Jew and Hebrew mean the same thing. Hebrew is a more outdated term, usually referring to the people of Israel prior to the Babylonian Captivity. And yes, Jesus is described in the New Testament as a Jew/Hebrew.

All Jews are Hebrews. Jesus was both a Jew and a Hebrew. The term "Jew" referred to the people of Judea, of which Jesus was a member, and was used as early as the fourth century BCE (including in the book of Esther). All Jews were Hebrews (since a Hebrew is any descendant of Eber and Eber is an ancestor of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the ancestors of the Jews), but not all Hebrews were Jews. Jesus was also more strongly aligned with the Pharisees he rejected than any of the other contemporaneous Jewish movements. Although the Pharisees would not become the dominant form of Judaism until the Talmud was published, their views and methods of interpretation were certainly well-developed by Jesus' time.

As a Jew living in Israel, Jesus would have read the scriptures in Hebrew. However, the New Testament gospels were all written in Greek and their authors showed familiarity with the Septuagint, an early Greek translation of the Hebrew scriptures.


The reason that most Christians say this is because Jesus actually was a Jew and since the term Jew is more specific and more relatable today than Hebrew, most Christians prefer it. Initially, at around 1000 BCE, you had the Israelite Tribes which were commonly known as "the Hebrews". However, the Israelite Tribes split into two main kingdoms: Israel and Judea. The term "Jew" came to refer to the people of Judah, of whom Jesus was a descendant.

Jesus was born a Jew. Yes, Jesus was born a "Jew" as in a resident of Judea, but there is some conflict as to Jesus being a "Jew" as defined today.

A Jewish person is a Jew. Hebrew is a language.


Jesus lived and died as a Jew. Thus, he used the Hebrew Bible (often called the Old Testament by Christians), and he frequently quoted from it. It should be noted that Jesus left no writings, so we only have what his followers wrote about him many decades after he died; but as a Jew and as a teacher of religion, Jesus was well-acquainted with the Hebrew Scriptures.
