I am a Messianic (Jewish) believer in Jesus. That means I believe Jesus is the Messiah that the Jewish people are looking for. Jesus is also the Christ of Christianity. Jesus is one and the same, the SON of GOD. I have been asked the above question by both Jewish and non-Jewish friends; since the release of Mel Gibson’s movie “The Passion of Christ”. The following is my answer to the question, “Who killed Jesus, The Christ”.
The “ANSWER” to this question can simply be put into one sentence. But understanding the question and the far reaching implications that the “ANSWER” has attached to it requires a much greater “ANSWER” than one simple sentence can express.
Who killed Christ? I did, you did, every human being that has walked this earth did, the Romans did and the Jews did. But, THE PERSON who bears sole responsibility for the death of The Christ is GOD, HIS Father.
The God who created the universe, the earth, mankind and all that is upon the earth, also created Time and History. The mystery of history is that it is really HIS- Story, the story of Jesus/Yeshua the Messiah, the Christ.
History is the story of how and why Gods only Son chose to enter space and time to die on a Cross for the Sin’s of everyone. So that when we die, you and I could have a way to go home to be with God in Heaven.
