Surely, for non-Christians, Jesus' suffering is seen as a rather distasteful exercise in futility? The crucifixion is regarded by many as ugly and barbaric, all the moreso because it could have been avoided ... He died because, they hold, because He was deluded, and His death achieves nothing.
Thomas, as someone born and raised Jewish, I did not learn this and never thought of Jesus' suffering in this way. Where did you get this notion ?
Probably you are aware that in formal Jewish education, Jesus is not a topic of study. Only Jews who are willing to read outside of their tradition can form ideas and opinions about Jesus and other Christian ideas.
