Corroboration from
Jewish Sources
On the eve of Passover Yeshua was hanged.  For forty days before the execution a herald went forth and cried, “He is going to be stoned because he has practiced sorcery and enticed Israel to apostasy.  Anyone who can say anything in his favor, let him come forward and plead on his behalf.”  But since nothing was brought forward in his favor he was hanged on the eve of Passover.Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 43a
