The latest ADL national telephone survey, of 1,200 adults, was conducted this month and has a margin of error of about 3 percent. The results were released Thursday.

The percentage of respondents who believe that Jews are responsible for the death of Jesus was 26 percent, down from 31 percent in 2011.


Even though it's down from 31%, that's still 1/4 of Americans. Questions for Christians on this board. What exactly are you taught about who killed Jesus? Not trying to insinuate anything, just a genuine question. My assumption is that it's generally the Pharisee leaders and Pilate, but that somehow translates to Jews for many Americans.

Well, it was requested by Jewish Pharisees but carried out by Roman soldiers, so...it's debatable who takes more of the blame. It's definitely shared, though.

That's not surprising, but still disappointing. I'd like to see how the questions were worded, but I don't seem to see those in the link.

Not Christian anymore, but I was raised that way. In a nutshell, Sunday school taught me that the Sanhedrin found Jesus guilty of blasphemy, brought him before Pilate, who sent him to Herod. Herod didn't care, sent him back to Pilate, who tried his level best not to execute Jesus, but eventually relented to the will of the crowd.

At the time, if asked 'Did the Jews kill Jesus' I would have answered no. Though the Sanhedrin and the crowd were Jewish, I didn't really relate them with Jews in general, and didn't consider them as representative of Judaism as a religion or a people. Also, if I'd have got into the technicalities, despite Pilate's reluctance, Jesus was still executed under Roman authority.

While some Jewish authoritarians might have been miffed about Jesus, the account given in the Gospels is clearly meant to besmear the non-Christian Jews.

Who killed Jesus? The Romans.

100%

Nobody else.


Who is responsible for the death of Jesus? The Romans.

99%

Maybe some others.
