Jesus in the Talmud

return to the main TORAH page

Since converts from Judaism revealed the foundational teachings of Judaism at the Disputations of Paris (1240 A.D.) and Tortosa (1413-1414 A.D.), the rabbis have invested much effort in sanitizing vernacular translations of the Talmud. When confronted with the evidence, the Jews have tried many tricks to explain away and conceal their supremacist, genocidal, perverse, and blasphemous creed.


These sanitized editions of their “Torah” are useful to the rabbis: “See it’s not there.” Or “The tractate is about ‘Balaam’”


In the sanitized Talmud editions numerous code word substitutions are used for Christians: min, Cuthean, Egyptian, Epicurean, etc. Numerous code word substitutions are used for  Jesus of Nazareth: “that man,” “the carpenter,” “Balaam,” “ben Pandera” (a reference to the Talmud’s teaching that Jesus was the bastard of a whore who committed adultery with a Roman soldier named Pandera). Sometimes they will just leave a blank space.


Lest you be deceived by the rabbis’ claim “Jesus isn’t even mentioned in the Talmud”:


“Not there”? Not big enough for you?  Can’t see it?





The rabbis’ ignominious “Torah” (Torah SheBeal Peh) teaches that Jesus was a bastard born of an adulterous relationship (Kallah 51a) of a whore (Sanhedrin 106a) and that He is now in Hell boiling in feces because he “worshipped a brick” and, semen because he is accused of sexual perversion. (Gittin 57a).


The Talmud at Sanhedrin 43a boasts that the Sanhedrin convicted Jesus and, at the Jewish court’s instigation, He was crucified, “hanged,” even though the Romans were “inclined toward acquittal” of Jesus; therefore Jewish denial and blame-shifting to the Romans is a lie. The infamous Toldoth Yeschu, Maimonides’ Hilkoth Akun V, 3 and Letter to Yemen), and the 1905 Jewish Encyclopedia (page 170), all boast of Jewish responsibility for Christ’s death. The Talmud notes that Jesus deserved four more deaths. Sanhedrin 52a suggests Jesus should have been strangled while immersed in dung. There are other Talmudic passages that describe Jesus as an idolatrous sex freak, practicing black magic —and more.


The rabbis teach that Jesus Himself was an idolater [Sanhedrin 43a, 107b] who worshipped a brick [Babylonian Talmud Sanhedrin 67a, 107b], so He was justly executed. There are, of course, other numerous scurrilous accusations against Jesus in the Talmud and rabbinical literature. Though the passages have been denied and expurgated Talmud editions have been published, often using code words for Jesus, Princeton Professor and Director of Judaic Studies Peter Schafer has examined dozens of Talmud editions in the original and vernacular languages. Schafer not only adduces the explicit references to Jesus of Nazareth, but he also traces the code words used in the Talmud editions expurgated and sanitized for Gentile consumption. Schafer traces from edition to tractate to folio how “Balaam,” “that man,” “the carpenter,” “ben Pandera” (son of Pandera), the blank spaces, and the rest of the code words refer to Jesus of Nazareth. In his book Jesus in the Talmud (ISBN 13: 978-0691129266) Schafer has affirmed that the Talmud teaches that Jesus was an idolater [Sanhedrin 43a, 107b], was a mamzer [bastard] conceived adulterously in niddah [menstrual filth] by a Roman soldier named Pandera [Kallah 51a] of a whore [Sanhedrin 106a] and that He is now in Hell boiling in feces and, in some editions because Jesus is accused of sexual perversion, semen [Gittin 57a]


When confronted with these scurrilous passages, Jews will often pretend that these passages are ancient and no longer taught. Oh, really??? See:

Yeschu—the rabbis’ insider insult on the Holy Name of Jesus


Note the common Jewish insult on the Holy Name of Jesus. The Hebrew use of “Yeshu” (ישו) in Chagall’s blasphemy is a Jewish mockery of Jesus’ actual Hebrew name “Yeschua” (ישוע). Yeshu is a Hebrew acronym for:

“May his name and memory be blotted out.”
