Who Killed Jesus?

0

On the day of Pentecost, after healing a lame man, Peter said…

 Acts 3:12-15  …Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?   The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.  But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;  And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.

He was betrayed by one of His followers:

 Luke 22:47-48  And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.  But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

The group that came to arrest Jesus was composed of Roman soldiers, Jewish servants, and Judas:

 John 18:12  Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, John 18:13  And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.

He was tried in a Jewish court by Caiphas (although this court had no authority to execute His death)

 John 18:14  Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
