Incidentally Nik. I don’t believe that any Jews in Roman Palestine would have referred to themselves as “Palestinian”. The word is not even mentioned in the Christian scriptures. The name is mentioned in its Hebrew form several times in the Hebrew Bible as a vague regional reference probably referring to the southwestern portion of the territory occupied by the Philistines, which would be modern day Gaza. But certainly not as a description of the entire region.
