he supreme hatred of Talmudic Judaism is reserved for and directed against
the hated "adherers to the text" of Scripture who are, thus, accused of spurning
the words of the Pharisee "Sages," as enshrined in the Babylonian Talmud.
These "adherers" to the Bible are classified as the primary enemies of Judaism.
They are all "idolators," "heathen," "goy." They rank not only as animals
— like the rest of the non-Jewish human race, but as the lowest and most
despised form of life. The Talmud frequently refers to Bible adherents scathingly
as "Samaritans" and "Cutheans," phraseology similarly used to excoriate
The Sadducees were the first of these enemies. They were the constant
opponents of the Pharisees and their imported Babylonian paganism, misrepresented
by the Pharisees as the Tradition of the Elders, the "Oral Law" ostensibly
transmitted privately to Moses and on down, superseding anything written
in the Bible.
In the six years of civil war between the Pharisees and Alexander Jannaeus,
King and High Priest of Jerusalem, 50,000 were killed on both sides before
this Sadducean ruler succumbed, and his widow Salome turned affairs over
to the Pharisees in 79 B.C. Her brother, Simon ben Shetah, had been waiting
for such an opportunity. The continued civil war resulted in the sons of
Alexander Jannaeus, Hyrcanus and Aristobulus, in 63 B.C., going hat in hand
to Pompey, Caesar's Roman General in Syria, asking him to invade Palestine
and slaughter their respective opponents. This is how Rome happened to be
in power when Christ was born. Only after Christ's Ascension did the Pharisees
Other enemies have been the Samaritans, whom Our Lord seemed to favor.
They had been brought in from Cutha and other far places in the World Assyrian
Empire, to take the place of the ten Israel tribes deported in 721 B.C. They
had adopted Biblical Judaism and opposed the return from Babylon in 536 B.C.
of the Pharisee-run population.
Each year a handful of Samaritans celebrate Passover on the site of their
former temple at Mt. Gerizim, an event contemptuously referred to by American
The Karaites arose in the 8th century in Babylonia under Anan to plague
the Pharisee top element by scorning the Talmud and holding up the Bible
as supreme authority. A molten stream of hatred, therefore, was turned on
them. With true Talmudic "Brotherhood" and "tolerance," Anan was expelled
from Babylonia, and founded the Karaite sect in Jerusalem. Later, when the
few remaining thousands of Karaites were favored by the Czar of Russia, although
classed as "untouchables" by Talmudists, the latter offered to join the Karaites
to get immunity from Czarist displeasure — but the Karaites turned them
down as hypocrites.
The supreme curses the Karaites have shared with Christians are due to the
adherence of the Karaites to the Bible, instead of the "sages," or Jewish
Talmud. They are likened to the Sadducees and Samaritans in this. (See
Exhibit 25, and
The ultimate object of hatred in Talmudic Judaism is Christ, and the targets
of Talmudic hatred are not just Gentile non-Jews, "the people who are like
an ass — slaves who are considered the property of the master" (Talmud,
Kethuboth 111a). Of these
non-Jews, the Christians are most insanely hated and loathed because their
doctrines are the opposite of every Talmudic doctrine. They rank not just
as animals, like the rest of non-Talmudic humanity, but almost as vermin,
to be eradicated. Language in the Talmud is virtually exhausted to find foul
and hated names for Christians.
Min (plural Minim) is used throughout the Talmud as a term to designate
Christians. In the "Shemoneh Esreh," or 18 Benedictions, the word has been
changed from time to time as wary non-Jews become aware of its meaning. Note
at the left column of
Exhibit 284 that "Zaddukim"
was substituted, and "Apikoresim."
In the right column of
Exhibit 284 we see "Epicureans"
substituted by Maimonides (a Talmudic pillar). Reference is made to uncensored
Talmud editions of
(left column, same Exhibit), Sanhedrin 27a,
Horayoth 11a, and
Gittin 45a. The Berechoth statement reads:
"The benediction relating to the minim was instituted in Jabneh [Palestine]
after the rest." The harangue goes on to decree vengeance against anyone
leaving out the benediction against the minim, "because we suspect him of
"The censored [ie. editions] have mumuar," says this exhibit from the Jewish
Encyclopedia, instead of minim. And, in
Sanhedrin 27a, mumar is used to
denounce as wholly disqualified one who eats meat which is not slaughtered
in kosher manner, thus showing "his contempt for the law" (of the Talmud).
The Talmud Gittin 45b reference states
that "a scroll of the Law which has been written by a min should be burnt."
Distilled hate is the theme. [See Sabbath 116a]
The Horayoth 11a citation from the
Talmud (page 79 of the Soncino edition, not reproduced here), is another
tirade against those who rank below "common people" — the minim. It cites
those who drink wine dedicated to an idol, referring to Holy Communion. Christ
is always the "idol" denounced by the Talmud, while real idolatry in regard
to spirits, planets, child burning to Molech, Baal filth, are permitted in
Present day Jews keep up a continual propaganda that burning anti-Christian,
immoral or subversive books is the depth of bigotry, bias and intolerance.
But the teaching in Sabbath 111a [correction: Sabbath 116a] of
the Talmud is even cited in the Jewish Encyclopedia (under Gentiles), which
holds that Christian books should be burned "without regard to the name of
God appearing therein." (See Exhibit 273, right hand
Characteristic of charging as a crime against others what Talmudists themselves
are doing, a Sanhedrin passage denounces Christ as a sorcerer (Talmud,
Exhibit 76). It was to refute this Talmudic teaching
of hate against Christ, that Martin Luther wrote his "Shemhamphoras" on the
charge that Christ did His miracles by sorcery, using the Tetragrammaton,
which, in some Talmud passages, He is said to have stolen and hidden in His
Christ was amazingly correct in designating the Talmudic Pharisees as children
of the Father of Lies.
Christianity Calls from Hell
Christianity is likened in the Talmud to one of two daughters of a horse-leech
calling from hell, "Bring, bring!" One is the government — "Which constantly
imposes fresh taxes and duties" and the other "Minuth" (Christianity) —
"Which continually lures the unwary to its erroneous teaching" — a Biblical
verse is then misused as a curse "applied to those converted to idolatry"
(Christianity). Then another says the voice of hell is calling to bring these
two "daughters," "who cry and call in this world," back to hell. (See
The Talmud speaks of a woman who confessed that her younger son was the offspring
of her older son and that incest was her lightest sin, and wanted to die
in peace but could not, for if incest was her lightest sin "it may be assumed
that she had also adopted minuth [Christianity] … that
is why she did not die … . Since she said of her
guilt that it is one of the lightest, it may be assumed that she was guilty
of idolatry [Christianity] also."
A tale follows about a Rabbi who visited every harlot in the world, crossing
seven rivers to get at the last one. He is allowed to die in peace because
he had not committed the unforgivable minuth (Christianity). (Talmud, Abodah
Zarah l7a, Exhibit 180)
Death from Snakebite Preferable
The Talmud says that Rabbi Ishmael (sage) has a nephew who is bitten by a
snake and wants to let Jacob, a Disciple of Jesus, heal him, but dies in
the middle of the sentence. The Rabbi thereupon exclaims: "Happy art thou
Ben Dama for thou wert pure in body and thy soul likewise left thee in
purity … ." His joy was because, of course, it was
preferable to die of snakebite than to be healed by a Christian. (Talmud,
Abodah Zarah 27b, see Exhibit 187)
Jesus and the High Priest's
The Talmud tale is told that, because of talking to a Christian Disciple
of Jesus, a Rabbi is suspected of being pro-Christian, which makes him deeply
ashamed. He tells the lie that Jesus taught that the hire of a harlot may
be used to build a privy for the high priest. (Abodah
Zarah 16b-17a) This last pleased the rabbi very much, he says.
This filthy and false story to defame Christ is used in a typical Pharisee
lie by Rabbi Louis Finklestein in his publication "The Pharisees" (See pages
xv-xvi of the Foreword. Exhibit 1,
Exhibit 2, and Exhibit 3 herein
are from same publication.) Any epithets directed at Pharisaism by Christians
in the early centuries Finklestein ascribes to conflict between Christians
and "their former comrades, who continued loyal to unaltered Pharisaism.
Nevertheless, the Pharisee and the Christian remained sufficiently close
to regard one another with respect." Then the above Rabbi Eliezer lie is
used as a compliment!: "Rabbi Eliezer ben Hyrcanus, one of the most orthodox
of the sages, offered high praise to an interpretation of Scripture given
by an early Christian" (Aboda Zara l7a).
This is the self-same libel on Christ!
More Lies to Fool Us
At the time the Jewish Encyclopedia was published in 1905 there was no English
translation of the Talmud with identifying folio numbers. The first, by Rodkinson
in 1903, was not only abridged, but also without folio numbers. Only with
the relatively recent Soncino English translation of the Talmud do we have
folio numbers and overt, unmistakable references which require no argument
or interpretation for non-Jews. However, in 1905, lies concerning the Talmud
were quite safe from prying non-Jewish eyes.
The 1905 Jewish Encyclopedia states: "During the first century of Christianity
the Rabbis lived on friendly terms with the minim" (Christians).
Anyone familiar with the liquid fire turned on Pharisaism by Christ in the
New Testament is not fooled by this. However, to buttress this lie, the above
false privy tale attributed to Jesus is told as though it indicated friendliness
— Abodah Zarah 16b-17a. Concerning the above
anti-Christian "snakebite" story
from the Talmud, the Encyclopedia then states
(Exhibit 267 herein):
"Ben Dama, a nephew of Rabbi Ishmael, having been bitten by a snake, allowed
himself to be cured by means of an exorcism uttered by the min Jacob, a
Does not this one series of circumstances once again illustrate how amazingly
correct Christ was in designating the Pharisees as children of the Father
Jesus Knew The Talmud
Rodkinson (M. Levi Frumkin), who made the first English translation of the
Babylonian Talmud, asks, in the section on the History of the
Talmud: [page 14]
Is the literature that Jesus was familiar with in his early years yet in
existence in the world? Is it possible for us to get at
it? … To such inquiries the learned class of Jewish rabbis
answer by holding up the Talmud … . The Talmud then,
is the written form of that which, in the time of Jesus, was called the
Traditions of the Elders, and to which he makes frequent allusions. (See
The Talmud and Mary, Mother
She is called "Miriam, a dresser of women's hair." She "committed adultery."
"She played the harlot with carpenters." (Exhibit 114)
All rabbinical sources ascribe to Jesus, "illegitimate birth ... the seducer
was a soldier by the name of Panthera [also called Pandira. and Stada]."
"Pappus [husband of Mary] has nothing to do with the story of Jesus, and
was only connected with it because his wife happened to be called "Miriam"
[Maryl and was known to be an adulteress."
All the Life of Jesus (Toledot Yeshu) "editions contain a similar story of
a dispute which Jesus carried on with the scribes who on the ground of that
dispute declared him to be a bastard." (Jewish Encyclopedia, "Jesus,"
Christ as "Balaam"
Under the name of "Balaam" the most lewd Talmud passages concerning Jesus
appear. Proof that Jesus is called "Balaam" is found in the Jewish
Encyclopedia (under "Balaam") which, after enumerating His alleged loathsome
qualities, states: "Hence … the pseudonym 'Balaam' given
to Jesus in Sanhedrin 106b and
Gittin 57a." (See Exhibit 111,
and Exhibit 279)
In the same article, we are told that the Talmud likens the Gospel Christians
and Christ to Baal sex-worshippers because of whose abominations 24,000
Israelites died of plague at the time of Balaam.
Because Balaam had been asked to curse the Israelites but instead did not
and foretold the coming Messiah
24:17), the flimsy pretext is made that Jesus was a curse like Balaam.
"He is pictured as blind of one eye and lame in one foot and his disciples
distinguished by three morally corrupt qualities …" He
is called "one that ruined a people," and His churches are likened to nudist
And, "this hostility against his memory finds its climax in the dictum that
whenever one discovers a feature of wickedness or disgrace in his life, one
should preach about it." (Sanhedrin
Turning to Exhibit 114, which is Sanhedrin 106a-l06b
of the Talmud, mentioned above, we see the likening of Jesus to the supposed
act of Balaam in causing 24,000 Israelites to go whoring and die of plague
(some 1450 years before Christ was born). He is due for his "reward" for
this infamy. His mother, Mary, is "She who … played the
harlot with carpenters … They subjected him to
four deaths, stoning, burning, decapitation and
strangulation … he was thirty-three or thirty-four years
old." Another says: "I … have seen Balaam's Chronicle
in which it stated, 'Balaam the lame was thirty years old when Phinehas the
Robber killed him.'"
The footnote explains:
"Balaam is frequently used in the Talmud as a type for Jesus." The mother
of Jesus is identified, the four deaths enumerated, "and …
all the Balaam passages are anti-Christian in tendency, Balaam being used
as an alias for Jesus, Phinehas the Robber is thus taken to represent Pontius
Pilate, and the Chronicle of Balaam probably to denote a Gospel."
Verifying the Jewish Encyclopedia account above on Balaam being Jesus in
the Talmud we see: "in the case of the wicked Balaam: whatever you find written
about him, lecture upon it to his disadvantage." (Exhibit
115) Christian churches are likened to tents for Baal prostitution, with
old women outside, young ones inside to get customers drunk and disrobe and
worship the "idol," Jesus, in Baal manner, by prostitution.
Hanging a calumny on the brief mention in the Bible that Balaam was slain
32:8), the above passage in Sanhedrin is cited by the Jewish Encyclopedia
thus: "In the process of killing Balaam
xxxi.8], all four legal methods of execution — stoning, burning,
decapitating, and strangling — were employed" [Sanh. 1.c]. (See
Exhibit 274) "He met his death at the age of thirty-three
(Ibid) and it is stated that he had no portion in the world to come"
(Sanh. x. 2; 90a).
Sanhedrin 90a of the Talmud, denying "Balaam" a place in the world to come,
begins with Exhibit 96 herein. There it is stated that
the resurrection being denied by Sadducees and Samaritans, "It was to oppose
these that the doctrine was emphatically asserted in the second of the Eighteen
Benedictions." The "sin" of pronouncing the Tetragrammaton is cited against
Christ and Christians. (Exhibit 97)
The curse of Christians, as those who pronounce the "Name" as "spelt"
(Tetragrammaton) and read "uncanonical books," begins with a Mishnah (starting
with Exhibit 97). Vague meanderings to throw off a
possible Christian reader appear in the footnotes (Exhibit
97) with a hint that the "uncanonical books" may mean this or that, but:
"There are indications, however, that something more is meant."
But the footnote to "uncanonical books," still being discussed 68 pages later
(See Exhibit 102) overtly reveals that the reference
is to the New Testament, and that the word "Sadducees" is used to indicate
The 18 Benedictions
The "religious" Orthodox Jew recites the "Eighteen Benedictions," or "Shemoneh
Esreh," three times week days, four times on holidays and Sabbaths, the 7th
and 12th of which curse the Christians and non-Jews to hell and perdition.
Thus, the "good Orthodox Jew" gives us Christians 6 cursings on ordinary
days, 8 on "specials." Note all the varieties of double talk which have been
utilized down the centuries to keep the truth about the "Shemoneh Esreh"
from the non-Jews, who might not be friendly to those who recite this
"Brotherhood" litany religiously 6 to 8 times daily! Note: "In order to obviate
hostile misconstructions, the text was modified …," and
one change after another [page 15]
to fool the non-Jew is enumerated. (See Exhibit
The 12th benediction, the "Birkat ha-Minim" (curse against Christians, etc.)
"furnished the traducers of Judaism and the Jews a ready weapon of attack."
(See Exhibit 284) This "Petition Against Enemies"
(non-Jews) is called an "imprecatory appeal." "Imprecatory" means, of course,
"invoking evil, a curse" (Webster). It is further stated by the cautious
Jewish Encyclopedia (same Exhibit), "The seventh
benediction … looks like a duplication and is superfluous."
The Jewish Encyclopedia also cites a recommendation by the "sages" for daily
recitation of the "benediction:" "Blessed be thou who hast not made me a
goy." (See Exhibit 273)
In the Talmud, the Christian is also planted in Hell for eternity under a
deluge of "boiling excrement" if opposing "Judaism:"
"Whoever mocks the words of the Sages is punished with boiling hot excrement."
(Talmud, Gittin 57a; Exhibit 202)
On this same page, where the ordinary Christian gets this eternal fate, Christ
is similarly punished forever in hell with "boiling semen."
The Talmud — Five Deaths
Jesus, as stated in both the Talmud and Jewish Encyclopedia, gets "four legal
methods of execution" and is Crucified as well, as a blasphemer of Pharisee
Jesus stoned, then "hanged" or crucified, Sanhedrin 43a-45b
(Exhibit 46 and Exhibit 48);
Sanhedrin 67a (Exhibit 75), where under another phony
name (Ben Stada) Jesus is identified as "Jesus of Nazareth." See Jewish
Encyclopedia, Exhibit 277 and Exhibit
As to Judas, we are told (Exhibit 279) that: "when
Judas found he could not touch Jesus in any way, in aerial battle, he defiled
him" (the "privy concept," once again, which runs through the Talmud).
Jesus' apostles all killed, Sanhedrin 43a, b (Exhibit
47). Their names are decoded by Jewish Encyclopedia (see
Exhibit 278, right column.)
Jesus crucified as a "blasphemer," Sanhedrin 46a (Exhibit
51), Jewish Encyclopedia (Exhibit 276).
Jesus burned, Sanhedrin 52a (Exhibit 52); manner of
burning, Yebamoth 6b (Exhibit 151), verified by Jewish
Encyclopedia under "Balaam" (Exhibit 274). He is "lowered
into dung up to his armpits then a hard cloth was placed within a soft one,
wound round his neck and the two loose ends pulled in opposite directions
forcing him to open his mouth. A wick was then lit, and thrown into his mouth
so that it descended into his body and burnt his bowels …
his mouth was forced open with pinchers against his wishes
(Exhibit 52) And: "The death penalty of 'burning' was
executed by pouring molten lead through the condemned man's mouth into his
body, burning his internal organs. (Exhibit 152)
Jesus strangled: "He was lowered into dung up to his armpits then a hard
cloth was placed within a soft one, wound round his neck, and the two ends
pulled in opposite directions until he was dead." (Talmud, Sanhedrin 52a,
This is repeated (Sanhedrin 106b; Exhibit 114) and
verified by the Jewish Encyclopedia (Exhibit 274).
Jesus in hell where His punishment is "boiling in hot semen." (Talmud, Gittin
57a; Exhibit 202) The subject is identified as Jesus
in a footnote, also in the Jewish Encyclopedia under "Balaam."
Christians in hell (in the above passage) are punished by "boiling hot excrement"
which is the punishment for all who mock "at the words of the sages" (i.e.
Jesus "committed bestiality," "corrupted the people," is "turned into hell."
(Talmud Sanhedrin 105a; Exhibit 106 and
Jesus "limped on one foot" and "was blind
in one eye," "he practiced enchantment by means of his membrum," "he committed
bestiality with his ass," he was a fool who "did not even know his beast's
mind." (Talmud, Sanhedrin l05a-105b; Exhibit 108 and
109) The ridiculous and foul misuse of
5:27 about Sisera's dying convulsions meaning sexual intercourse is here
applied to Jesus, with a footnote "explanation" of
5:27: "This is taken to mean sexual intercourse …"
Jesus attempts to seduce women, is excommunicated by a rabbi and then worships
a brick, was a seducer of Israel, and practiced magic. (Talmud, Sanhedrin
l07b; Exhibit 117), also the Jewish Encyclopedia (See
Jesus is cited in the index of the Sanhedrin portion of Talmud, "chief repository
of the criminal law of the Talmud" (See Exhibit 43),
which shows the page numbers where He is denounced. (Exhibit
Jesus' resurrection is cursed: "Woe unto him who maketh himself alive by
the name of God." (Talmud, Sanhedrin 106a; Exhibit 111)
The trial of Jesus: "It was by the action of the priests that Jesus was sent
before Pontius Pilate." The Sanhedrin priests "had most reason to be offended
with Jesus' action in cleansing the Temple," the probable place of His trial,
according to the Talmud. His cry: "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken
me?" … was in all its implications itself a disproof of
the exaggerated claims made for him. The very form of his punishment would
disprove these claims in Jewish eyes. No Messiah that Jews could recognize
could suffer such a death; for "He that is hanged is accursed of God"
xxi. 23). This refers to an "evil son" and Talmudist Rashi adds "an insult
to God." The foregoing is from the Jewish Encyclopedia under "Jesus." (See
Other foul charges against Jesus and His mother, His being a "bastard," and
the like, follow. (Exhibit 277 from the same Encyclopedia)
