The Babylonian Talmud

This website has been moved to:

The Babylonian Talmud, written from between 70-200 AD, says in Sanhedrin 43a: It was taught: On the eve of the Passover Yeshu was hanged. For forty days before the execution took place, a herald went forth and cried, 'He is going forth to be stoned because he has practised sorcery and enticed Israel to apostacy. Anyone who can say anything in his favour, let him come forward and plead on his behalf.' But since nothing was brought forward in his favour he was hanged on the eve of the Passover. […] Our rabbis have taught that Jesus had five disciples […] And a Master has said, 'Jesus the Nazarene practised magic and led Israel astray.'
