They '''all''' were of Jewish descent, even though some, such as Matthew (a.k.a. Levi), worked for the Romans as a tax collector, and several of them are known by Greek names rather than Hebrew or Aramaic equivalents.

All of Jesus' twelve chosen disciples were Jews. There was one "non-Jew" significant among the writers of the Bible; Luke, the author of the third gospel and the book of Acts.
