Was Jesus a Palestinian jew or a christian?

Jesus was human. Thats all you need to know.

He couldnt be a Christian. He was, if he existed, a Jew in Roman Judea, parts of which later became known as Palestine.

Jewish. How could he have been Palestinian? There was no such thing as a Palestinian then. When Jesus was around, the area was known as Judea & Samaria (the exact name Israelis refer to the West Bank as now) there was also the Galilee, etc. There was no Palestinian identity during that time.

He converted. And he had a Personal Jesus as his Lord and Saviour.

Neither, he was a Judean Jew https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:First_century_Iudaea_province.gif

There was no such place as Palestine at the time of Jesus. Jesus is a Jew; a Hebrew citizen of Israel. The region was renamed Palestine by the Romans nearly 50 years after Jesus death - to mock the rebellious Jews by naming their land after the Philistines; the ancient enemy of the Jews. Jesus is not a Christian, but the paragon of Christianity.

Jew from Jerusalem.

The fictional character jesus is a kike.

A Galilean Jew, later a Nazarene

How could he have been a Christian? Are you a child or insane? ~

JEW!!!!!!!!!! Read your bible first then look at what a Christian is! CHRISTIAN – A follower or believer in Jesus Christ.

The fact is that Jesus was a Jew and died a Jew. He had no thought of bringing about a new religion, only in helping to fulfill his own religion. He certainly would have been horrified if he had learned that a new religion would be formed with him as its basis and that it made a deity of him. It was only some time AFTER the death of Jesus and the formation of the Christian church, along with Pauls teachings, that the message of Jesus was modified in both its nature and to those whom it was to be preached. But the limits to whom his message was to be spread to still slips through in other passages, such as Matthew 10:5 and Matthew 15:24. Jesus was proclaiming that god would imminently overturn the existing order and establish a new kingdom--the kingdom of heaven and righteousness (Matthew 4:17; Matthew 10:7; Matthew 4:17). And the Romans executed him because they perceived him to be a rebel who was seeking to establish a new kingdom. That is why they placed the placard saying The King of the Jews on the cross. They wanted him to be an object lesson to those who would seek to overthrow them and establish a new kingdom. By the time the gospels were written, there had been a schism between the original Jewish followers of Jesus and those who followed Paul, who was the actual originator of Christianity. Paul brought in many esoteric and pagan ideas and added them to the myths about Jesus that had developed in the years following his execution. Paul also expanded his church by preaching to and bringing in Gentiles, who did not hold any particular allegiance to the Jews. In addition, the Christian church at the time was trying to make their way in the hostile Roman world, and they did not want to antagonize the Romans (see Romans 13:1-2), so they minimized the Roman involvement in the death of Jesus and laid the blame on the Jews, which furthered even more the separation of the new religion from its Jewish roots. That resulted in the origin of Christianity. Here is some relevant material relating to the above. There is no contemporary account of Jesus at the time he was living. Even the New Testament accounts were written well after his death. As far as non-biblical sources, all the Christians can do is to refer to documents that were written long after he died. It was only several years after his death that his followers eventually became numerous enough and influential enough that he became more well known. By then, the myths that had developed about him after his death magnified his persona and made him something he wasnt. The trial of Jesus by Pontius Pilate was a later fabrication by the Christian leaders that they devised to prevent their followers from instigating actions against the Romans by blaming the death of Jesus on the Jews. Pilate was a Roman official and he was hardly the kind of person he was made out to be in the gospels. He would have had no compunction against condemning Jesus as a rebel. In fact, if he had let Jesus go free, he would have had to answer to his superiors for not condemning a rebel against their authority. As Josephus makes it clear, Pilate was arrogant and brutal as procurator. See also Luke 13:1. The Jewish leaders could have had Jesus executed if they found cause to do so. They did not need to turn him over to the Romans to be executed. Read Acts 6:5-15 and Acts 7:54-60, which clearly indicates that the Jewish leaders could execute those they condemned to death. The claim that they did not have the authority to execute those they condemned to death, and that was the reason they turned him over to the Romans, was a later fabrication to lay the blame for the death of Jesus on the Jews and to explain why the Romans, rather than the Jews, executed him. The fact is that the Jewish authorities did not have cause to execute Jesus. Jesus did not actually claim to be god-- that claim was one of Pauls additions to the myths about Jesus, and the writers of the gospels wrote them accordingly by putting words into the mouth of Jesus. So what it boils down to is that Jesus was executed solely for being a religious agitator who was proclaiming gods imminent overthrow of the existing order, and not because of the later fabrications that were added to his message.

Neither. Fictional
