The questions I posed dealing with the murder of Jesus were designed to get Christians and other interested parties to think a little more deeply about the Crucifixion ;beyond the advanced sophomoric sunday school level.
And i was disappointed with all the answers .
Any cursory review of Gospel accounts would indicate the commonly held beliefs about the who,why and for what reason Jesus was killed.

But what I wanted you to think about was the abject hatred in the hearts of those who murdered him. If Jesus was the very personification of compassion ,love and generosity;if he was the physical manifestation of God in the flesh who healed the sick and terminally ill ,fed the hungry and treated everyone with mercy and love;and if he treated those that were not of his culture with the same love and compassion;then who but the very demons of hell would want to sadistically ,torture and murder him?
Think about who we are dealing with.

all who answered get a C- for the exam.

Clearly, you don't understand people at all.

A higher grade than I usually get. I'm satisfied.
