..........and he was a Jew.  In fact he was the perfect jew.  He sure did not belong to the palestinian people.  If Jesus lived today I have no doubt he would support the Israelies and even be an extreme right wing Israeli.  

Love is the battery of life....

He was also a subject of Rome

Hay. You think I'm crazy? You should hear the voices in my head. Those people have issues.

How many current Palestinians trace their ancestry back to King David?

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.

OMG.  STILL beating that broken drum Bushy?  Jesus was not a Palestinian. There has NEVER been a sovereign nation called Palestine and NO Palestinian people.  The motley assortment of mostly Muslims who call themselves "Palestinians" are descended from various ARAB nations.

Jesus was an Israelite...

Israelite refers to anyone of the Hebrew nation (and anyone who was a native of the ancient kingdom of Israel). This is often confused with the term "Jew," which is blatantly distorted in modern times for various reasons - not least among them political/economic - but which is actually reserved only for those descending from the tribe of Judah, one of the 12 sons of Jacob, including the house of David the Prophet & King (and yes, Jesus is also a descendant of the tribe of Judah - and therefore not only an Israelite, but also a Jew). 

Bottom line: all Jews are Israelites (Hebrews) but not all Israelites/Hebrews are Jews - Jesus is both.

Dear GMA@!%Sheila;

Oh? So happens we are both, a nation-like thr English or the Scotts, and a religious people. So we have born of a Jewish mother (this is because in times of trouble, when women are raped, we cannot be sure of the father's nationality, but we know the mother's) and those who convert. those who convert are as much a Jew as one born into our nation. Israel was the name given Jacob (Yis-ra-el "man strives with G-d" ) as we are all physically or spiritually decended from Jacob, and Judean, from where we get the English words; Jewish and Judaism, from the major tribe which formed the nucluis of our people-Tribe of Judah.

Like, I  am from California. I move to another state. Am I called by what people in that state are called, or still called a Californian?

Also, I am-say-a Californian, am I also an American?

Same why with the Jewish people.

Bottom line actually is; all are decended from Israel (Jacob) and all are of the religion of Judah=Judaism. So all are Jewish. Now are you still confused?
