"There are only a few clear references to Jesus in the Babylonian Talmud..."
Well, actually, no there aren't.
"The Jesus Narrative In The Talmud" by Gil Student
There are four main passages in the Talmud that are alleged by some to discuss the story of Jesus' life and death.
What we will do here is to analyze closely these passages and see the reasons one may or may not attribute these stories to the life of Jesus. We will also look at another two passages that help us identify our protagonist(s).
We will quickly realize that there are great difficulties in stating that any of these texts refer to Jesus.
We will see that a large number of historians and talmudists have addressed these issues and have concluded that either none of these passages refer to Jesus or that they refer to a proto-Jesus, whose life was later obfuscated by the theologically motivated rewriting of history...
...It seems clear by now that there is no consensus whether Jesus is mentioned at all in the Talmud.
Most of the supposed "blasphemies" of Jesus and Mary in the Talmud do not refer to them at all. However, there can be no denying, and no rabbi would deny this, that the authors of the Talmud did not believe in Jesus' messiahship or his divinity.
If you are looking for Christian fellowship then Jewish literature is not the place to look.
However, there is no basis at all to state unequivocably that the Talmud calls Jesus a bastard or that Mary was a prostitute who had sex with many men. As has been shown, those passages definitely do not refer to Jesus...
Fascinating. Thank you.
Try Stone's Tanach it's wonderful!
