Oso Ha-Ish

An essay I wrote six years ago, and unquestionably the most popular article(s) I've posted online: Jesus In The Talmud:


There are many talmudic passages that are alleged to be referring to Jesus. However, talmudic scholars and historians have long debated whether these passages are actually about Jesus. The evidence is very unclear. We will show the passages that are discussed and offer some historical theories to explain them. Some of the passages we will examine do not even mention a name close to Jesus'. Others contain stories and names similar to Jesus'. What we will do is examine these passages, offer different theories to explain them, and point out the problems with these theories. We hope that we will be able to show to anyone with an open mind that there can be no consensus over whether the Talmud ever mentions Jesus...
