Jews killed jesus, right? Based on Christian doctrines Jesus had to die anyway for all our sins so that we could be forgiven etc.... Let's rewrite history for a moment and pretend that the Jews (and Romans, too) didn't kill Jesus. How would this concept ever have worked out about him dying for our sins etc... would it have become null and void? What I am saying more or less is for our salvation someone had to do away with Jesus. So, would't Jews then have done a big favor for the Christians? Should we not be thankful for them for what they did? Also, another perplexing thing - isn't one of Christian doctrines about forgiveness and loving your enemy? How can Christians hold grudge, kill and persecute a group of people for over 2000 years? Sounds kind of unchristian to me ... What is the theological view about these things?
