Hebrews are not a nationality, and weren't in Biblical times. Being a Hebrew is a family relationship, based on ancestry related to Jacob. Having a nationality is based purely on place of birth or on a later acquisition when one renounces one's existing nationality in favour of a new one.

What nationality are the Jewish people?

Jewish people tend to be of the Hebrew nation, and are the people of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. They are the people of Israel. Jacob's name was changed to Israel, and all of Jacob's descendants became the nation of Israel. It should be noted that Hebrews and Jews, while usually embodied by the same people (with exceptions), do not have the same definition because Judaism is a religious faith and Hebrews are of the Hebrew and Israeli nationality. So as many people who would call themselves Jewish are also Hebrew, and many people who call themselves Hebrews are also Jewish, they are not one and the same. Much like a Roman is not synonymous with a Catholic. Hebrew is a word that actually means one who crosses over, as in crosses over from Egypt.
