Ah George, your caught in an argument from silence. The Bible doesn't say
that it didn't happen either. How about all of those non-Israelites or those
before Abram? How did they come to believe? Consider the story of Jonah. He
went into a non-Israelite city, reluctantly, and with little enthusiasm
announced God's judgement. The whole city converted! Do you really think
that Jonah's witness was all there was?
