Why does the power of God bring salvation to the Jews first?

I find this verse confusing. Is it saying that God prioritises Jews over Gentiles? 

Romans 1:16

NIV - 16 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.
