THE JEWS KILLED CHRIST
“Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto
the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to
scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again” (Mat 20:18-19).
“And straightway in the morning the chief
priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered
him to Pilate” (Mark 15:1).
“For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him [to death] for envy” (Mark 15:10).
therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them. But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. And he said unto them
the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go.
And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.
And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required” (Luke 23:20-24).
“And he said unto them, What things? And they said
unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: And how the chief
priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him” (Luke 24:19-20).
“When ye [Pharisees,
Jews] have lifted up [crucified] the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he [Christ], and that I do nothing of myself; but as
my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always
those things that please him” (John 8:28-29).
“Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do
we? for this man [Christ] doeth many miracles. If we let him thus alone, all will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take
away both our place and nation. And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing
at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And
this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that
nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. Then from that day forth
they took counsel together for to put him to death (John 11:47-53).
“Then led they [Jewish high priest, the Jews] Jesus from
Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled;
but that they might eat the passover. Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man? They answered
and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee. Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye
him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death: That
the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die” (John 18:28-32).
“And it was the
preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with
him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but
Caesar. Then delivered he [Pilate] him [Christ] therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away” (John
“Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and
signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge
of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain” (Acts 2:22-23).
“Therefore let all the house of Israel know
assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ” (Act 2:36).
“And when Peter saw
it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own
power or holiness we had made this man to walk? The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified
his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go. But ye denied
the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from
the dead; whereof we are witnesses” (Acts 3:12-15).
“For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea
are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: Who both killed
the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men” (1 Thessalonians

"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper
than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder
and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner
of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any
that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked
and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
Seeing then that
we have a great high priest, that is passed
into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our
profession. For we have
not an high priest which cannot be
