The Murder Of Jesus Christ - Who Done It?

There is an ongoing debate as to why, how and who is actually guilty for the murder of Jesus Christ. The scriptures are clear about the identity of those responsible. However, today many Christians seem to be eager to accept the movie version of the trial of Jesus Christ instead of reading the bible for an accurate account of the events that led up to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

In one of the earlier subjects, we covered several scriptures proving these impostors, (the seed/offspring of Satan) had indeed injected themselves into a leadership role into the religious and everyday affairs of the tribe of Judah. Through lies and deception many of the chief priests, elders, scribes, pharisees and Sadducees were in fact impostors, (the seed/offspring of Satan).

When the police are investigating a murder, they first look for a possible suspect and motive. In John chapter 8 starting in verses 39-44 we find one of the motives of these Jew impostors as to why they wanted Christ dead. He is exposing them for what and who they truly are.

Verse 39: “They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus said unto them, if ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.”

Verse 40: “But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.”

Verse 41: “Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, we be not born of fornication; we have one father, even God.”

Verse 42: “Jesus said unto them, if God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.”

Verse 43: “Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.”

Verse 44: “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

Another motive is given in John chapter 11 verses 47-48.

Verse 47: “Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, what do we? for this man doeth many miracles.”

Verse 48: “If we let him thus alone, all man will believe on him: and the Roman's shall come and take away both our place and nation.”

So now we know of at least three motives for these impostors to want to kill Christ. One was the fact that Christ was exposing them as frauds and impostors. The second motive was their fear that the Romans would take away their place/position and nation/rule.

The third was their fear that the people would believe Christ and wake up to their lies and deception. Now is there any evidence in the scriptures showing that these same impostors, that Christ is exposing were conspiring to kill him. Let us read Matthew chapter 26 verses 3-4.

Verse 3: “Then assembled together the chief Priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas.”

Verse 4: “And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtlety and kill him.”

Mark chapter 3 verse 6: “And the pharisees went forth, and straightaway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.”

Luke chapter 22 verse 2: “And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people.”

John chapter 7 verse 1: “After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.”

I tell you what, let us have Christ tell us who is going to kill him.

Matthew chapter 16 verse 21: “From that time forth began Jesus to show unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.”

Now let us hear from Paul, one of Christ disciples about these Jew impostors, in I Thessalonians chapter 2 verse 15.

Verse 15: “Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God and are contrary to all men.”

Speaking of Paul, he to, like all that follow Christ is targeted by these Jew impostors, as we read in Acts chapter 9 verse 23: “And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him.”


These same Jew impostors launched a campaign against Christ to twist his words in order to make up false charges so they could arrest him and kill him.

In Luke chapter 20 verses 19-20 we read, verse 19: “And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and they feared the people: for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them.”

Verse 20: “And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor.”

The word feign in the Webster's dictionary means to give a false appearance, to represent falsely, to fabricate.

Then Judas, whom Jesus tells us in John chapter 6 verse 70 is of the devil goes to the chief priests to bargain for money for the betrayal of Jesus.

In Matthew chapter 26 verses 14-16 we read, verse 14: “Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went onto the chief priests.“

Verse 15: “And said unto them, what will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.”

Verse 16: “And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.”


Mark chapter 14 verse 43. Verse 43: “And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.”

John chapter 18 verse 3. Verse 3: “Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.”


We know who wanted Christ dead. We know who planned the entrapment of Christ and we know who was responsible for the arrest of Christ, with the help of course from the traitor Judas. It was not Roman soldiers, but soldiers sent by the chief priests, elders, and Pharisees. What happens next is recorded in Matthew chapter 26 starting in verse 57.

Verse 57: “And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled.”

Verse 59: “Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death.”

Then in verse 61 two false witnesses came forward and said that Jesus told them he could destroy the temple of God and rebuild it in three days.

Verse 63: “But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.”

Verse 64: “Jesus said unto him, thou hast said: nevertheless, I say unto you, hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power and coming in the clouds of heaven.”

Verse 65: “Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? Behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.”

Verse 66: “What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.”


In any trial there are four main actors. Judge, Jury, Prosecutor and Defense Attorney. These next few scriptures clearly show us what takes place with Pilate as not just the judge, but also Christ defense attorney.

Matthew chapter 27 verses 1-2, 11-14, 18-20, 24-25.

Verse 1: “When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took council against Jesus to put him to death.”

Verse 2: “And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.”

Verse 11: “And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.”

Verse 12: “And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.”

Verse 13: “Then said Pilate to him, hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee.”

Verse 14: And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marveled greatly.”

In verse 14 Jesus gives no answer to Pilate's question. Then in verse 18 Pilate makes it clear that he knows exactly why they want Christ dead, envy.

Verse 18: “For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.”

Now in verse 19 Pilate's wife comes to him and informs her husband that she has been warned by God about his role in this sham of a trial.

Verse 19: “When he was sat down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.”

Now Pilate has already given the crowd of Jew impostors the choice between Jesus and Barabbas, but they cried out destroy Jesus.

Verse 20: “But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas and destroy Jesus.”

Verse 24: “When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.”

Verse 25: “Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.”

In John chapter 19 verses 4, 6&8 Pilate continues to be a defense attorney for Christ, verse 4: “Pilate therefore went forth again, and said unto them, behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.

Verse 6: “When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out saying, crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.”

Verse 8: “When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid.”

Verse 8 shows that Pilate was afraid of this crowd of Jew impostors and their demand for Jesus to be crucified.

Then he goes back to Jesus in verses 9, 12, 14-16.

Verse 9: “And went again into the judgment hall, and said unto Jesus, whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.”

Verse 12: “And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, if thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.”

Verse 14: “And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and he said unto the Jews, behold your King!”

Verse 15: “But they cried out, away with him, away with him,

crucify him. Pilate said unto them, shall I crucify your King? The chief priest answered, We have no king but Caesar.”

Verse 16: “Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus and led him away.”

Only these lying, deceitful antichrist Jew impostors, the seed/offspring of Satan, are guilty of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Only they wanted Jesus dead and figured that if they had Pilate find him guilty and have him crucified that the people would blame the Romans. But Pilate outsmarted them by giving the Jew IMPOSTOR crowd/jury a choice between Jesus and Barabbas. Pilate washed his hands of the blood of this just man, Jesus Christ. The fact is, in Matthew chapter 27 verse 25 these seed of Satan Jew impostors cursed themselves when they said, “His blood be on us and on our children”.

These Jew impostors were both jury and prosecutor, and with false witnesses the jury found Jesus guilty. They and only they gave the sentence of crucifixion.

Let me make it truly clear, if you or I were arrested and charged with a crime, and went to trial, and got a crooked prosecutor and that prosecutor presented crooked witnesses, and the jury was crooked, and if you or I were found guilty, who would you blame for the conviction?

Well in I Thessalonians chapter 2 verses 14&15 Paul clearly identifies who is guilty of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

Verse 14: “For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Jesus Christ: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews.”

Verse 15: “Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God and are contrary to all men.”

At the beginning of this subject the question was, Who Done it? Now you know.
