Who’s Guilty?

As those of you who read these blogs know, I’ve struggled these last few weeks with why Jesus had to die in such a painful way. He died for our sins, but couldn’t he have died without being flogged half to death and without the cruel tortures of crucifixion? His death was prophesied, yes, but how could a merciful God of love do nothing to prevent such a horrendous death for his Son. This Easter morning, God reminded me who clamored, actually demanded over and over, for Jesus to be crucified. The instigators were the religious authorities of the time and the common people. It was me!
