The Fool said:My reading was always actually that it was not the Jews per se who were held responsible for the death of Jesus, as much as mob mentality itself.
However, remaining with the New Testament accounts, how tenable is such an idea?
Vajradhara said:well... to get the brass tacks, so to speak.. God killed Jesus... seeing as how Jesus is God and all of that sort of thing. Jesus' death was ordained by God/himself so that he could fulfill the requirement of sacrifice that He established for the atonement of sin.

It is 100% correct.LothlorienHeadRush said:The truth is, no matter what any Christian says (I myself am a strong Roman Catholic), the Holy Bible is not 100% correct. In The New Testament, all the cannon gospels somehow contridict what the other says, and to me, only portions of the NT are correct.
I said:If God had already arranged for Jesus to be sacrificed, then isn't the blame entirely God's?
Sorry to disagree with you, but Christ cannot die. Jesus could as he was ultimately a human like all of us.LothlorienHeadRush said:In my opinion, although I concur with the fact that Christ was supposed to die, I agree that the act was commited (although not in the physical sense) by the Jews. (...) was meant to die, the act was requested upon by the Jews
I had my little outburst before remembering that. What if one considers the NT inerrant? Then yeah, I guess them Jews did it.Vapour said:But this is *theory* has no relevance if you consider the bible to be words of God.
