I watched how the Jews killed OUR Jesus in Mel Gibson´s "The Passion".

Jews, the chosen race? Or the Devil´s spawn?

I report. You decide.


So what? In those days, the penalty for lots of things was death. The Jews considered Jesus a false prophet, a serious violation of Mosaic law. I presume the Romans considered him, at the least, a trouble-making agitator.

Remember, Jesus was crucified along with two petty thieves. Yet, under the mores of that time, Jesus's offense (apostasy) was far worse than petty thievery.

Lots of people were crucified, maimed, stoned, burned, racked, impaled, disemboweled, drawn and quartered, keelhauled, etc., for pretty minor offenses, until relatively recently.

I think it's pretty fanciful to judge the Jews of 2,000 years ago by how we think people should act today, in response to an analagous situation.
