I think it fair to say that Jesus was crucified by the Jews and not the Romans. Did not Pilate call for a bowl of water and wash his hands? Herod could find no fault in him either, but the Sanhedrin did and so Jesus was handed over to the Jews with Roman soldiers in control. That’s pretty basic but I think you’ll get the idea; now my questions are,
2) Why did the execution take place on a Friday?
3) Why did Joseph of Arimathea (one of the Sanhedrin) supply the tomb?
