Did The Jews Kill Jesus?

  • What did Jesus do that was worthy of the Death Sentence?
  • We know that Jesus did die on the cross.

1. Many of Jesus’ actions and claims tended to offend the law-abiding people.

  • His association with the common people gave offence the educated and higher class. Matthew 9:10-11
  • Some of His offences were punishable by death.
    • To break the Law of the Sabbath was punishable by death, Exodus 31:12-14; 35:2
      • Jesus’ disciples plucked ears of corn on the Sabbath. Matthew 12:1-8
      • Jesus broke the Sabbath Law by healing people on the Sabbath. Matthew 12:10-15
      • Jesus even claimed to be the Lord of the Sabbath with authority to do on that day as He pleased. Matthew 12:8
    • Jesus’ attitude toward God was considered blasphemous and worthy of death.
    • The third deadly sin Jesus was guilty of was – seducing the Jews away from their  faith.  Deuteronomy 13:6-11
      • In Matthew 14:33 Jesus is worshiped and this could be considered leading the Jews away from their faith.
      • This was also breaking the 1st and second commandment. Exodus 20:3-4
  • So it appears that Jesus did do some things that under the Jewish law – He should be arrested – tried – and be sentenced to die.

2. But the truth is that Jesus never did break any Jewish Laws nor did He do anything worthy on a death sentence.

  • The problem was that the Jewish Rulers were afflicted with “ignorance” of the Word of God.
  • The TRUTH IS: Jesus is the Son of God and He is God. John 14:8-11
    • So He could forgive sin.
    • So He could be worshiped.
    • So He could do what He wanted to on the Sabbath. (He did things for others and not for Himself)
    • So He could not blaspheme God, for he is God.
    • So He was totally innocent, just as Pilate proclaimed, “I find no fault in this man.”

3. So, who killed Jesus?   (The REAL TRUTH about Jesus’ Death.)

  • Jesus said in John 10:11-18
    • Vs. 11 – “I …give my life for the sheep.”  Isaiah 53:6
    • Vs. 15 – “I lay down my life for the sheep.”
    • Vs. 17 – “I lay down my life that I might take it again.”
    • Vs. 18 – “I have power to lay it down…I have power to take it again.”
  • Jesus said on the cross:
    • How He laid down His life - Luke 23:46. “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.”
    • How He took it up His life again – Matthew 28:1-6. “He is risen, as He said.”
  • The TRUTH IS: Jesus Gave His life for you, for me and for the whole world. John 3:16
  • NOBODY KILLED JESUS! (How can anyone kill somebody who can lay his life down and take up  again?)
