kmart you said alot earlier in the post that the jews wanted jesus dead but the romans did it. yes the romans did it because jesus commanded
Pilate that it must be done.
6As soon as the chief priests and their officials saw him, they shouted, "Crucify! Crucify!"
But Pilate answered, "You take him and crucify him. As for me, I find no basis for a charge against him."
7The Jews insisted, "We have a law, and according to that law he must die, because he claimed to be the Son of God."
8When Pilate heard this, he was even more afraid, 9and he went back inside the palace. "Where do you come from?" he asked Jesus, but Jesus gave him no answer. 10"Do you refuse to speak to me?" Pilate said. "Don't you realize I have power either to free you or to crucify you?"
11Jesus answered, "You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin."
12From then on, Pilate tried to set Jesus free, but the Jews kept shouting, "If you let this man go, you are no friend of Caesar. Anyone who claims to be a king opposes Caesar."
13When Pilate heard this, he brought Jesus out and sat down on the judge's seat at a place known as the Stone Pavement (which in Aramaic is Gabbatha). 14It was the day of Preparation of Passover Week, about the sixth hour.
"Here is your king," Pilate said to the Jews.
15But they shouted, "Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!"
"Shall I crucify your king?" Pilate asked.
"We have no king but Caesar," the chief priests answered.
16Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified.
In the words of Christ himself it was the jews who handed him over that were guilty of the greatest sin.
Pilate believe Jesus.
19Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read:|sc JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS. 20Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. 21The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, "Do not write 'The King of the Jews,' but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews."
22Pilate answered, "What I have written, I have written."
The Paradosis of Pilate say that before his death pilate was a Christian that beleived in christ.
From the paradosis of Pilate, chapters 8-10
Caesar questioned Pilate, and commanded an officer called Albius to behead him, saying.
"As this man raised his hand against the righteous man called Christ, so shall he fall the same war, and find no deliverance." And when Pilate came to the place of execution. He prayed silently. "Lord, do not distroy me with the wicked Hebrews, for it was through the lawless Nation of the jews that I raised my hand against you, because they plotted a revolt against me. You know that I acted in ignorance. therefore do not condemn me because of thsi sin, but pardon me, Lord and your servant Procla, who stands with me in this hour of my death, whom you made to prophesy that you must be nailed to the crossss. do not condemn her also because of my sin, but pardon us and a number among your rightious ones" And behold, when Pilate has finished his prayer, there sounded a voice from heaven, "All generations and families of the gentiles shall call you blessed, because in your governorship all was fulfilled which the prophets foretold about me.

Church tradition tells us that when John, son of Zebadee and brother of James was an old man, his disciples would carry him to church in their arms.
He would simply say, “Little children, love one another”
After a time his disciples wearied at always hearing these same words and asked “Master why do you always say this?
He replied, “it is the Lords command, and if done, it is enough”
