HELPS Lexicon excerpt

Cognate: 2475 Israēlítēs (from 2474/Israēl, "Israel") – an Israelite; a descendant of the elect-nation of Israel.  2475/Israēlítēs ("Israelite") has a positive (covenant) overtone, implying someone is a true covenant-believer.  In contrast, 1445/Hebraíos ("Jew") in the NT has a negative implication of being hostile to Christ, the true Messiah.
