    Everyone knows that the Romans were ready to release Jesus, finding no fault at all in Him; knowing that the Jews had delivered Him up out of envy. It was to avoid a riot, because of the violent hatred of the crowds, stirred up by their rulers, THE JEWS! To this day that same hatred and hostility and utter blindness presides over the Jewish mind, preventing him from at all hearing the Gospel!

    The Romans Crucified Jesus not The Jews.

    George, Jesus is the Messiah who sacrificed himself for the sin of the world so God can accept us. The jews killed him and fulfilled his purpose for coming. So accept him as your Messiah so you

    can be saved.
