WHO KILLED JESUS ?

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 question who killed Christ by both Jewish and non-Jewish friends, since I became a believer in 1985. 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.

In Genesis Chapter 5 there is a listing of the names of the Descendants of Adam. It is a genealogy of 10 names from Adam through Noah.

Hidden within Genesis 5 is the oldest prophecy that God established regarding His eternal plan of redemption for mankind, which is the Gospel, The Cross of Jesus.

Every Hebrew letter or number has a meaning. When we interpret the Hebrew meaning of each of these 10 names, they form the most fascinating sentence in the entire Bible.

Adam……………………………man (is)
Seth……………………………..appointed
Enosh……………………………mortal
kenan……………………………sorrow (but)
Mahalalel……………………….The Blessed God
Jared…………………………….shall come down
Enoch……………………………teaching
Methusaleh……………………..His Death Shall Bring
Lamech…………………………. the despairing
Noah……………………………..comfort and rest.

Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow (but) The Blessed God shall come down teaching, His Death Shall Bring the despairing comfort and rest.

How awesome is God, that within the Hebrew names of a genealogy in the Old Testament, HE would hide the New Testament Plan of Redemption. (Salvation, bought for all through the death on the Cross of Gods Son, Jesus / Yeshua the Messiah of Israel!).

Yes, every person that ever lived contributed to Christ’s death because of their Sin. Yet it was God His Fathers plan to put HIS own Son Jesus the Messiah, to death on the Cross. Listen again, as God speaks through the Prophet Isaiah about the crushing of the Messiah. In Isaiah 53 vs. 10 “but the Lord was pleased to crush Him, putting Him to grief as a guilt offering”.

Jesus, volunteered for the assignment in Heaven. We read in the book of Hebrews 12 vs 2 that Jesus willingly laid HIS life down, “ Who for the JOY set before HIM endured the Cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Jesus knew in eternity past that HE would go to the Cross and that HE would be Resurrected. But HE also knew the Joy of a future eternity filled with His redeemed people, bought by HIS Blood because of HIS willing sacrifice on that Cross for you.

Yes, I killed Christ, you killed Christ, the Romans Killed Christ, the Jews killed Christ………all of Mankind Killed Christ. Fixing the blame isn’t important! What is important is to accept Jesus’s death on the Cross for your Sin’s. Placing your hand in HIS so HE can welcome you to your new home in heaven when you die.

Take HIS hand; it is GODS HAND reaching out to save you from yourself and your 2nd death, YOUR ETERNAL DEATH that Satan wants you to experience Forever.
