Why does the Bible tell of the Jews trying to kill Jesus and also stoning people to death?


#1

Hi, if the Jews were forbidden to kill under the roman Law, how come bible tells of the Jews trying to kill Jesus and also stoning people to death?

Thanks in advance.

The Jews were trying to entrap Jesus in speaking treason precisely so the Romans would execute him.

As for the stoning, well, that was a mob. Mobs tend to do unlawful things and aren’t dissuaded by “but that’s illegal!”.

Laws dont mean much to a lot of people. Look what is happening today between Gaza and Israel!
