The first among Hebrews, a beverage of barley,
the first among Muslims, a city with Ali,
share a relationship which is the same
as a Biblical man's English and Spanish name.

Who is the Biblical figure?

A topical pop

Joseph

The first among Hebrews, a beverage of barley,

aleph - first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, ale - brew of barley.

the first among Muslims, a city with Ali,

Caliph - leader of the Muslim world, Cali - major Columbian city (also C + ali).

share a relationship which is the same, as a Biblical man's English and Spanish name.

Removing the final ph from Joseph gives José.
