Richard Bauckham, who's a genius in Johannine intricacies, explains that "Israel" is the term the Jews use about themselves to themselves, while "Jews/Judeans" (it's not quite as easy as just switching one for the other, by the way) is the term outsiders use for them. Thus, the Romans say, "King of the Jews."
