Who was this Yoshke, the Christian believe in ?
The Ravad ( 1st) in his Sefer Hakabala writes the Christians
mistakenly claim that the Oso Ha’ish lived in the times of
Hordos and his son Arkiles. Our Mesorah (Sotah 47a) tells
us , he was a Talmid of R, Yehoshua ben Prachya,who lived
in the times of Yanai Hamelech. This would be 110 years
before their claim.
The Tosfos Harosh* (Sotah 47a) writes there are two
different Mashichei Sheker mentioned in the Gomoro.
The one in Meseches Sotah is not the Yeisho Hanotzri,
mentioned in M. Sanhedrin77a. The Christians believe
in the Yeisho in M. Sanhedrin . He lived 70 years before
the Churban. He was hung on Erev Pesach, but he was
not a Talmid of R.Y.b Prachya,who lived 180 years before
The Me’iri ( Sotah 47 & Pesicha to Ms Avos) claims the
one that the Christians believe in is not mentioned at all
in the Gemoro. Yeisho and Ben Stadah are not the
Yoshke the Christian believe in.
There are numerous intellectuals (lehavdil) who claim,
the Christian Yoshke is a myth and complete fabrication.
There never existed .such a person at all.
(never mind the so called miracles)
