    How does one respond when people say that the Jews killed Jesus? Jesus said he had the power to lay down his life and take it up again. Does that mean he is the Jew to blame? Blame is not the correct term but credit and glory to Jesus for taking his life up again. I love the Jews and pray for them to be protected from persecution. Jesus forgave his persecutors on the cross, can we do no less?

    This is another instance of the problem with collectivist thinking. It's individuals who commit crimes, not ethnic groups.

    Indeed. What else could one say, here? This thread has gone far beyond the real world into irredeemable territory. It was completely blown on Page 2. There's just no pulling it out. I won't even try.

    If ever a thread needed to be locked....

    Agreed. Time to quote something wise - like Sirach 8:3 - here and to lock this thing.

    The Scriptures assign the blame to both the Jews and the Gentiles. For example, in Acts 2:22-23, Peter assigned the blame to the Israelites as a collective and to the Gentiles. Speaking to a huge gathering of Israelites, from all over the Roman Empire, who had gathered at Pentecost, he said, "Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know. This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men [lawless Gentiles (see also Matthew 20:19, Mark 10:33, Luke 18:32)]put him to death by nailing him to the cross."
