I guess from the perspective of someone who wants all the jews to convert to Christianity then the Talmud is heresy.
I guess from the perspective of someone who doesn't think converting to Christianity is what jews should be doing then it is the New Testament which is heresy.
I don't really care, so I am not taking a side, but it is an interesting question.
That's not how I view it, Gentile Christianity is not the only form of Christianity. Personally I believe the Messianic Jews are basically Christian Jews though for obvious political reasons do not take the label of "Christian"(despite believing in the basic tenants of Christianity). I do not think the Jews need to convert to the Gentile form of Christianity and profess "We love Jesus Christ" but to perhaps grow to accept the possibility Yeshua Hamashiach may be the only notable candidate for The Messiah they will ever get to have, and the only very very very good candidate that God will ever have provided for them.
The Talmud is not the holy scriptures even for Judaism, as that is the Tanakh(and within that The Torah). It is mainly simply a Jewish Rabbonical Catechism written by people with an agenda to downplay any and all prophecy interpretations concerning Yeshua. In fact they outwardly write evidentiary lies/gossip in the Telmud, such as calling Yeshua "Yeshu(removing the important "a")" and saying other non-Christian heresies like that crap Islam also repeats about the Virgin Mary.
I don't think the Telmud should have such a high level of importance in Judaism, and I'm glad it has appeared to lose some importance over the recent years. Certainly the Messianic Jews and the Jewish Rabbi's who think "Jesus/Yeshua may not have the Messiah, but he was kinda cool anyway" have seemed to have moved on from thinking of it as the be all and end all.
