• No, he owed the Mafia money so we hunted him down. We stil have him if anyone wants to pay for a view or a signature
  • Yes. But more importantly, he was an embarrassment to the temple priests.
  • Generally...yes, charges were that He (Jesus) declared himself to be the “King” of the Jews, which would make Him equal to Rome (to Cesar.) If you are really interested – read Bible, Gospel of John 18,33–37, it may help. In Christ..
  • Possibly a terrorist? Using todays definition of the word...
  • Why Jesus was executed: Jesus wasn’t murdered because he was Holy, he was murdered for being an Outlaw that was Holy. ~Hat3r
  • Today's logic people usually end up screwing the wrong person.
  • Jesus Christ was executed for promoting insurrection against the "government" of occupied Israel. You must remember the native government of Palestine at the time was a Theocracy - and even though it was under a military occupation from the Roman empire the day to day affairs of state were still continued through the domestic administration. Rome was just interested in collecting it's taxes - not the day to day business of running a small troublesome backward province in it's empire.
  • There isn't a shred of contemporaneous historical evidence proving that he ever lived, much less was executed. Not a word was written about Jesus until two generations after he was alleged to have lived.
  • jesus spoke to much truth, and until this very day if you stand up for the truth you will die, kennedy, mlk, malcolm x and so many.
  • Not exactly, but it appears that many did consider him that, as they called his followers a sect.;acts24:14;%20John15:19-20;2tim3:12;&version=77;49;9;16;31;
  • For being a leader that rose up against the "leading religion" was the reason he was executed. He "thought" to much...and they didnt like it.
  • In those days, yes I am sure some people seen him as one.
  • He was a Rabble Rouser who pissed off the Caesar.
  • No. He was killed for defying those in power and giving the entire known world (at the time) a glimmer of hope and something to believe in (and without the internet no less). Sounds pretty noble to me, why do so many people f*ck with something or someone like that yo?...
  • Yeah, in a way. That's what his persecutors thought He was. A trouble maker too.
  • He was killed because he was a threat to the Roman empire.
  • That is not what the charges were. The charges were declaring himself the Son of God and blasphemy and they plotted against Him when He challenged them when they did not like Him healing and forgiving people on the Sabbath. Matthew chapter 25 The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for false evidence against Jesus so that they could put him to death. But they did not find any, though many false witnesses came forward. Finally two came forward and declared, "This fellow said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God and rebuild it in three days.' " Then the high priest stood up and said to Jesus, "Are you not going to answer? What is this testimony that these men are bringing against you?" But Jesus remained silent. The high priest said to him, "I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Christ,the Son of God." "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied. "But I say to all of you: In the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven." Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, "He has spoken blasphemy! Why do we need any more witnesses? Look, now you have heard the blasphemy. What do you think?" "He is worthy of death," they answered.
  • Wasn't he in Wacko?
  • it was looked on him as that in some ways, especially when they said that he was a blasphemer.+2
  • No, he was charged by the Sanhedrin with blasphemy because he said that He was the Son of God. He also violated the Jewish law against working on the sabbath,by healing in the temple on the sabbath. He also spoke of His kingdom- which sounded like a threat to both Rome and the Jewish leaders, but Jesus was speaking of spiritual kingdom, not a political force, and that is where the misunderstandings are. Herod found Him noit guilty but caved into the political pressure put on him by the Sanhedrin and ordered him crucified, fearing that if he didn't that would be a riot and then his political position would have been in danger of being lost.
  • Depends on your perspective.
  • He was executed for claiming to be God. Even today, someone claiming to be God is blasphemy. 2000 years ago, blasphemy was a capital crime.
  • (Assuming he existed at all) I think he was executed for being a political rebel, which would have made him unpopular with the Romans and with the established Jewish clergy. If someone like that lived today he'd likely be labelled an anarchist, a hippy and a liberal.
  • Yes, but his resurrection showed them he was the real deal....
  • He probably was a terrorist of his time. A threat to the rulers. We do not even know. Also might be considered as a cult leader of that time too. History can be interpreted whichever way the most poweful wanted it to be.
