Evidence from the Jewish Talmud confirms that Jesus was crucified and archeology confirms it

And Paul Bilal Williams took this video down when I posted it on his blog, so this shows that Williams is afraid of intellectual inquiry, historical investigation, and evidence.  He is afraid to face the facts of history that Jesus really was crucified, because that means that the Qur’an is false, logically and automatically.

Addendum:

Archeological evidence for the crucifixion and resurrection and confirming evidence of Caiaphas the high priest and the stone inscription of Pontius Pilate and the actual finding of a crucified man confirms the details of how crucifixion took place described by the gospels and Josephus.

About Ken Temple

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a sinner who has been saved by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9), through faith alone (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:28; 4:1-16), in Christ alone (John 14:6). But a true faith does not stay alone, it should result in change, fruit, good works, and deeper levels of repentance and hatred of my own sins of selfishness and pride. I am not better than you! I still make mistakes and sin, but the Lord is working on me, conforming me to His character. (Romans 8:28-29; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18) When I do sin, I hate the sin as it is an affront to God, and seek His forgiveness in repentance. (Mark 1:15; 2 Corinthians 7:7-10; Colossians 3:5-16 ) Praise God for His love for sinners (Romans 5:8), shown by the voluntary coming of Christ and His freely laying down His life for us (John 10:18), becoming flesh/human (John 1:1-5; 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8), dying for sins of people from all nations, tribes, and cultures (Revelation 5:9), on the cross, in history, rising from the dead (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 28, Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24; John 20-21; 1 Corinthians chapter 15). His resurrection from the dead proved that Jesus is the Messiah, the eternal Son of God, the word of God from eternity past; and that He was all the gospels say He was and that He is truth and the life and the way to salvation. (John 14:6)

  1. Sam Shamoun says:

    Wow! This is coming from a guy who believes the fairy-tales of the Quran! Please be so kind as to point to the archaeological evidence for the claim made by Q. 17:1 that some unnamed servant was transported from Masjid al-Haram to Masjid al-Aqsa, which Islamic tradition identifies as Muhammad being transported from the Kabah to the Temple in Jerusalem.

  2. Sam Shamoun says:

    Moreover, what is the direct archaeological evidence that Jesus spoke as an infant in defense of his mother? (cf. Q. 3:46; 5:110; 19:27-33). And what is the direct archaeological evidence that Jesus’ followers thought that Jesus was neither killed nor crucified, but that it was made to appear as such?

  3. Sam Shamoun says:

    While we are right at, what is the direct archaeological evidence that Ishmael personally settled in Mecca and that he and Abraham built the Kabah together, and smooched a black stone like Muhammad did, and you pagans do till this day?

  4. Ken Temple says:

    Paul Williams –
    Evidence for Jesus Crucifixion –
    All that I have already gave you numerous times over. But you did not let my last 5-6 comments through, on your blog, which proves you are afraid of intellectual historical inquiry and reason and logic.

    What are you afraid of?

    • Sam Shamoun says:

      Williams, then this means that the Talmud confirms that your god is a wicked deceiver who deceived the Jews into thinking they killed someone that they actually didn’t, ALL BECAUSE ALLAH MADE IT SEEM AS IF THEY DID! Way to go in helping us prove that your god is more wicked than the devil since he is a greater deceiver than satan himself! Thanks Williams!

  5. Sam Shamoun says:

    How sad that you choose to brush aside my questions (though predictable of you) and how you refuse to see how my questions are all on topic since it exposes your blatant inconsistency and highlights your unwillingness to subject the Quran to the same standard of hyper-scrutiny and criticism that you demand of the Holy Bible. You are obviously aware that your faith would be destroyed if you did start thinking consistently and critically. I think all the Muslim dollars which you have been receiving for your assault against Christianity has affected your honesty and integrity, which is truly pitiful to say the least.

  6. Ken Temple says:

    Paul Williams – the fact that you would not allow my last 5-6 comments and the video to be presented as evidence PROVES that you the one who is afraid of history, truth, reason, evidence, etc.

    Why are you afraid?

    You are inconsistent.

    Sam’s questions are relevant because you ignore established history and fact and truth and blindly follow a book that came 600 years later with NO historical credibility at all on many things – especially 4:157, the Trinity and the 3 questions of those 3 events that Sam asked you. And the moral problems of aggressive Jihad / Qatal (Surah 9:5; 9:28-29; 8:39) and the moral problem of Muhammad taking Zainab Bint Jahsh away from his adopted son, etc.

  7. Ken Temple says:

    There is no waffle – it is you who waffle and ran away from not letting my 5-6 posts through, which proves you are the one who is afraid of the evidence. I gave you good evidence and you are afraid to let other Muslims see the evidence and think for themselves; that is why you deleted my comments and turned on automatic stopping me from making any comments. The evidence is all there. the article I reposted on the Empty Tomb is also direct archeological evidence. old manuscripts such as P-52 are also direct archeological evidence. So is the Pilate stone and Caiaphas’s bone box – all are there in my answers; but you close your ears and your heart is hardened. You are a sad person to put your faith in something so weak as the Qur’an, which has purpetrated so much injustice and violence and wrongs in history.

    • Ken Temple says:

      P-52 confirms John 18 and the trial and discussion with Pilate; the trial that led to Jesus being crucified; therefore it is evidence consistent with the crucifixion.

      the Pilate stone is direct archeological evidence for Pilate, discovered after liberals for years were doubting even the existance of Pilate. Since Pilate condemned Jesus to be crucified, it is consistent evidence with the crucifixion.

      Same for Caiaphas bone box – confirms details in the gospels; confirms all the gospels as truth.

  8. Ken Temple says:

    See: No one can change the Word of God:
    https://apologeticsandagape.wordpress.com/2014/02/08/no-one-can-change-the-word-of-god/

    and the other article about the Empty Tomb right before it. You have to be open to investigate the evidence. the article and video on the Talmud and the other video about the Pilate Stone and Caiaphas’s bone box and the crucified man they found are all relevant.

    • Ken Temple says:

      No; Paul of Tarsus was a true apostle of Jesus Al Masih and he explained the purposes of the law. He never misquoted the OT.

    • Sam Shamoun says:

      Not as good as Muhammad who perverted the stories of the Torah to his own shame and destruction.

      And thanks again, this for proving that your god is wither a liar or an impotent monad since your claim here proves that Paul was able to do what your own deity said could not be done. Therefore, this either means that Paul is greater than your god (which he is – Bulus Akbar!), and/or that your god straight up lied when he said none can change his words since they certainly can and did. In light of your indirect admission concerning the Talmud proving that your god is a wicked deceiver, you really should have no problem with him lying about this words being incorruptible.

      Again, thank you for helping us prove that your god makes satan look honest and decent.

    • Sam Shamoun says:

      Typo = “And thanks again, this for proving that your god is wither a liar…” should have been “And thanks again for proving that your god is either a liar…”

      And “… lying about this words being incorruptible.” should have been “… lying about his words being incorruptible.”

  9. Derek Adams says:

    lol I see PW evades questions on every blog, not just his own.

    “And what is the direct archaeological evidence that Jesus’ followers thought that Jesus was neither killed nor crucified, but that it was made to appear as such?”

    Excellent question Sam.

    • Sam Shamoun says:

      Williams is just ducking tail since he knows better than to answer these questions since this would force him to condemn Muhammad as a fraud and imposter (which he certainly was). Therefore, he would rather pretend that these questions in order to avoid admitting that his own god and messenger cannot pass his very own criteria for historicity and reliability. This trick is as old as the Quran itself, which is nothing but a book of tricks and deceit.

    • Sam Shamoun says:

      Typo= “Therefore, he would rather pretend that these questions…” should have been “Therefore, he would rather pretend that these questions are irrelevant…”

  10. Derek Adams says:

    BTW, thanks Ken. Excellent videos

    • Ken Temple says:

      the videos prove the Qur’an is wrong.

    • Sam Shamoun says:

      Yes they do since they confirm that the Quran is right in labeling Allah is the most wicked of all deceivers, even more so than satan himself. The video proves that Allah’s deception and tricks even make satan blush.

    • Nakdimon says:

      Paul Williams, actually the only thing that appeared to be so was Muhammad’s prophet hood. You thought he was a prophet? In reality it appeared so to you. He really wasn’t!

      I can’t believe Muslims don’t see the weakness of the Quranic argument. It’s basically like saying “who are you going to believe, me or you lying eyes?”. If you accept this from the Quran you may well accept it for any position!

    • Sam Shamoun says:

      Typo = “… in labeling Allah is the most wicked of all deceivers…” should have been “… in labeling Allah as the most wicked of all deceivers…”

    • Nakdimon says:

      Pauil Williams,

      I have asked you a question and you haven’t answered: What would you accept as “direct evidence” that Jesus was crucified? Please answer the question so we can move on.

    • Nakdimon says:

      Paul Williams, there are several evidences. I want to know what you would regard as “direct evidence” that Jesus was crucified? What would you regard as such? What is “beyond reasonable doubt”?

    • Nakdimon says:

      PW, do you want an answer or do you want to play catch me oif you can? I’m asking you, what would you regard as “direct atcheological evidence” of Jesus’ crucifixion? It seems to me that no matter what we bring to the table, your answer will be “Allah made it appear”. This is a “refutation” to ANY possible piece of evidence, because no matter what the evidence clearly says, “its not as it seems” will be the counter argument.

      So answer the question, please.What piece of evidence can falsify the “Allah made it appear” argument of the Quran?

    • Nakdimon says:

      So PW doesnt want to answer a basic question to refute a nonsensical claim of the Quran. The claim of the Quran “Who will you believe, me of your lying eyes?” cannot be falsified, since every argument will “confirm” the “Allah made it appear so” claim of the Quran. Funny how Muslims will deny the crucifixion based on a supposed “lack of archeological evidence” yet they have no problem to accept the Virgin Birth which is historically significantly less attested to than the crucifixion.

      So you have to already be a Muslim to reject the crucifixion based on a supposed lack of evidence, yet at the same time accept the significantly less historically evidence-based Virgin Birth of Jesus. What a wonderful delusional world the realm of Islam is.

    • Nakdimon says:

      Seldom have I seen such cowardice in an apologist of ANY position. Simply refusing to answer simple questions to avoid to be pinned down and falsified only to be able to keep up the facade that is Islam. You, Paul, are truly pathetic. If you are not willing to answer an honest and simple question, then please just admit you can’t hang, disappear and stay away!

    • Nakdimon says:

      Which proves my point! You cannot falsify the Quranic claim of “it appeared” because any evidence would be nullified as “it appeared”. ANY evidence, no matter what. Which is why I asked you the question, which you demonstrated it cannot be answered honestly. Hence you refuse to answer it. It is UNFALSIFIABLE BECAUSE you can use it for ANYTHING! I can do it too:

      What is the evidence that Muhammad is a prophet?
      It is miraculous you say? – It only appears to you!
      His perfect conduct you say? – It only appears to you!
      No one can produce anything like the Quran you say? – It only appears to you!
      The Quran is elloquent beyond anything ever produced? – It only appears to you!
      etc, etc, etc.

      So again, it’s obvious why you don’t want to answer the question: therefore just disappear and stay gone!

    • Sam Shamoun says:

      BTW Nakdimon, Williams is lying through his teeth in perfect imitation of his prophet when he says that John Hick is “widely regarded as one of the most eminent Christian philosopher’s of religion of the 20th century” since Hick wasn’t a Christian. He himself admitted that at one time he became an Evangelical Christian but eventually lost his faith. Hicks became for all intents and purposes a Hindu in his worldview. You see just how slimey and repulsive this guy is? Williams thinks he can get away with his lies without anyone calling him out on it, just like his prophet did. The difference is that his prophet murdered anyone who did expose him for the charlatan that he was, something Williams can’t do for now until his Islamic caliphate is restored which will never happen by the grace of the Lord Jesus, Muhammad’s Judge and Lord.

    • Nakdimon says:

      Sam, I didn’t even look into it, but given the history of Islamic distortions, why doesn’t it surprose me…

  11. Ken Temple says:

    You are welcome, Derek. Thanks for stopping by here and commenting.

  12. Isah says:

    What is the direct archeological evidence of the person that was crucified instead of Jesus (at least, so says the quran).

  13. Isah says:

    [To Paul Bilal Williams] – Don’t know much of you, but from the little i’ve read from your posts, you sound consciously ignorant.

  14. Ken Temple says:

    interestingly the Talmud video above confirms exactly what God tells us in the Holy Quran: that it appeared that Jesus had been crucified! Thanks Ken

    It cannot confirm the Qur’an, since the Jews admitted they executed Jesus, really executed Him. there is no so called “appearance” about it. Jesus death was real and in time and space and history.

  15. Sam Shamoun says:

    Cut the waffle Williams, and answer the following questions:

    Please be so kind as to point to the archaeological evidence for the claim made by Q. 17:1 that some unnamed servant was transported from Masjid al-Haram to Masjid al-Aqsa, which Islamic tradition identifies as Muhammad being transported from the Kabah to the Temple in Jerusalem.

    Moreover, what is the direct archaeological evidence that Jesus spoke as an infant in defense of his mother? (cf. Q. 3:46; 5:110; 19:27-33). And what is the direct archaeological evidence that Jesus’ followers thought that Jesus was neither killed nor crucified, but that it was made to appear as such?

    While we are right at, what is the direct archaeological evidence that Ishmael personally settled in Mecca and that he and Abraham built the Kabah together, and smooched a black stone like Muhammad did, and you pagans do till this day?

    You have been running with your tail between your legs, instead of answering my questions directly. Unlike you, I know why.

  16. tsegaye says:

    what William! that means if this evidences true that make Quran asthmatically false document and Make Allah big lair. not good for 1.7 billion Muslims

  17. Ken Temple says:

    Paul Williams – we offered tons of proof and you deleted 5-6 of my posts with lots of evidence, so that is why I have deleted your last comment. (which is nothing but you repeating yourself). You are unjust in your methods; and you violate the Qur’an in 29:46 “argue in a good way”. You are not a good Muslim because you don’t obey Surah 29:46. You are afraid of the historical legal evidences and intellectual inquiry and could not handle the evidence being shown at your web-site.

  18. Ken Temple says:

    Nakdimon – that is a very, very good question to Paul Williams:

    So answer the question, please. What piece of evidence can falsify the “Allah made it appear” argument of the Quran?

    exactly!

  19. Ken Temple says:

    Paul Williams –
    Nakdimon has skewered your arguments and fried you to a crisp and nuked you!

    worth repeating –

    Which proves my point! You cannot falsify the Quranic claim of “it appeared” because any evidence would be nullified as “it appeared”. ANY evidence, no matter what. Which is why I asked you the question, which you demonstrated it cannot be answered honestly. Hence you refuse to answer it. It is UNFALSIFIABLE BECAUSE you can use it for ANYTHING! I can do it too:

    What is the evidence that Muhammad is a prophet?
    It is miraculous you say? – It only appears to you!
    His perfect conduct you say? – It only appears to you!

    No one can produce anything like the Quran you say? – It only appears to you!
    The Quran is elloquent beyond anything ever produced? – It only appears to you!
    etc, etc, etc.

    This is probably why so many Muslims respond in arguments, when the evidence is against them: LA ! لا – NO! It is a trick! It only appeared that way! etc. This kind of argument from the Qur’an seems to permeate Islamic culture.

    • Ken Temple says:

      Paul Williams wrote: “exactly – that is why you will always fail to refute the Quran – it is just not possible. QED.”

      That is exactly why a thinking person would reject it – and what leads thinking people to see that the Qur’an is false; because it is set up to just say ” I am always right no matter what evidence is brought to me”; and “No evidence is any evidence” and some Muslims have the attidue of: “and I will destroy you and force you (which is what Islam does to others when it gets the political and military power to do so – for example, the unjust attacks and wars against the Byzantine Empire and Persian Empire for the first centuries of Islam) – the attitude seems like : “and if you criticize me I will hurt you or kill you and you make me angry and if you make me angry I will kill you” – does this attidue come from the idea of the Al Jabbar – الجبار the enforcer; the forceful one – from jabr جبر – root is force – Islam, Sharia law, Qatal/Harb/Jihad and its unjustly waring against the Byzantine and Persian Empires – (Surah 9:5; 9:28-29; 8:39; many AHadith) it is mostly force; the Allah of Islam seems like an ugly prideful, petty dictator who just forces and gets angry if its feelings get hurt. There is even a Hadith that has Muhammad saying, “Who will kill that guy that hurt me and hurt Allah?” The Al Motakabir – المتکبر = The Prideful One. (The Enforcer/compeller by force and the Prideful one is in Surah 59:23) That seems to be the root and heart of Islam – forcing everyone else. It is ugly; and I don’t see how any intelligent person would be attracted to it’s doctrines and practices. The Al Motakabir – the Proud one. المتکبر – Yuk! Maybe that is one reason why a lot of areas of the Islamic world has had many ugly prideful polticial dictators who unjustly and cruely oppress the people.

      What does “QED” mean?

    • Nakdimon says:

      Paul Williams,I think you have completely misunderstood my point. Never did I for a moment suggested that the Quranic argument was at all valid. On the contrary, my point was that the argument was invalid because anyone can make that argument as an objection to anything. It is irrefutable because it’s stupid!

      Case in point: why dont you try to prove Islam is the truth or that Muhammad is a prophet and I’ll refute every single one of your claims with the same “irrefutable” argument you deemed a valid defense for your own position. B-)

  20. Masoud Christian says:

    The author of the Qur’an did not have courage to deny the historical reality of the crucifixion. This is why he had to take Yeshua off the cross in his fantasies instead of removing the cross from Yeshua’s life altogether. In order to take Yeshua off the cross, he had to rely on the notion of appearance, which aims to cast doubt upon anything related to this subject, including the very claim introduced in the Qur’an!

  21. Ken Temple says:

    Paul Williams – I pity you and pray for you. You are a fundamentalist Muslim – on this issue and some others, you put revelation before thinking and reason – to say “no matter what evidence is brought, all evidence is only “it only appears that way” is nutty – to think that even by historical evidence, you can never falsify the Qur’an 4:157 claim (and other claims – like Abraham and Ismael building the Kaaba, Muhammad flying in the night journey to Jerusalem and then up to heaven, etc. To have the attitude that no historical evidence is good enough to refute Surah 4:157 is the ultimate expression of Fundamentalist non-critical thought. You boast of your scholarly and intellectual prowess, but you are quite arrogant in your attitude of superiority in all the liberal scholars that you have read (vs. conservative, believing Christian scholars), and you are a non-thinking Fundamentalist Muslim when it comes to other things, like Surah 4:157 and other issues. You think you are using the intellectual best scholarship of the west against Christianity, but you don’t see the same principle can be used against consistent Islam – the very scholarship you rely so much – their worldview paradigm, would refute consistent Islam also.

    • Nakdimon says:

      Ken, Paul Williams thinks he is making valid arguments but it only appears so to him. Not only that, he thinks he is online now but it only appears to him he is online.

      This argument from the Quran is like the Matrix: nothing is as it seems.

      • Ken Temple says:

        Exactly. that seems to be why so many (not all) Muslims deny reality and have so many conspiracy theories. It truly seems that way.

      • Ken Temple says:

        “Not only that, he thinks he is online now but it only appears to him he is online.
        This argument from the Quran is like the Matrix: nothing is as it seems.”

        LOL. Exposes the absurdity of Paul Williams’ argument.

  22. Ken Temple says:

    On the contrary, my point was that the argument [Paul Williams’ argument above about Surah 4:157] was invalid because anyone can make that argument as an objection to anything. It is irrefutable because it’s stupid!

    Exactly! It is a Fundamentalist non-thinking stupid argument that invalidates itself by nature.

  23. Ken Temple says:

    Q.E.D. Latin – standing for – quod erat demonstrandum, meaning “which had to be demonstrated”. Usually put on the end of a mathematical or philosophical argument –

    But you have yet to demonstrate anything, except that Islam is mainly about forcing others to submit. It is blind fundamentalism.

  24. Ken Temple says:

    Paul Williams –
    “Fundamentalism is the belief that revelation forces us to be stupid.” Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad

    You even have a blog post of this quote at your blog. That is what Surah 4:157 does on the issue of Jesus Al Masih being crucified and put to the death on the cross. It forces you to come to a very non-thinking position.

    And I wonder about that basic principle, because it seems to extend to many other areas in some Muslim’s thinking.

  25. Ken Temple says:

    Hadith, book 59 – Military Expeditions Led by the Prophet Muhammad.


    Sahih Al Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 59, Number 369: , Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah: Allah’s Apostle said; 
Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:
Allah’s Apostle said, “Who is willing to kill Ka’b bin Al-Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His Apostle?” Thereupon Muhammad bin Maslama got up saying, “O Allah’s Apostle! Would you like that I kill him?” The Prophet said, “Yes,” Muhammad bin Maslama said, “Then allow me to say a (false) thing (i.e. to deceive Kab). “The Prophet said, “You may say it.” . .
    .

    How can puny humans “hurt” Allah? Doesn’t seem like the true God, since God cannot be hurt or disappointed and He has need of nothing.
