Responsability for Jesus’deth
In a direct sense, the death of the Godman reflected the desire of the Jews under the authority of the Roman prefect Pontius Pilate. Indirectly, those responsible for this death are all sinners, that is, all humanity since all have sinned, each person according to the measure of his own sins. The New Testament also refers to the responsibility of the devil and his angels, whom Paul called the rulers of darkness of this world, and whom he considered to bear the prime responsibility for the crucifixion of our Lord.
The merciful love of God the Father
There is another reason for the death of Jesus, one more profound and decisive than the preceding ones: the merciful love of God the Father, a love that has no why and is the why of all things. God saved sinful humanity out of pure love, because he is merciful.
The redeeming love of God the Father was shared with, and demonstrated perfectly by, the Son: “Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).
This supreme love is his, and Jesus proved it to us here, on Calvary.
