Emphasis supplied. Still what has been the result? The Talmud exists today and not one letter in it is missing. They are admitted to our familiarity only through our mercy. Alexander VI Borgia , known in history as the most profligate of the Popes, was rather favorably inclined toward the Jews. The beginning of the Reformation influenced his action in the controversy between Reuchlin and Pfeferkorn which he settled in such a way as not to give any encouragement to those who demanded reforms in the Church.
Page When Martin Luther nailed up his famous Theses on the cathedral door of Wittenberg, thereby setting the machinery of the Reformation in motion, the fate of the eager Jewries of Renaissance Italy were sealed. Threatened by this dangerous movement of secession, the Catholic Church began to set its house in order, more systematically and more comprehensively than ever before, in the process known as the Counter-Reformation. No longer were the Popes to be pre-eminently enlightened patrons of literature, science and the arts, with worldly inclinations and interests.
Whereas the Talmud had been printed under Leo X, a Medici, in , the Pope denounced the Talmud, and the other restrictions were set up. History of the Jews of Italy , pages and following. He maintained the ghetto in Rome until it was abolished by the Italian occupation of Rome His influence, nevertheless, was prejudicial to them. He encouraged anti-Semitism by bestowing distinctions on leading anti-Semitic politicians and authors, as Lueger and Drumont.
A Judaized France was the result he deplored and sought to avoid. Along with these protective ordinances, there existed restrictive and precautionary decrees with regard to them. The civil power was in accord with the Church in this, since, as Delassus says, "they both had the same interest in preventing the nations from being invaded by the Jewish element and thereby losing control of society.
The precautionary decrees concerned the professions, education, and business positions. Such foolishness they do not have from Israel, but from Goyim. For thus the historians write that the Greek Plato daily gave such praise and thanks to God, if such blasphemy and haughtiness could be called the praise of God.
For that man [Plato] also praised his gods for these three things, that he was a man and not an animal, a man and not a woman, a Greek and not a non-Greek or barbarian. Such is the praying of a fool and the praise of a blasphemous barbarian; just as the Mals imagine that they alone are human beings and all the rest of the world nothing but inhuman beings, ducks, or mice. The Jews desire no more from their Messiah than that he should be a Kochba" leader of the Pharisee revolt against Rome in A. How much better it would be if they did not have God's Commandment or did not know it.
For if they did not have it, they would be uncondemned. For I see in their writings how they curse us Goyim and wish us all evil in their schools and prayers. No Heathen has done such things and none would do so except the Devil himself, and those whom he possesses like he possesses the Jews. We do not curse them, but wish them all manner of bodily and spiritual good; permit them to lodge with us.
Jerusalem was destroyed more than years ago and during that time we Christians have been tortured and persecuted by Jews in all the world. For nearly years we might well complain that during that time they captured and killed the Christians, which is the clear truth. On top of that, we do not know to this day what Devil brought them into our country. We did not fetch them from Jerusalem. On top of that no one is holding them now.
Now what are we going to do with these rejected condemned Jewish people? Freedman promotes scholar Rev. Herford's view that the "harlot" is a reference to Mary, mother of Jesus. It is of course, impossible for any man to undergo "four deaths" as told in Sanhedrin b, above. This detail does not aid in the identification. It may, however, express the fate that the Sages thought "Balaam" deserved.
Rabbi Michael Rodkinson omits that passage in Sanhedrin a without footnote or comment. Sanhedrin b continues. A Sage is asked a question about Balaam by a min. That a min is asking after the details of Balaam's life is a further clue to the identity of that character. In the Soncino Talmud, this paragraph follows immediately on the paragraph quoted above.
Rabbi Dr. Freedman, translator, does not explain why a Christian would ask the Pharisee about Jesus, but he interprets this passage as follows:. The interpretation that "Balaam" is Jesus is persistent, but the denial is also persistent. Let us consider the following points. The ADL states: "In the nineteenth century, when the field of academic Jewish studies was in its infancy …" — Jewish studies has been out of its infancy for more than 2, years.
Since the time of Ezra the Scribe in about B. Not all those "nineteenth century" scholars were nineteenth century scholars — the Jewish Encyclopedia was published , Rev. Herford's Christianity in the Talmud and Midrash was published in , and the Soncino Talmud was published between and Those of the Soncino would be more accurately described as twentieth century scholars.
The Jewish Religion: Its Influence Today
Freedman, was a unitarian Gentile, though well respected among Jewish scholars. Herford's endorsement of the Soncino Talmud is printed on the Soncino dust jacket. It indicates that, to the ADL and the public they are addressing, those passages are politically sensitive. It is apparently important to the ADL to assert that the Talmud is not hostile to Christianity, so important that ordinary rules of scholarship may be bent in the assertion.
This, too, is a form of censorship. Given the legal clout of the ADL and the readiness with which it blackens reputations with the "anti-Semitic" label, scholars in these matters are not free to draw conclusions according to the rules of scholarship. Instead, with the constant threat that statements considered unfavorable to the Talmud will result in punishment of the scholar, scholars are driven by political concerns to draw the "correct" conclusions and censor their own work.
In the last Soncino footnote we cited, Rabbi Dr. Freedman quotes Rev. Herford that Balaam is "frequently used in the Talmud as a type for Jesus. In the next passage, Balaam limped on one foot, was blind in one eye, practiced enchantment by means of his membrum , and committed bestiality with his ass.

Elizabeth Dilling understood this passage to be about Jesus, and certainly we could not fault her or anyone else who interprets it in that way. According to The Jewish Encyclopedia , Jesus was often accused by the Talmudists of performing magic. So Elizabeth Dilling is on firm ground believing that the passage stating that Balaam "performed magic by means of his membrum" refers to Jesus of Nazareth. Too many have glossed over the problems between Jews and Christians, but America is fortunate to have a rabbi who is willing to broach the subject.
That rabbi is Schmuley Boteach, a popularizer of Judaism and the author of more than a dozen books, including Judaism for Everyone. In a section of that book, entitled "Jewish Contempt for Other Nations," Rabbi Boteach first mentions the abuse that Jews have suffered at the hands of Christians.
He continues:. Notice that when Rabbi Boteach refers to "the New Testament's insidious attacks," he does not mention the name of the person who launched the insidious attacks. That person who launched the attack against the Pharisaic Jews Rabbi Boteach's religious ancestors was of course, Jesus of Nazareth. If Rabbi Boteach is too uncomfortable to mention His name, we question whether the wounds have been healed. For its part, the Roman Catholic Church seems to be willing to go the distance.
What will the Vatican do next? Will Cardinal Ratzinger declare that the Gospels were mistranslated, that Jesus was misquoted, or that Jesus mis-spoke, and has since issued a retraction and apology? Consider how accommodating the Vatican has been on another issue: the virginity of Mary, mother of Jesus. It seems that scholars studying the Dead Sea Scrolls have decided that the Gospels were mistranslated: the word that was translated as "virgin" was really the Hebrew word for "young woman. If Jesus was not born to a virgin, Jesus' birth was not exceptional, and Jesus was not God made flesh.
Thus the Vatican is planning to change a keystone doctrine of Christianity on the basis of a Hebrew word written by Essene scribes, members of a Jewish sect. According to the Jewish faith, Jesus' birth was natural. Moreover, the Essenes could not have any direct knowledge of Mary's situation. Even given that the Vatican is willing to concede Christianity for a single word, how will it explain verses such as the following?
Whether one is an atheist, an agnostic, a Muslim, a Hindu, or a Christian, the truth of Rabbi Boteach's statement is obvious:. To echo the sentiments of Rabbi Sacks, we need patience to find out about each others' faiths. In the meantime, we urge Rabbi Boteach and his co-religionists to come forward and openly discuss the Talmud's charges against Jesus.
For example, the charge that Jesus of Nazareth practiced enchantment by means of His membrum is not treated in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John: Therein, you will not find any mention of the Pharisees making such a charge at the time of the trial. Perhaps, in the history of Jews and Christians, it would have served better if Jewish leadership had told Christians what they believed to be the truth. Christians may have made adjustments in their doctrines accordingly.
Even in the current climate of enlightenment, Jews seem reluctant to step forward with the information. This author recently conducted a search of the International Council of Christians and Jews website, 13 and a number of other Jewish-Christian cooperative sites, but found no mention of the word "membrum. Let us advance Rabbi Sacks' goal of finding out about each other's faiths. Soncino Press included an index of each tractate as it was published. In , Soncino published a separate volume containing a collated index of the previously published 63 tractates.
Berakoth 7a , page 31; Ta'anit 20a, page 99; Hagigah 15b, page 99; Nazir 23b , page 84; Sotah 9b , page 40; Sotah 10a , page 46; Sotah 11a , page 53; Gittin 57a , page ; Sanhedrin 39a , page ; Sanhedrin 90a , page ; Sanhedrin a , page f; Sanhedrin a , page ff; Abodah Zarah 4a , page 15f; Aboth 5, page 72f; Niddah 31a , page Yoma 66b, page ; Hagigah 4b, page 17; Sotah 47a , page ff; Gittin 57a , page ; Sanhedrin 46a , page ; Sanhedrin 56a , page ; Sanhedrin 61b , page ; Sanhedrin 67a , page ; Sanhedrin a , page ; Sanhedrin b , page ; Sanhedrin b , page f; Abodah Zarah 17a , page 85; Abodah Zarah 27b , page ; Yad Hahazakah page by Moses Maimonides.
Tractate Sanhedrin 67a footnote 5, page contains this interesting footnote by the translator, Rabbi Dr. Apparently then, though the translator and editor believe this passage is a part of the original Tractate Sanhedrin, they have put it into a footnote rather than the main text. Ben Stada occurs again in Tractate Shabbath b. First the mention, which is a discussion of an earlier Mishnah quoted in uppercase :. Footnote 2 refers back to the Sanhedrin passage, above. Again, apparently, the Soncino preserves the earlier censorious action by removing the passage from the main text.
But in the midst of a confusing and obscure debate, the accusation that the subject is Jesus — is muted. Yet, the passages that permit the sacrifice of children to Moloch see Human Sacrifice, the Talmud, and the Moloch Problem , that permit sex with girls as young as three see Sex with Children by Talmud Rules , that provide guidelines for murdering neighbors without liability see The Jewish Religion: Its Influence Today , Chapter 5 , that permit fathers to sell their daughters into slavery see Talmud Daughters Become Talmud Wives — and even the thinly disguised passages wherein Jesus was called Balaam as described in this article — those passages are left intact by the "censors.
The Soncino editor and translator do not state who they consider censored the Ben Stada passages, or why, and the question remains open. Thank you for your consideration of the above, Carol A. One of the speakers, Deborah Lipstadt, a professor of modern Jewish and Holocaust studies at Emory University, broadened the scope of her remarks from the Vatican to comments on the New Testament generally.
Deborah Lipstadt, who is not a Christian, is free to discuss passages in the New Testament that she considers "anti-Judaism. ADL says these Gentiles are using the quotes "to foment anti-Semitism. Americans are used to free give and take. When the ADL closes down open discussion, it creates anti-Semitism. How can that bring about understanding between people of different faiths?
