Was Jesus, in the Christian bible, a Jew?


If so then why aren't Christians Jewish? I have been doing a lot of studying about the Jewish and Christian faiths over the last few days and am confused at how so many Christians believe Jesus was Jewish yet they themselves are not. Someone please enlighten me.

    Yep, and he probably had dark hair and brown eyes, not the fair hair and blue eyes so often depicted in our Western societies.
