What does Ethnos mean?

In 1 Peter 2:9 the apostle uses vivid language to describe followers of Jesus, reminding them that their identity is based on Who God is. In this instance, the Greek word “ethnos” carries the connotation of a group made of extremely diverse people unified by God Himself and called to serve Him in this lost and broken world.

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy ethnos, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9, ESV)
