Who mocked, tortured and killed Jesus?
According to the gospels, it was the Gentiles and this is consistent in that the Romans were already crucifying the Jews.
But why is it that I keep reading pious remarks as though the Christians are the ones to be forgiving the Jewish when they (the Gentiles) are the ones who not only killed Jesus, but MANY of the Jewish People in the name of covering their guilt and sins? It is odd. Seeing that the Jewish were not the ones to have benefited from this move, it is ridiculous to try and pin the betrayal on them… and even if you could, the Gentiles are clearly stated as being the ones to have done the work and history has shown time and again that this is a pattern that has not been provoked by the Jewish toward their own!!
Matthew 20:19 “And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him”
Luke 18: 32-33 “For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on: And they shall scourge him, and put him to death”
Did the Jewish deliver themselves into the hands of the Gentiles during the Crusades? Did they lay each other down to be tortured for no reason for not accepting Christianity during the Inquisitions? Did they hand over their own people to Hitler and tell him to use Christianity to gain support in slaughtering their own children, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, grandparents… get the point?
I do not understand this smug attitude that is displayed so often by Christians toward the Jewish:
“Jesus said to forgive and so we forgive you for killing OUR saviour.”
Refrains from too bluntly stating what I think in regards to that attitude
YOU ARE THE ONES WHO KILLED HIM ACCORDING TO YOUR OWN GOSPELS!
Please, explain to me this hypocritical high horse that some of you have been riding on top of. I am listening and ready to learn why they should be forgiven by the Gentiles for the Gentiles slaughtering their (the Jews) own people in the name of Christianity… including Jesus, even though the NT clearly places the blame on the Gentiles. :rolleyes:
