He taught in the Jewish Temple. If Jesus were not a Jew, he would never have been allowed into any part of the Jewish Temple.
9. Loved the Temple
Yeshua's parents made the 140 mile round trip to Jerusalem every Passover. It was at the age of 12 that Yeshua stayed behind an extra three days to learn from the Temple teachers. Although He already understood the Torah well, His attitude of listening and questioning indicates love of the Hebrew scripture and respect for the teachers. He also respected the Temple itself, calling it His Father's. Near the end of His life, He praised a widow for giving all she had to the Temple.
10. Jewish Festivals
He observed Passover and went up to Jerusalem. He observed Succot and went up to Jerusalem. He also observed Hanukah and probably Rosh haShanah, going to Jerusalem on both those occasions as well, even though it's not a Torah command.

12. Dressed as a Jew

20. Circumcised

21. Tribe of Judah
Nevertheless, according to the Bible, the Messiah must be descended from the tribe of Judah as King David was and descended from King David himself . That is why the Messiah is called Son of David.

Jesus (Jesus) is from the Tribe of Judah . His earthly father was descended from David and His mother was as well .

His mother atoned according to Jewish law .

His aunt Elizabeth was Jewish (a descendant of Aaron, Moses' brother) and His uncle Zacharia was a Jewish priest .

Both of Yeshua's parents were from Nazarethand they returned there with the Child when they had done everything according to the Law of the Lord that His birth required . His aunt and uncle were also Torah observant Jews so we can see that probably the whole family took their faith very seriously.

23. Birthplace
Although He was born in Bethlehem, Jesus was raised in Nazareth. Both were Jewish towns at the time, according to archeologists and historians. Bethlehem is just south of Jerusalem while Nazareth is north, in the Galilee section.
24. Geneology
The book of the genealogy of Messiah Jesus ("Jesus Christ"), the son of David, the son of Abraham
25. Abraham was father of Jews
Abraham was the first Hebrew. God changed his name from Abram . In the Bible he is called Abram the Hebrew. So we can see that Jesus (Jesus) is descended from "Abram the Hebrew." Even to this day, Jews are also called "Hebrews", and the language of the Jews is "Hebrew".

Abraham and his descendants were given the unconditional covenant of the Promised Land and the covenant of circumcision. Abraham is the father of the Jews . Isaac was his son and Jacob was his grandson. Thus, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are known as the Patriarchs, the fathers of the Jews.
26. Jacob had 12 sons
Jacob's name was changed by God to "Israel" and he had twelve sons from whom come the Twelve Tribes of Israel. All of their descendants are known collectively throughout the Bible as the Children of Israel.
27. Judah was a Jew
One of those twelve sons was Judah and it is from his name that we get the word 'Jew'. Although Yehudah (Judah) was only one of the twelve, by 700 BCE, because of the course of Israel's history, the word Yehudee (Jew) came to mean any person descended from Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob . So, for instance, Saul haShaliach (the Apostle Paul) was of the tribe of Benjamin yet he self-identified as a Jew.
