As mentioned previously, the Jews believed and still continue to do so, that Jesus was an imposter and was rightly crucified. They believe that the promised Messiah is yet to come and the fact that Jesus was allowed, by God, to be crucified is proof that he was not what he claimed to be. They say that it is inconceivable for God to let His son or prophet suffer so much pain and humiliation. Even when Jesus is said to have been upon the cross and suffering such agony, the Jews continued to mock him and called out to him,
"Hail King of Jews.... save thyself and come down from the cross!" Mark 15:30.
"He saved others," they said, "but he canít save himself! Let this Christ, the King of Israel, come down from the cross, that we may see and believe." Mark 15:31.
