It was God's will that he died (by which hand it does not matter)
He died for our sins.
Oh wait... Maybe it was men "like you" who claim to follow yet do not understand Love. You are here as if you are a Christian, but I beg to differ friend - Read the Words or our God and learn something instead of flooding the threads and replys with nonsense.
TECHNICALLY speaking, and only for historical, rather than biblical info, we know that the Roman Legions and a Roman Governor were in charge of that entire region. The agitation of the common people by the Pharasees and Hebrew temple 'priests' were the catalyst in causing the Roman Governor to make the decision that he made to have Christ excecuted.
We also know, BIBLICALLY, that King David wrote about these happenings in prophesy 1000 years before they actually took place. Compare the words in the Old Testament Psalm 22 (KJV) with the text as found in the New Testament - Matthew 27-28 (KJV), Mark 15 (KJV), Luke 23 (KJV) right down to King David's prophesy about the Roman Soldiers casting lots for Christ's clothing.
This excecution was all part of God's plan to allow MAN to be saved if MAN wanted to be saved, through the belief in Christ as the Savior and through His blood being shed for our sins.
the way i see it ,Jesus defeated satan in the wilderness.satan being upset gets john the baptist jailed by spirit.using people to do his will.also be heading john.and then killing Jesus.satan never expected God to appear in human form.so when Jesus died then he kept the keys to death and hell.and God brought Jesus back.so satan is defeated as in he can,t trap people no more.we have freedom with Jesus he holds the keys not just of death and hell,but of life,and paradise.
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep.
just as my Father knows me and I know the Father. So I sacrifice my life for the sheep.
“The Father loves me because I sacrifice my life so I may take it back again.
No one can take my life from me. I sacrifice it voluntarily. For I have the authority to lay it down when I want to and also to take it up again. For this is what my Father has commanded.”
Hard to say - it really depends on if you believe that Satan knew what God's plan was. Was Satan trying to prevent his crucifixion? I'm assuming that all Jesus' words were heard by the enemy also.
Matthew 27:19-20 (KJV)
When he [Pilate] was set 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.  But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
God planned the crucifixion - so the dream was not sent by him. Evil is the nature of mankind - it is not always controllable by Satan. Or was this just a case of a bad hamburger in her case?
Mike I confess- it was my sin that crucified Christ. If we walk as He did- in total submission to the Father's will and complete and total dependance on His Spirit we will not sin. Anything else no matter how nobe it may seem is tainted and unacceptable to God. This is the gist He gave us, A new life that can walk in the Spirit and not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.
i do understand Jesus died for my sins before i was born.how good is that.now that,s love.do you know how Jesus said defeating the evil one,is this reference to us in knowledge,or knowledge that Jesus has us and evil can,t take us away?
