Then what is the world to describe one who believe in Judiasm.... Is of the spiritual lineage of Abraham and Isaac.... But isn't necessarily of the Israelite ethnic, heredity lineage?

Aramaic was another language that was used in the region.,,, most non-american countries speak more than one language. Aramaic was the primary language or the cities where Jesus was raised... But Hebrew was the official language of the faith

Read A History of the Jews by Paul Johnson.  It's a captivating book from beginning to end (some based on conjecture I'm sure) and can answer many of these questions.

Literally it means that you're from the Tribe of Judah. Most Jews are, since the other 10 tribes are lost, and the 12th tribe is Levi, meaning Levites and Priests. They still exist, but they're still called Jews even though they're not from the tribe of Judah.
