The MSNBC people throw a big hissy fit about it.
Besides of some things left out from the Bible, I thought this article was great. It was like reading a propaganda newspaper from Roman times, I loved it. If Jesus was crucified today it sounds exactly like what our MSM would say.
An Official Declaration Concerning the Criminal Jesus of Nazareth
Jesus of Nazareth was executed on the orders of the Roman State. Method of execution: Crucifixion. The charge under Roman law was treason, and under Herodian law blasphemy against the Temple.
The evidence against this anarchist was so strong that authorities of both the Roman State and the Kingdom of Herod concurred with the arrest and execution, and Jesus was subjected to trial by both governments. And in a rare uprising of spontaneous collective justice, the mass of people who were gathered for Passover called for his execution as well. The mob affirmed their loyalty to the state, chanting, “We have no king but Caesar.”
