Yes!!! were the Jew, the example to the world? Galatians 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

It's actually the nation of Israel who were to be God's living examples of how people are to live to the nations. The "Jews" are just the descendents of the Tribe of Judah. It is a mistake to use the terms interchangeably.
