Solomon Zeitlin, שְׁלֹמֹה צײטלין, Шломо Цейтлин Shlomo Cejtlin (Tseitlin, Tseytlin) (28 May 1886 or 31 May 1892, in Chashniki, Vitebsk Governorate (now in Vitebsk Region) – 28 December 1976, in United States) was a Jewish historian.

Who Crucified Jesus and The impact of the Crucification on Christian civilization, world history and the Jewish people. Over the centuries, this controversial question has troubled the world and has been a source of dispute and debate. And, throughout the ages, the Jewish people, unjustly accused of deicide, has carried the burden of the Crucifixion. Dr. Zeitlin refutes this accusation with authoritative and well documented arguments. In a lucid, objective presentation of legal and historical evidence, this illuminating book makes it clear that the Jews were not responsible for the death of Jesus. The crucifixion is discussed in terms of its centrality in Christian civilization, its meaning for world history, and its impact on the Jewish people.

the writer did his research
I did similar research on my own previously and he did got the facts right ...
there are a few things that I would explain a little differently
the differences are mostly from the perspectives we have had in our own lives
I would recommend this for any truth seekers who can benefit from having a new look at things

In his introduction to his book, “Who Crucified Jesus?” Solomon Zeitlin wrote, “I have demonstrated that the Jews are guiltless and cannot be blamed for the crucifixion.”

It is certainly true that “the Jews” cannot be blamed for the crucifixion. Collective guilt is not a Christian doctrine. When in Matthew 27:25 the Jewish mob told Pontius Pilate, “His blood be on us, and on our children,” the author of the Matthew did not agree. Neither did any writer of the New Testament, nor any Christian written about in the New Testament.

Crucifixion was a Roman means of execution. Only the Romans had the authority to crucify anyone. The Jewish legal authority was the Sanhedrin. The Sanhedrin had the authority to have people executed. Their method was stoning.

Of all the slanders thrown at the Jews during their tragic, but ultimately triumphant history there is none as vile as the charge of deicide. The Jews are innocent. Rome is guilty. If we avenge the crucifixion by dropping an atomic bomb on Rome, most of the people we kill will be Christians.

Nevertheless, it is not quite true that no Jews were complicit. Jesus was a Jewish holy man. As a Christian I believe he was much more. Nevertheless, non Christians who agree that Jesus did live will agree with me on that. In addition, many of Jesus’ followers believed that Jesus was a descendant of King David, and the rightful king of Judea, Samaria, and Galilee.

In II Samuel 7:16 the prophet Nathan speaks for Yahweh when he tells David, “And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee. Thy throne shall be established forever.”

King David’s dynasty officially ended with the Babylonian Captivity, which began in 597 B.C. Nevertheless devout Jews never accepted a king who could not claim descent from David. They rejected the Hasmonean Dynasty, even though it was founded by a leader of the successful Jewish uprising against the Seleucids. This was the Maccabean Uprising, which ended in 129 B.C.

Devout Jews certainly rejected the dynasty established by Herod the Great. Herod practiced Judaism, and rebuilt the Second Temple of Jerusalem. This was probably the most impressive religious edifice in the Roman Empire. Roman generals commissioned sacrifices to Yahweh at Herod’s Temple to bless the Roman Empire. Nevertheless, Herod was a tyrant, and a quisling of Rome.

So, who felt threatened by Jesus? Well Rome, obviously. At the time Jesus was arrested hundreds of thousands of Jews longed for a scion of David who would lead them in a successful revolt against Rome, and restore the Dynasty of David.

Mark 15:7 says, “And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.”

This insurrection is not mentioned elsewhere in the New Testament. Nevertheless, it seems to have happened shortly before Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem before the Passover, when crowds greeted him saying (Mark 11:10) “Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.”

The Romans had already experienced one insurrection. They did not want another. The land of the Jews was not itself a significant source of taxes and resources. Nevertheless, it was close to the Parthian Empire, which was an occasional enemy of Rome. The Parthian Empire consisted of what is now Iran and Iraq. If Judea, Samaria, and Galilee became allies of the Parthian Empire the Parthians could threaten much the rest of the Roman Empire.

Who among the Jews would have felt threatened by Jesus? Well, the Herodians would have. These were Jews who supported the dynasty of Herod.

Then there were the Sadducees. These were rich Jews who served as priests in Herod’s Temple, and who derived much of their wealth from sacrifices given at the Temple. To the Sadducees Jesus represented an alternate way of practicing Judaism, a way not dependent on animal sacrifices. The Sadducees only recognized the Torah as divinely inspired. The Torah included the first five books of the Old Testament: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.

Refusing to recognize the sacredness of the books that followed in the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Old Testament was a political decision by the Sadducees. Mention of King David, his eternal throne, and predictions of the Messiah were what followed. The doctrine of the Messiah was subversive. Jews who benefitted from the Roman rule, and Jews who thought a revolt was bound to fail, rejected the doctrine of the Messiah.

When Solomon Zeitlin absolves the Jews of deicide he is addressing a jury that has already been convinced. Christian anti Semitism hardly exists anymore. Evangelical Christians, who might have been anti Semitic in the past, see the existence of Israel as evidence that the Second Coming of Jesus is imminent. Their support for the state of Israel easily segues into appreciation of the Jews in general.

Secular anti Semites are usually hostile to Christianity, so they don’t care who crucified Jesus. Adolf Hitler, whom many of them admire, spoke for them when he said in private to associates, “The heaviest blow which ever struck humanity was Christianity; Bolshevism is Christianity’s Illegitimate child. Both are inventions of the Jew.”

Just as Jews have been slandered by the charge of deicide, so have Christians been slandered by the lie that the man who ordered the execution of six million of the people of Jesus was a Christian.
