Who cruicified Jesus?Why Did The Roman Empire Fall?

The Jews crucified Jesus through the Romans. At the time of Jesus' crucifixion, the Romans had conquered all the area in which Jesus lived and taught. The Romans allowed the Jews to continue with their Sanhedrin (their government), but the Romans took away capital punishment from the Jews. In order to have Jesus crucified, the Jewish leaders had to manipulate Rome into doing it. First, the Jewish leaders had to lie - make up charges (Lk. 23: 2, 3). The Jewish leaders persisted in their demands for crucifixion (vss. 5-19). New Testament writers charged the Jews with having crucified Jesus (Acts 2: 36, 3: 13-17).

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Like the Chinese dynasties from ancient times, I have a little study on it, the rise of the dynasties usually coincide with a great ruler who is able to galvantise his people and army. Once the kingdom/dynasty is established, then the period of complacent will set in. This usually happens, at least in the chinese dynasties, with the subsequent rulers. As they say, one era will be worse than the previous. It just deteriorate to the point, whereby either the people or most of the cases, enemy forces conquer and took over. The cycle will continue again.

There's really no single reason why the Roman Empire fell apart. Two major reasons I can think of are the incompetent emperors and the Germanic invaders.

Interesting post because all of us had only heard about the roman empire but maybe dont know how this great empire maybe the greatest empire of all the human history could fall down after dominate almost all the world. Maybe I have another theories about the fall of the roman empire:1. There are a lot of evidences of disalignment in the roman army because some generals where thinking in their own interest if the empire falls. A lot of important people of Rome was rewarded in some or another way with the fall of the empire.2. I have heard another documentaries where say that the emperors ate their food in plumb plates and it is demostrated by the science that the plumb damage the brain functions of thinking and reality and maybe this suspected madness combined with all the vices of the emperors could be one of the reasons of the end of the empire.3. The barbarians. All civilization have their enemies and actually we can see this in the fight between the capitalism society with the comunism or almost comunist countries like Rusia. The main feature of this people who is against the developed civilization in all the human history is their perseverance generation by generation and the incredible hate that they can develop against the dominating civilization. The barbarians had defeat by defeat in almost a millenium but they never surrender and at the end they had their victory.4. The empire system. I am totally agree with all my friends that maybe this type of government was useless to contain all the problems that Rome had in those times. Maybe a little democracy or a capable dictator could contain all this problems but the hereditary system was completely useless.5. Cristianity. I am cristian but I have to admit that all the religions had some type of danger to the human develop because all we know the history of heaven and SION but we all are here in the earth and we have to do something with our lives and the cristianity maybe make the people lazy and the people dont have any type of superation spirit in their lives, they only are waiting for the dead and that is not correct. We can be religious but no lazy.At the end I think that all the empires had to fall some day but it?s incredible how some great empires like the roman empire fell down when I imagine that it those days maybe that?s looked imposible.Great topic and bye.

At the end I think that all the empires had to fall some day but it´s incredible how some great empires like the roman empire fell down when I imagine that it those days maybe that´s looked imposible.

Great topic and bye.


I have to start by saying "please don't spell Christian wrong." Christianity is the name of the religion because it deals directly with Christ. I apologize if this offends you but I can't stand people who claim to be part of a religion and don't even know how to spell the name of their main savior correctly. It shows you don't care enough about the religion and just make false claims. Others may claim otherwise but in religions it's one thing I can't tolerate. It irritates me beyond belief. It's like not knowing how to spell your parents' names right, or your own for that matter.

Other than that, I liked the rest of your post. It has some interesting information in it!

Hello,My college professor asked us if we agree or disagree with this phrase. "Caesar killed the Republic" He said to explain why we agree or disagree. Im having a hard time figuring this out and I was wondering if you guys could help since you know a lot about this topic. Thank You

That's really informing. Thank you for that.

 

Just a thought, it might be the case when an empire grows bigger to the extend it gets out of control, then it falls.

 

From the little history that I know:

the fall of Abbasid empire

the fall of Ottoman empire

the fall of British empire
