Throughout the centuries of Christianity, the Jews have often been unjustly accused and vilified as the killers of Christ. Neither the Bible nor the Church has ever made such a statement, but individuals on their own have promoted this horrible lie. Historically, the Roman soldiers were the ones who scourged and crucified Jesus until He died on Good Friday. While it is true that Jewish religious leaders from the Sanhedrin conspired with Judas for thirty pieces of silver to betray Christ so as to easily arrest him, they did not by any means represent the entire Jewish population nor the Hebrew faith.
While Jews in general cannot be blamed, neither can Romans or their descendants (the Italians). Specific persons of the Jewish religious leadership sought the demise of Jesus and falsely accused him in court so as to ensure a death penalty. The real culprits, those who are guilty of the horrible death of Jesus, are every single human being who ever lived or will live. All of us have blood on our hands. We are all guilty. He died because of our sins. It does not matter who was there two thousand years ago. Humanity sinned against God and humanity had to be redeemed and saved through the Crucifixion of Jesus.
