First off, the Babylonian Talmud is a Jewish text that dates from about 1300 BC to 200 AD, varying in location and author. It is different from the Tiberius Talmud (also known as the Jerusalem Talmud).
I’ve researched the Babylonian Talmud, but the thing that hit me the wrong way was some suggestion to the position of Jesus in the Talmud – that there are references to him in unholy positions, etc. But, some argue that this is supposedly referring to a man named “Yeshu,” who lived around the same time period as Jesus.
Obviously, those are heretical and unjustified views. So: is the Talmud “safe” to study? Or is it a heretical book?
