it's not so simply a matter of an adverb modifying a noun but rather of an
adverb qualifying an expression being used adverbially, as IOUDAIWi
certainly is being used here. "The gospel is the dynamic instrument
whereby God works salvation for all believers--JEWISH ones in the first
place, but no less GREEK ones."

I do not understand why I missed it.
A universal fact of language seems to be:
Adverbs can modify verbs, adjectives, and adverbs.

So, it seems clear that an adverbial OUDAIWi TE PRWTO KAI hELLHNI
is an apposition to an adverbial TWi PISTEUONTI, and
PTWTO (as an adverbial) modifies the adverbial OUDAIWi.
