Difference Between Jews and Gentiles

jewsJews vs Gentiles

Jews and gentiles are different in their religious, cultural and other traditional aspects. A Jew is one who is descendent of the patriarch Israel. Gentiles are those who worshipped Jehovah according to the patriarchal system and Jews are those who worshipped God as per the Law of Moses. It has been said that the Jews were only given the right to worship God. Meanwhile, the Gentiles believed in Jesus. Jews are believed to have come from God and Gentiles are not considered so.

The word Gentile has Latin roots and the word Jew is related to Hebrew. In Latin, gentiles means belonging to a tribe or clan. The word gentiles refer to non-Israelite tribes in the King James Version of the Bible. But today Gentile stands for “non-Jew”. The word Jews has been derived from Hebrew yehudim.

Gentiles are considered to be non-Hebrew people who were descendants of Abraham of Israel. On the other hand, the Jewish ancestry is traced to the patriarchs of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

The Jews do not consider Jesus as God and believe that a Messiah will descend on the earth who will unite everyone under the Kingdom of God. They believe that this messiah through the unification of mankind will bring justice and peace to every one. On the other hand, the gentiles believe in every other thing that the Jews believe in. In modern times, Christians are called gentiles and as such they believe in the Son of God.

While Jews follow Judaism, the Gentiles follow Christianity. Judaism is decentralized and there is no one like Pope or other decision-making authorities as in Christianity. Each Jewish congregation is separate and is headed by a Rabbi, who is the spiritual leader.

  1. This needs to be rewritten in an unbiased manner. The information provided is not bad it’s just too slanted the way it’s currently written.

    • This does not make any sense at all. Specifically, Gentiles are a specific nation of people who descend from Noah’s eldest son Yapheth. (See Genesis 10), and when you read that chapter you will find that Gentiles are europeans and asians. The Most High designated man by their respective nations and languages, not according to their races as was developed and propagated by gentile europeans. Therefore, the descendants of Shem are not gentiles or the descendants of Ham. Hebrews descend from Shem through Eber who’s seed is ultimately Abram. Please stop playing games and read the TORAH. The Children of Israel are Hebrew Israelites. The Eurogentiles have created their own religion and do not worship YHWH ELOHIM of Israel, and will be judge for the idolatry and paganism, and the treatment of the Children of Israel during their captivity in America. Yes, in America the daughter of bablyon. The Children of Israel are the so called negroes. The only people who fit and fullfil every prophecy in the TORAH. The TORAH and the Epistles are the history, law, statutes, and prophecy of one people, Israel. No other nation can even teach the word of YHWH except his saints, Israel.

  2. Jews believe that the entire universe comes from god, as too the gentiles.

  3. In the biblical text the word gentile is anyone other than a Hebrew. All Judahites are Hebrews but not all Hebrews are Judahites. The word JEW is a slang word for some one who is not a Judahite Hebrew. The word JEW did not come into useage until about 200 years ago in the English language. The word Jew is most often associated with the Canaanite Jews of the first century before Jesus of Nazareth was born. They came from the surrounding tribes who were not Hebrews. Hebrews are two family lines known as the House of Israel and the House of Judah. The house of Israel being the larger of the two.
    In the biblical text in the New Testament the word gentile or nation has two different groups of people being called the same thing. The people of God were the ethnee and the people of the devil were the ethnoon or heathen pagan gentiles.
    God only sees two kind of people, Hebrews and gentiles.

  4. The article is grotesquely inaccurate. Jews believe that all people are descended from Adam, so there is no distinction regarding whether they “come from God” or not. Everyone does. Gentiles, obviously, have been around since long before people started worshiping Jesus, so not all Gentiles were Christians and not all Gentiles today are Christians. Jews believe that there is only one God but that everyone is entitled to worship Him. When the Jewish Temple stood in Jerusalem, not only Jews but Gentiles as well came to pay obeisance.

  5. Where does Romans 10:12 fit in to all of this?

  6. I believe it…… that’s all i can say :D

  7. Jehovah…. it’s nice to see people using God’s name, Jehovah!
