Yet all the earliest sources attest to the crucifixion of Jesus.These sources include, in addition to the New Testament writings, the Jewish historian Josephus (Antiquities 18.3.3, A. 95) and the Roman historian Tacitus (Annals 15.44, A. 109)(Photo: Painting by El Greco, “The Crucifixion,” 1596-1600) Again, all New Testament Gospels agree on these basic facts, and there is every reason to believe that they are accurate (though the precise timing of Jesus’ death in relationship to Passover is hard to pin down).These basic facts, though apparently obvious and unspectacular, will actually prove to be very helpful as we try to figure out the reasons for Jesus’ death.As I mentioned in my previous post, the question “Why did Jesus have to die? I propose to address this question from four different perspectives: • Roman: Why did Pontius Pilate think Jesus had to die?So, I will say at the outset that nothing in the historical record justifies hatred of or mistreat of Jews, or any other people, for that matter. From a historical point of view, we have to deal with at least two perspectives, Roman and Jewish.In fact, I’ll show that there was more than one Jewish point of view on Jesus’ death.In my opinion, as you’ll see, the pendulum that had once swung way too far in the direction of “the Jews” has now swung too far back in the opposite “Romans only” direction. I should add at this point that I am aware of the shameful history of anti-Semitism and the danger of anti-Semitism that is very much alive today.This does make it tricky to deal with the historical evidence in a straightforward way, because if one concludes that some Jews were somewhat responsible for the death of Jesus, this might fuel anti-Semitic attitudes and actions.
All I ask is that you give credit to this website: ” At the outset, I must say that this isn’t an easy question to answer for several reasons. Therefore, when I try to explain why Pilate or certain Jewish leaders believed that Jesus had to die, I’ll have to extrapolate from the evidence that is available to us.
God has come in Jesus Christ to take our sins and die upon the cross so that we might be forgiven!
When we lit the third, pink candle, we felt joyful even in our longing for Christ to come.
Christmas Eve or Christmas Day [Re-light the three purple candles and the pink candle] We Celebrate the Birth of Christ In the season of Advent we have used the Advent wreath and its candles to help us get ready for this great celebration of the birth of Christ.
