but the Romans had no reason to take Jesus, beyond which the elders of the Jews wanted Him to be crucified. *I* believe that the 'indigenous population' were much like those now who are paid to show up and be angry--
The simple, poor, humble people had no reason to hate Jesus and want Him crucified.
I use the word crucified for a reason; Jesus could have saved Himself; He chose to do what He did, because:
"God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son . . ."
But the fact that the Romans did it (when they only had power over life) was a technicality, and pointing it out to anyone who has read the Gospels as much as I have is . . .
straining at gnats.
it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
