In the newly released Exodus; Gods and kings, were the slaves Jewish or Hebrew?
The slaves numbering some 600,000 does appear to be an exadgeration!
I'd say it doesn't really matter because that movie sucks big hairy ones, but technically they're both. They're Hebrew people of the Jewish faith, and both terms tend to be interchangeable.
And if you want to watch a movie based on the story of Exodus that isn't abject death to sit through, you can always watch Cecile B. DeMille's "The Ten Commandments" or Dreamworks' "The Prince of Egypt." I prefer the latter, as it has a much greater emotional payoff in its story and the epic scope and masterful soundtrack are unforgettable, but the former is enjoyable, too--it's a bona fide cinematic classic with groundbreaking visual effects for its time.
As I understand it the Israelites weren't called Jewish until Israel split into 2 kingdoms, Israel and Judah.
