the people you described could not crucify ANYONE.
Crucifixion ain't kosher. Contrary to the notations in your
Sunday school coloring book, even the one showing a man
nailed on a cross------it could not be done. The romans did it,
the greek freaks did it, the persians did it------but there were no
kosher hebrew national crosses----ever. Even Herod didn't do it.
Knocking off the head of John the Baptist was not exactly kosher--
but even he would not CRUCIFY John-----he had jews in the family.
They would never have eaten in THAT palace again
The Romans didn't give a fig about Jesus.. nor did Herod Antipas.. Jesus was in no danger if he stayed around Galilee. He was in danger from the Jerusalemites.
