Difference Between Jewish and Hebrew

• Categorized under Culture | Difference Between Jewish and Hebrew

Jewish vs Hebrew

Every country and every nation has its own people, language, religion, and culture, and they are called by different names too. Take the case of the Israelites, for example; they are also called Jewish and Hebrew.

“Jewish” is the word used to refer to everything that relates to the culture and religion of the Jews. It includes their nationality, ethnicity, religion, and traditions. The State of Israel is established as a Jewish nation whose people are descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The word “Jew” from which the word “Jewish” is derived, comes from the Middle English word “gyw” which in turn came from the French word “giu” or “juieu.” They all stemmed from the Latin word “Judaeus” meaning “Judean” or “from the land of Judea.” The origin of the word, however, was the Aramaic “Y’huddai” from the Hebrew word “Yehudi” which is the term used to refer to a member of the tribe of Judah, the fourth son of Jacob.

The word “Hebrew,” on the other hand, is used to refer to a descendant of Abraham or an Israelite. It is also used to refer to their cultural and religious ties and those who have converted to Judaism. It is more often used to refer to the ancient Canaanite language of the Israelites, though. It is the official language of the State of Israel but is also used by Samaritans and other non-Jewish groups. There are many forms of the Hebrew language: one is classical Hebrew which is used for prayer and study; and the other one is modern Hebrew which is spoken by most of the Jewish people and the official language of Israel.

The word “Hebrew” comes from the Middle English word “Ebreu” which comes from Old French derived from the Latin word “Hebraeus.” They all came from the Aramaic word “Ebrai” and the Hebrew word “‘ibri” which was one of the names used to refer to the Jewish people from “‘eber,” an ancestor of Abraham. It was the term used to refer to the Israelites before the conquest of Canaan after which they were known as Israelites. Although the word “Hebrew” is still used today to refer to the Israelites, it is used to refer to those who use the Hebrew language.

Summary:

1.“Jewish” is a word used to refer to everything that relates to the culture and religion of the Jews while “Hebrew” is also used to refer to the Jewish people or the Israelites but is also the name for their language.

2.
“Jewish” has a more religious connotation while “Hebrew” does not.

3.Today, Israelites are more often referred to as Jewish rather than Hebrews which was the term used before the conquest of Canaan.

4.The word “Jewish” comes from the word “Jew” which comes from the Latin word “Judaeus” meaning “from the land of Judea”; also from the Hebrew word “Yehudi” which is the term used to refer to a member of the tribe of Judah, the fourth son of Jacob while the word “Hebrew” comes from the Latin word “Hebraeus” and the Hebrew word “‘ibri” which was derived from “‘eber,” an ancestor of Abraham

Why is Jesus named Jesus?

 
by St. Maggie |  January 4, 2017

Dear Maggie,

Quote
Why was Christ named Jesus?  What is the significance of the name?

Thanks,

Nominally Noodling

Dear Nominally Noodling,

Thank ye for yer question.  We use a lot of names and titles for the son of God but rarely do we take the time to stop and wonder what they mean. 

First off we need to know that Jesus wasn’t known as “Jesus” to his friends and family.  If you went around Galilee at the height of Christ’s life asking for Jesus you would probably get a lot blank stares.  If you instead asked for Yeshua you might get pointed in the right direction.

Jesus is a translation of a translation of the Hebrew name Yeshua, the name we know as Joshua.  The angel Gabriel told Joseph to name the child in Mary’s womb Yeshua—which would have automatically registered with Jewish readers as a name that means “God saves” or “deliverer.”


When the Hebrew and Aramaic was transliterated to Greek (the language of the New Testament) then Joshua became Ἰησοῦς (Iēsous).  This was later transliterated into the Latin Iesvs. Through many a twist and turn the name Jesus didn’t come around until the 17th century. Even today, Jesus is just one of the many versions of the name given for God made human.  In me own Scottish we call the Son of God, Ìosa.

The many iterations of the name of this deliverer sent by God reflect our need, in each of our tongues, to say this name in a way we can understand and bring God near, just as God came near to us in Christ.  But we must also remember that in the roots of our name Jesus is a name that has great significance for the salvation history of God’s work in the world.  Just as Joshua in the book that bears his name led the people of God into the promise land, so this man we call Jesus leads us into a new life.

I hope that helps yer noodling!

God’s peace be with ya,

Maggie

Why Does the Date for Easter Change Every Year?

Why Does the Date for Easter Change Every Year?

Every year, we can expect Christmas to be celebrated on exactly the same date, no matter the circumstances: December 25. On the opposite end of the holiday spectrum is Easter, which can cause quite a bit of confusion because it can happen on any date between March 22 and April 25. That's more than a month of Sundays, which makes Easter a difficult day to pin down. The reason for the seeming randomness is that Easter is based on the biblical resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is said to have occurred after Passover, a Jewish festival determined by lunar cycles. To be precise, Passover is based on the occurrence of the first full moon of the spring -- after March 20. Easter Sunday is then set for the following Sunday. Because the full moon doesn't always happen on the same day, Easter becomes variable. In 1963, the Roman Catholic Church said that it would accept a fixed date for Easter if other Christian churches agreed to it, but as of 2019, nothing has been set in stone.

🕯️ The lighter (Sweet Misery :P) side of Easter:

It took 27 hours to make a single Peep when the candy originated in 1953.

Candy sales in the United States are at their highest during two holidays: Easter and Halloween.

The first Easter Egg Roll at the White House took place in 1878 under President Rutherford B. Hayes. ::)

Agelbert NOTE: I suspect Dentists are quite pleased with the commercialization of Sugar Addiction in the USA. The pharmaceutical corporation  executives making price gouging massive profits from the wave of diabetics in the USA that require insulin are, I am quite certain, pleased as well.
