Welcome to our website

Israel, Did She Kill Jesus?

As I have stated before, I am NOT anti-Semitic in any way. I love the Jews. I simply teach the Bible, the Holy and inspired Word of God. God loves the Jews, and we too must love the Jews.

Israel (the Jews), were throughout much of the Old Testament, a stiff-necked people who rebelled time and time again against God. But, my friend, please do not judge them, for they are accountable to God and God alone, the same as you and me. You and I too have rebelled against God. And you and I shall be held accountable to God alone, the same as the Jews.

For some examples of Israel's rebellion, see: Israel's Ten Failures

When Israel went into captivity to the stronger nations, it was for their idolatry, disobedience and out and out rebellion. Their captivities were judgments from a God who loved them and insisted on their obedience.

Idolatry and moral corruption is what divided Judah and Israel. Their acceptance of other gods, broke their covenant with God.

Jeremiah 3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also. [KJV]

Isaiah 50:1 Thus saith the Lord, Where is the bill of your mother's divorcement, whom I have put away? or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold yourselves, and for your transgressions is your mother put away. [KJV]

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. [KJV]

Hosea 4:6 My people are being destroyed because they don't know me. It is all your fault, you priests, for you yourselves refuse to know me. Now I refuse to recognize you as my priests. Since you have forgotten the laws of your God, I will forget to bless your children. [KJV]

Israel was destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because she rejected knowledge, God rejected her. Since they forgot God's laws, God would forget their children. What a sad statement! May we learn from their mistakes.

The Jews, in general, rejected Jesus as their Messaih and Saviour. And YES! Many times, they DID plot to kill Jesus.

I will let the Bible speak.

John 1:31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. [KJV]

John 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. [KJV]

John 5:18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. [KJV]

John 7:1 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. [KJV]

John 7:19 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me? [KJV]

John 8:37-44 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. [38] I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. [39] They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham. [40] But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. [41] Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. [42] Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. [43] Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. [44] Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. [KJV]

John 11:45-53 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him. [46] But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done. [47] Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles. [48] If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation. [49] And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, [50] Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. [51] And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; [52] And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. [53] Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death. [KJV]

Matthew 12:13-14 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other. [14] Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him. [KJV]

Matthew 26:1-3 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples, [2] Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified. [3] Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, [KJV]

Luke 22:2 And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people. [KJV]

Mark 11:17-18 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. [18] And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.

Mark 14:1 After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death. [KJV]

Mark 14:55 And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none. [KJV]

John 8:57-59 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? [58] Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. [59] Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by. [KJV]

John 10:31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. [KJV]

John 10:39 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand, [KJV]

The Jews Did Kill Jesus

Mark 15:10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy. [KJV]

Mark 15:15 And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified. [KJV]

Acts 2:22-23 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: [23] Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: [KJV]

Acts 3:12-15 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? [13] The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go. [14] But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; [15] And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses. [KJV]

Acts 5:27-30 And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them, [28] Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us. [29] Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. [30] The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. [KJV]

1 Thes. 2:14-15 For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: [15] Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: [KJV]

Acts 7:52-53 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers: [53] Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it. [KJV]

Persecution of Christians in Early Church

The Jews persecuted and killed our Lord and Saviour, Jesus the Christ (Messiah). But, the Bible clearly stated Jesus had to die. See: Messianic Prophecies under topic 'End Times Prophecy' in www.lastdaysprophecy.org

But, the Jews also persecuted the early church too.

Acts 4:1-18 And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them, [2] Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead. [3] And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide. [4] Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.
[5] And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes, [6] And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem. [7] And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have ye done this? [8] Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, [9] If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole; [10] Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. [11] This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. [12] Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. [13] Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. [14] And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. [15] But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, [16] Saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it. [17] But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name. [18] And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus
. [KJV] The apostles were forbidden to speak or teach of Jesus.

Acts 5:17-18 Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation, [18] And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison. [KJV]

Acts 5:40 And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. [KJV]

Acts 7:30-58 And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush. [31] When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord came unto him, [32] Saying, I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold. [33] Then said the Lord to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground. [34] I have seen, I have seen the affliction of my people which is in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send thee into Egypt. [35] This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush. [36] He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.
[37] This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear. [38] This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us: [39] To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt, [40] Saying unto Aaron, Make us gods to go before us: for as for this Moses, which brought us out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. [41] And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands. [42] Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness? [43] Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon. [44] Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, as he had appointed, speaking unto Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen. [45] Which also our fathers that came after brought in with Jesus into the possession of the Gentiles, whom God drave out before the face of our fathers, unto the days of David; [46] Who found favour before God, and desired to find a tabernacle for the God of Jacob. [47] But Solomon built him an house. [48] Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, [49] Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest? [50] Hath not my hand made all these things?

[51] Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. [52] Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers: [53] Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it.
[54] When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. [55] But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, [56] And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. [57] Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, [58] And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul
. [KJV]

Here Stephen honors Moses in his speech just before the Jews stoned him to death. Israel would have cast Moses far away from them and returned to slavery in Egypt if they had their way.

When the the voice of the Lord called out to Moses, I am the God of your ancestors . . . the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Moses shook with terror and dared not look. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were dead, yet God is still their God . . . so, that means they are still alive. This is the life and immortality revealed to us in the Gospel!

Stephen preached on Jesus, but the Jews refuses to listen, being more angered with every word that Stephen spoke. He accused them of killing Jesus in verse 52. That was the last straw. The Jewish leaders were infuriated by Stephen's accusation. But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed steadily upward into heaven and saw the glory of God, and he said he saw Jesus standing in the place of honor at God's right hand. When Stephen said that, they put their hands over their ears to drown out his voice, and killed him.

The majority of people in the world today (Jews and Gentiles) refuse to accept and obey Jesus (Messiah), because they love this present evil world and they rejoice in their own works, pleasure and plans for wickedness.

Acts 8:1 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. [KJV]

This was before Saul's (Paul) conversion.

Acts 8:3 As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison. [KJV]

The devil is very strong. Saul (Paul) really thought he was doing right until he met Jesus on the road to Damascus.

Acts 21:27-32 And when the seven days were almost ended, the Jews which were of Asia, when they saw him in the temple, stirred up all the people, and laid hands on him, [28] Crying out, Men of Israel, help: This is the man, that teacheth all men every where against the people, and the law, and this place: and further brought Greeks also into the temple, and hath polluted this holy place. [29] (For they had seen before with him in the city Trophimus an Ephesians, whom they supposed that Paul had brought into the temple.) [30] And all the city was moved, and the people ran together: and they took Paul, and drew him out of the temple: and forthwith the doors were shut. [31] And as they went about to kill him, tidings came unto the chief captain of the band, that all Jerusalem was in an uproar. [32] Who immediately took soldiers and centurions, and ran down unto them: and when they saw the chief captain and the soldiers, they left beating of Paul. [KJV]

After Paul's conversion, he too was persecuted by the Jews.

Acts 23:12 And when it was day, certain of the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul. [KJV]

The Jews conspired to kill Paul, vowing they would not eat or drink until they had killed Paul.

2 Cor. 11:24 Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. [KJV]

Not once, not twice, but five times the Jews beat Paul with 39 lashes.

There is no doubt in my mind that the Jews would persecute believers today if we would try to tell them about the Christ (Messiah), our Lord and Saviour, and only way to God the Father (John 14:6; Acts 4:12).

Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. [KJV]

Do we as His disciples obey our Lord's commands? Are we really His true disciples? I fall short, how about you?

Christ Jesus (Messiah) pronounced judgment on the Jews for rejecting Him.

Matthew 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. [KJV] Very strong language!

Jesus called the Jews "hypocrites."

Matthew 23:13-15 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. [14] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation. [15] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. [KJV]

Matthew 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. [KJV]

Matthew 23:27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. [KJV]

Matthew 23:29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, [KJV]

Jesus called the Jews "blind."

Matthew 23:16-17 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! [17] Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? [KJV]

Matthew 23:19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? [KJV]

Matthew 23:24-26 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. [25] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. [26] Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. [KJV]

Jesus called the Jews "white-washed tombstones."

Matthew 23:27-31 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. [28] Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. [29] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, [30] And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. [31] Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. [KJV]

Jesus called the Jews "a brood of vipers."

Matthew 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. [KJV]

Matthew 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? [KJV]

God in His mercy sent His only begotten Son to save us from sin and its consequences. And the Jews were too blind and stubborn to SEE their Messiah!

John 1:1-13 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [2] The same was in the beginning with God. [3] All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. [4] In him was life; and the life was the light of men. [5] And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. [KJV] Jesus is the Word. Jesus is the Messiah!

John 1:10-11 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. [11] He came unto his own, and his own received him not. [KJV] This is an extremely sad Passage! Jesus was a Jew, but they could not see Him and they wouldn't accept Him. They (the Jews) received Him not!

Even though the Old testament clearly shows when, where and how He would come, the vast majority of Jews rejected Him, and still do.

Yet, God in His wisdom, ordained Jesus to be Saviour of the world. He is the ONLY Way to God the Father, Who is in Heaven.

John 1:12-13 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: [13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. [KJV]

1 John 5:10-12 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. [11] And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. [12] He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. [KJV]

There is ONLY one TRUE God in the Universe. That God is the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. And that God is the same God of the Jews and the Gentiles. There is NOT a God of the Jews and another god for the Gentiles. The Bible makes this very clear!

And this one Almighty Creator God has made only ONE Way to reach Him in His Home (Heaven), and that Way is Jesus (the Messiah).

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. [KJV]

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. [KJV]

John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. [KJV]

More than the Jews were responsible for the death of Jesus.

Did Israel Kill Jesus?
WHO Killed Jesus?

Several individuals, or groups of people, were responsible for the death of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary

#1. The leaders and people of Israel.
The leaders and people of Israel. The Gospel accounts, written by Jews, make this declaration:
Matthew 27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children. (KJV)

The apostle Peter, a Jew, accused his own people, as a nation, of condemning Jesus to death.
Acts 2:22-23 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: 23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: (KJV)  . . . The Jews, with the help of wicked men, condemned the Lord Jesus to death by crucifixion.
Acts 4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. (KJV)

The Holy Bible clearly states that the Jews condemned the Lord Jesus to death.
Mark 15:13 And they cried out again, Crucify him. 14  Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him. (KJV)
Luke 23:21 But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. (KJV)
John 19:6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him. (KJV)
John 19:15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. (KJV)

#2. Pontius Pilate
The next, clearly, was Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor of Israel who sentenced Jesus to death, even though he knew that the evidence against Him was false.
Luke 23:4 Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man. (KJV)
Luke 23:13-15 And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 14 Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him: 15  No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him. (KJV)
Luke 23:22-23 And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go. 23 And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed. (KJV)

Pontius Pilate openly stated to the chief priests and the crowd, I have found no cause of death in him.”
Yet he was the one to order the crucifixion.
John 19:6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him. (KJV)
John 19:16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away. (KJV)

#3. Roman Soldiers
The Romans were the ones who actually crucified the Lord Jesus.

Matthew 27:27-37 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers. 28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe. 29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! 30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head. 31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him. 32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross. 33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull, 34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink. 35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots. 36 And sitting down they watched him there; 37 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS. (KJV)

Crucifixion was a Roman way of execution, authorized and carried out by the Romans under the authority of Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor who sentenced Jesus. Roman soldiers drove the nails into Jesus’ Hands and Feet. The soldiers they erected the cross and a Roman solider pierced His side.
John 19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. (KJV)

#4. God the Father
The Bible tells us that it was also the will of God the Father that Jesus pay the price for the sin of the world.
Act 2:23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: (KJV)
Act 3:18 But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled. (KJV)
Act 4:28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done. (KJV)
The Lord Jesus did NOT suffer by chance, but by the wise and holy providence of God, who had ordered, and by His prophets foretold, what He should suffer before He would enter into glory (Lk.24:26. Yet this did not excuse those who were instrumental in Jesus’ death; for although God's determinate counsel concerned it, He
tells the Jews, “ye have taken”. The determination of God does not dictate to, so it does not excuse any from sin.

#5. Jesus Himself
The Bible also makes it very clear that Jesus was NOT a helpless “victim”. He willingly laid down His life for us.
John 10:14-18 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. 15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. 17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. 18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father. (KJV)
Since Jesus was/is God, NO man could take His life if He did not want it that way. It was indeed taken away, starting with the Jews hatred of Him, and by the order of Pilate, and carried out by the Roman soldiers, who crucified Him. The Lord Jesus willingly died for us on that horrendous cross, for ALL His children!  His children are those who believe God (1 Jn.5:10-13), and accept Him as their Saviour and Lord (Jn.3:15-18, 36).

#6. My sin and the sin of the whole world crucified Jesus
It is important to make this clear. I crucified Jesus, and so did you! It was OUR sin that put Jesus on the horrendous cross. We are guilty, and Jesus payed the price for our sin.
Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: (KJV)
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (KJV)
1 John 1:8-10 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (KJV)

A very sad fact of church history is that the Jews have been accused of killing Jesus . . . yes, they were guilty, but no more than anyone today. Shocking persecutions have fallen on Israel because hyper-religious Christians have said that the Jews are guilty of ‘killing God’. But anyone who makes this accusation, fails to recognize their own responsibility. I truly believe that IF the Lord Jesus were put on trial today, the same verdict would be heard . . . Crucify Him, crucify Him. And it would not only be the Jews, but the Gentiles as well.

Jesus died on the cross. His death was a sacrifice for the sin of the world. The wonderful part of the story is that death could not hold Him down. He rose from the grave. And, praise God, there is forgiveness of sin, for Jews and Gentiles, for everyone who turns to Him and who believes in Him and who calls on His Name.

Are the Jews cursed because they killed Christ and asked for 'His Blood to be on us,' according to Matthew 27:25?

Some people believe that the Jews are cursed because they killed the Son of God. This is sometimes used to justify hatred of Jews (anti-Semitism), which is WRONG. This is not Biblical! The Jews’ rejection of their Messiah did have its consequences, but the Bible NEVER speaks of a continuing curse upon God’s chosen people.

The Jewish nation did indeed suffer for their rejection of their Messiah. Within one generation of the crucifixion of Christ, Jerusalem was totally destroyed by the Romans. The Jews were scattered, and for almost 1,900 years (until 1948), they had no homeland. There were spiritual results, as well, as the Gospel was brought to the more receptive Gentiles (Acts 18:6). The apostle Paul likens the Gentiles’ inclusion in salvation to wild branches being grafted into a cultivated olive tree. The Jews (the natural branches) are not completely forsaken:
Romans 11:23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. (KJV)
But they are NOT cursed by God. Paul asks the question:
Romans 11:1-2 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying, (KJV)

Dear one, there is coming a time when “all Israel will be saved”.
Romans 11:26-28 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: 27  For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. 28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes. (KJV)

How can the Jews be “cursed” when God had made an unconditional covenant with Abraham?
Genesis 12:2-3  And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (KJV)

God also promised the Jews a large extent of land in Genesis 15. Israel has never had full possession of the land God promised, so the prophecy still awaits fulfillment during the Millennial Kingdom.
Dear one, people reap what they sow. Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (KJV)  . . . Disobedience always brings sorrow.

When the people of Israel fell into gross, unrepentant idolatry, they lost their land for the 70 years of the Babylon exile (Jer.29:10). When they rejected their Messiah, they lost their land for even longer.
John 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. (KJV)

God’s Promise still stands. He does NOT lie!
Isaiah 62:11-12 Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. 12 And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken. (KJV)
