Why Was Jesus Killed?

Why was Jesus killed? This is an interesting quest that many people never ask themselves. The usual pat answer is that he died for our sins. And while that is true, I want to know why the chief priests kill Jesus. You see there are very few good answers to this question. I think to understand the nature of the situation in Jerusalem circa 30AD may shed some light into just why he was killed.

The Gospels are quite clear; people wanted to and tried to kill him throughout most of the story. All four accounts naturally end with his death, so we shouldn’t be surprised when he is killed – but this still doesn’t answer why he was killed.


Wanna know why I think so? Read all entire post read --> here

i think your analysis of the events at the temple are spot on. especially for Mark's gospel - the temple events are the catalyst for his arrest.

have you had anyone try to convince you that jesus actions at the temple (whipping people and animals) was violent? how do you respond to them?

Yeah, this seems to be the one response that people use to support Jesus using violence to promote his message. And it's been an arguement that I struggled with, but even the argument is flawed.

I think it's Walter Wink (maybe JH Yoder) who pointed out he's using the whip to scatter animals. Which makes sense...and I do not think that this is an act of violence... herding animals?

What do you think?
