Who Killed Jesus? #38

The answer to this provocative question might be surprising: There is enough evidence to indict the whole human race. No one is innocent except Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.)
1. Satan & Judas (Luke 22:3 And Satan entered into Judas who was called Iscariot, belonging to the number of the twelve. 4 And he went away and discussed with the chief priests and officers how he might betray Him to them.)
2. Jewish religious leaders (John 5:18 For this reason therefore the Jews were seeking all the more to kill Him, because He not only was breaking the Sabbath, but also was calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God.; John 11: 49 But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all, 50 nor do you take into account that it is expedient for you that one man die for the people, and that the whole nation not perish.)
3. Roman political leaders (Acts 4:27a For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate)
4. Jewish population (Matthew 27:22 Pilate *said to them, “Then what shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?” They all *said, “Crucify Him!” Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ—this Jesus whom you crucified.)
5. God the Father (Isaiah 53:4d smitten of God, 6 All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him. 10a But the LORD was pleased To crush Him, putting Him to grief; Acts 2:23 this Man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put Him to death.)
6. The whole world (Acts 4:27 For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel; 1 Timothy 2:6 who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time; 1 John 2:2 and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world )
