The Talmud may Provide the Best Extra-Biblical Proof of Who Jesus Is

The Talmud is a collection of rabbinical writings from the 1st and 2nd Centuries. Perhaps the best proof apart from Scripture that Jesus performed miracles comes from his greatest detractors – namely, the Jewish leadership of the time. Note the quote from the Baraila (Talmud):

“On the eve of the Passover Yeshu (meaning Jesus) was hanged because he practiced sorcery and enticed Israel to apostasy”

When the Talmud refers to Jesus’s being hanged – this is a reference to His crucifixion. Notice that the Jewish leadership of the day doesn’t doubt or even question that He performed wonders and miracles – they just attribute it to sorcery. Matthew 12: 24 even refers to this notion which the Jewish leadership erroneously held.

Even the Jewish Talmud admits that Jesus performed Miracles!
