He was killed in Jerusalem but by the Romans at the time but it was done after he was tried and convicted by the Jewish pharasies and they requested it to be done, so yes, basically he was. (according to bible and religious historians)
In fact the murder of Jesus was a conspiracy involving Rome, Herod, the Jewish leaders and the people of Israel, a diverse group of people who never worked together on anything before or since, but who came together this one time to plot and carry out the unthinkable-- the murder of the son of God. Ultimately, and perhaps somewhat amazingly, it was God Himself who put Jesus to death...Jesus' death on the cross secured the salvation of countless millions and provided the only way God could forgive sin without compromising His holiness and perfect righteousness. Christ's death was God's perfect plan for the eternal redemption of His own. Far from being a victory for Satan, as some have suggested, or an unnecessary tragedy, it was the most gracious act of God's goodness and mercy, the ultimate expression of the Father?s love for sinners. God put Jesus to death for our sin so that we could live in sinless righteousness before Him, a righteousness only possible because of the cross. "He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him" (2 Corinthians 5:21).gotquestions.org/respomsible-Christ-death.html
I think the few people involved in actually killing Jesus happened to be Jewish. But they were also men, so maybe we should say MAN killed Jesus. Or, we could use reason and just say the guys who nailed him to the cross did it and leave it at that. But that's no fun. Let's blame the Jewish people and all their decendants. Ya know, like Hitler did. I'm not Jewish, but I'm tired and frustrated by anyone who gets man at a "people" for what a few men did. Who cares anyway? How many people have been killed by other people throughout history? Who killed people for believing them witches or whores or scientists (anti-religion)? Why is this any more important than who killed Lincoln?

Nope- the gospel accounts of the trial of Jesus are so riddled with obvious errors related to Judaism, the legal system in Judaism and the historical record that it is obvious it is a fictional account made up after the fact. Why? Simple, the early Christians at the time the gospels were set were doing so under the Roman's. As such, they needed to find a way to shift the blame from the Roman's to elsewhere so as not to make them the villains in the religion they were trying to get them to accept.
What are these errors: The gospel account of Jesus' death is laughable when you look at the Jewishlaw (you know- the one that the Gospels state the Pharisees were so intent on keeping!) 1) A trial for a capital crime has to be heard during the day- the trial in the gospels happens at night 2) A trial for a capital crime in Jerusalem could only be heard in the Chamber of Stone in the Temple- the trial in the gospels takes place in a private home 3) A full Sanhedrin of 70 Judges heard capital crimes in Jerusalem- in the gospels only a few judges are present.
Sort of, but no. The Italians (specifically Romans) were the ones who whipped Him and crucified Him, but it was the Jews' idea. That's why the majority of modern Jews don't believe in Christ. They thought that He was a blasphemer, that's why they crucified Him. They still believe that the Messiah is still coming...which isn't the case. It's been over 2,000 years, they've waited quite a long time for, basically, nothing.
It was the Romans who crucified Jesus, but it was the Jews who handed Him over. Why? When Jesus was presented in the Temple as an infant, the prophet Simeon proclaimed that He would be "a sign that will be contradicted". Throughout His public ministry, Jesus was continually tested by the scribes and Pharisees who were seeking to find fault with Him. Once again - why? Because He challenged they to set a better example for the people. He challenged them to do more than teach God's Law; He called them to LIVE God's Law and to repent of their hypocrisy. Due to human pride and the hardness of their hearts, they hated Jesus and conspired to find an opportunity to do away with Him. Actually, Jesus was threatened with death throughout His public ministry. One such incident occurred when He returned to His home town - Nazareth - and preached in its synagogue. The Gospel tells us that the people "rose up, drove Him out of town, and led Him to the brow of the hill on which their town had been built, to hurl Him down headlong. But he passed through the midst of them and went away". (My answer continues in the comments)
