Who Really Killed Jesus?
Not Who you May think.
Who really killed Jesus? The answer to that question may not be what you think. The answer may be the truth whether or not you accept Christian Theology. Those most guilty say they do and that is all that matters, as the Bhagavad Gita claims.
That is the riddle, who killed Jesus and why is that important? Some blame the Jews, some blame the Romans, and some blame both. Others blame everyone who ever lived. To that, the latter, there is some merit, as for the former, they are wrong, and certainly intelligent, enlightened people know that-Neither the Jews, nor the Roman's were the main causes of the events which transpired 2000 years ago, hours before the First Easter.
The Christian Mystics have the theory that the evils committed by each member of human kind, piled up and caused the necessary death* of Jesus-these included the sins of those yet to come, us, even. Personally, I don't buy the theory, or the need for redemption*. However, I have added my own mystical/pseudo-scientific, ideas to the theory.
The theory's details are often murky, but they do ascribe to it certain matters, which measure the degree of seriousness of each offense. A single murder, for instance, had and still has great impact on the Complexity of Creation and therefore, theoretically on the suffering of Jesus. Some believe he suffers yet, so great were the number of offenses against God's integrity and goodness.
The Commandments (the first 10 of the 613 Commandments, at least) were listed in priority order. The first three relating to Human kind's relationship to or with God, the next the fourth, to or with God's emissaries, guardians of the bodies and souls, the parents of God's children. Following the Fourth Commandment, the fifth-killing ranks as the worst offence. However, it is the first in the line of crimes among humans to each other, not relating to their Creator or their guardians.
There is no excuse whatsoever for ignoring God's law against killing another human being and ending the tenure on earth of someone God, in His complexity of planning, saw fit to place here at that specific time and place. That placement, that was a strategic and therefore, necessary cog in a greater wheel. It was part of a vast and complex plan, as complex as the quantum and more so. A plan, inconceivable to humans of ordinary minds (save those of selected prophets). Breaching that plan displays the basest contempt for the Creator of the universe.
For each person killed the penalty must be accelerated, not just because a Human is dead, but because that Human now dead has had his part in the complexity of the cosmos, his place on the quantum and in the 4.5 billion years chart of progression of his planet and the 15-20 Billion year progression of all of creation within this universe, interrupted and corrupted.
Therefore, a Human, a cog, and one not disconnected to the Gestalt of God's Creational plan-a plan which must not, under any conditions, save those of self-defense, be corrupted or interrupted. That is the crime. More added to it, is the crime of doing harm to many who do not die and to the children, "he which harms even a hair on the heads of these little ones, it would be better for him had he hung a millstone around his neck and dropped himself into the sea..."
And the penalty for this crime is exponentially expanded for each offense. Thus the crime for killing two is much greater than for one, squared for two, squared again for 3, again for 4 and again for 5 and so on.
For each, the trade-off for what God must do to offset these multiplying evils and their penalties, is create a special, place for those who commit multiple offenses, separating them forever from others more civilized.
And Why is That Important? Is one of paramount import, at least to Christians. Of such preeminence, that even anyone who stands in the way of the exposure and punishment of those guilty of the crime must be also brought to justice.
In keeping with the theory, as long as the crimes facing men were of minimal importance ordinary measures would suffice to adjudicate them. However, should any human show contempt for God's intellect and His planning, that one shall be anathema, and if the crimes of that one, or others multiply, greater measures must be taken for the good of the rest of Human kind.
The more a human or human kind defile God's planning, the more he must exact a penalty. To deflect that penalty, too terrible for a man to sustain, and horrific for a soul to endure, so the theory* goes, Jesus, the Son of the Almighty, offered Himself as scapegoat, to deflect the suffering of man.
