Execution of Yeshu ha Notzri on the Eve of Passover - Talmud, Sanhedrin 43a
Some people believe that this story was invented many years after the 1st century, however, there are many sources outside of the Bible that describe the life and death of Jesus Christ who in the Jewish Tradition is called Yeshu ha Notzri which means "Jesus the Nazarene"
Notzri or Netzer means "Branch" ... and signifies that Jesus was from the Branch of David, the stem of Jesse. Nazarene does not mean that he was from Nazareth, it means that he was from the Royal line (Branch) of King David
He was in fact a Jewish Prince. (nasi) נְשִׂיא
Talmud Sanhedrin 43a
" It is taught: On the eve of Passover they hung Yeshu and the crier went forth for forty days beforehand declaring that "Yeshu is going to be stoned for practicing witchcraft, for enticing and leading Israel astray. Anyone who knows something to clear him should come forth and exonerate him." But no one had anything exonerating for him and they hung him on the eve of Passover. Ulla said: Would one think that we should look for exonerating evidence for him? He was an enticer and G-d said (Deuteronomy 13:9) "Show him no pity or compassion, and do not shield him." Yeshu was different because he was close to the government. [Royal Family] "
Yeshu ha Notzri : The references to Notzrim in the Babylonian Talmud are related to the meaning and person of Yeshu Ha Notzri ("Jesus the Nazarene") in the Talmud and Tosefta. This includes passages in the Babylonian Talmud such as Sanhedrin 107b which states "Jesus the Nazarene practiced magic and led Israel astray" The Jerusalem Talmud contains other coded references to Jesus such as "Jesus ben Pantera," (Pandera means Betrayer*) while the references using the term notzri are restricted to the Babylon Talmud. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazarene_%28title%29
Notzri" (נוצרי) from the Hebrew NTzR = Branch Ne·tzer
ne·tser (נֵ֫צֶר, n-ts-r), pronounced nay'·tser, meaning "branch", "flower", or "offshoot". Derived from na·tsar. Jerome (c. 347 – 420) linked "Nazarene" to a verse in the Book of Isaiah, claiming that "Nazarene" was the Hebrew reading of a word scholars read as ne·tzer (branch).The text from Isaiah is: There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
ve·ya·tza cho·ter mig·ge·za yi·shai ve·ne·tzer mi·sha·ra·shav yif·reh.
In ancient Hebrew texts, vowels were not indicated, so a wider variety of readings was possible in Jerome's time. Here branch/Nazarene is metaphorically "descendant" (of Jesse, father of King David). Eusebius, a 4th-century Christian polemicist, also argued that Isaiah was the source of "Nazarene." This prophecy by Isaiah was extremely popular in New Testament times and is also referred to in Romans and Revelation
Nasi (prince) - נְשִׂיא The noun nasi occurs 132 times in the Masoretic Text of the Hebrew Bible, and in English is usually translated "prince," occasionally "captain." The first use is for the twelve "princes" who will descend from Ishmael, in Genesis 17, and the second use, in Genesis 23, is the Hethites recognising Abraham as "a godly prince" (nasi elohim נְשִׂיא אֱלֹהִים ). In the book of Leviticus, in the rites of sacrifices for leaders who err, there is the special offering made by a "nasi".
The Talmudic book of Horayot actually defines this to mean the king.

*Pandera : Robert Eisler considered the name to be derived from Pandaros. He also argued that it may not have been a real name but instead as a generic name for a betrayer. He notes that in the Iliad, Pandaros betrays the Greeks and breaks a truce confirmed by solemn oath. He argues that the name came to be used as a generic term for a betrayer and was borrowed by Hebrew. The name is indeed found in Genesis Rabba 50 in the expression qol Pandar (literally "voice of Pandaros" denoting false promises of a betrayer) used as a derogatory placeholder name for a judge of Sodom. The -a at the end of the form Pandera can be understood to be the Aramaic definite article.
Note : the photo above is a technology process of the actual photo of the Holy Shroud of Turin (The burial cloth of Jesus). The shroud, which story is by the way fascinating and interesting, bears the imprint of the body of a man showing evident signs of death by crucifixion and is been scientifically dated to 2000 years.

Note: The Talmud Sanhedrin 43a, states that Yeshu ha Notzri was both stoned and hung from a Tree. Do the Gospel accounts or any other non-Biblical accounts indicate in any way that jesus was Stoned and then hung on a Tree?
