John the Baptist: “Major Player On the Palestinian Stage”

 

Special to Global News Centre

In fact, Roman law prohibited capital punishment at the hands of local courts such as those of the Jews.  Capital punishment in any case had been made virtually impossible according Jewish law, which required that the two witnesses see each other, that the witnesses warn the perpetrator, etc.—all making it almost impossible that that Jews would have wanted to actually go through with an execution.  Under Roman rule, Jews themselves, without Pilate, without the Romans, would never have been permitted to carry on capital punishment of anybody.
