We are told in the Gospels that those who handed Jesus over to the Roman authorities were more culpable.
You are right about Jesus dying for all of us, but in a strictly worldly legalistic-at-that-time, *some Jews at that time* were more to be blamed for Jesus' death than the executioners.
Jesus later, on the cross, asked God to forgive them for they knew not what they were doing. I'm not sure any more who "them" is.
But facts is facts, pc or not.
Aliska, re-read my post. I was responding to the statement regarding the Romans having Killed jesus. That was why I put the statement in italics ... it was a quote of a previous post.
The Romans DID kill Jesus ... but, as I added, at the instigation of the Jewish authorities. Both were the instruments God used to carry out the sacrifice. That's historical fact.
My post was making a far more important theological observation: we have no business blaming Jews, OR Romans, for the death of Jesus. WE killed him, with every sin we commit. Focusing upon who did the deed, and who turned Jesus over to whom, misdirects us away from the focus and import of the atoning sacrifice which our Lord made upon the cross for OUR sins.
In other words, issues of political correctness are entirely beside the point. indeed, this is the first time I've EVER heard orthodox Christian theology called pc.
