Yes Jesus was Jewish. Christianity was begun by the early followers of Jesus after he was rose from the dead.

thehairnazi: Christ; The word is often misunderstood to be the surname of Jesus due to the numerous mentions of Jesus Christ in the Christian Bible. The word is in fact used as a title, hence its common reciprocal use Christ Jesus, meaning The Anointed One, Jesus. Followers of Jesus became known as Christians because they believed that Jesus was the Christ, or Messiah, prophesied about in the Tanakh (the Old Testament). The majority of Jews reject this claim and are still waiting for Christ to come. Most Christians now wait for the Second Coming of Christ when they believe he will fulfill the rest of the Messianic prophecy

The Christian religion is something Paul of Tarsus (a city which was one of the major centers of Mithraism by the way) made up.
