As God doers not show favoritism, why was salvation first for the Jew ?

Romans 2:10-11 ESV

but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
 11For God does not show favoritism.


Why was salvation for the Jew before the gentile ?

Romans 1:16 NIV

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to
 everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.


John 4:22 NLT

You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know,
for salvation is from the Jews.

Romans 2
28 For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly , nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh. 29 But he is a Jew who is one inwardly ; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter ; and his praise is not from men, but from God.

This is interesting, isn't it. The guy who wrote, " first to the Jew, then to the Gentile", defines for us who a true Jew is.
Then John takes it even further.

Revelation 3:9
'Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie -I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you.

This is clearly a reference to non-Christian Israeli's, or unfaithful Jews.
