash Away Your Sins
What Paul done to have his sins cleansed in no way harmonizes with what you teach W. But if you want to claim you teach what Paul teaches fine. Even Ray Charles could see through that W.
Paul also wrote (Rom. 6:16-18). It proves man must do something before his sins are forgiven (not faith alone).
16. Decide who to serve.
17. Obey that form of doctrine.
18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.(become a Christian)
Paul taught the alien sinner "must do something" to be "freed from sin" (become a Christian). What you are teaching does not harmonize with what the apostle Paul taught W.
SO why don't you stop claiming you teach what Paul taught?
