Attorney Dola Indidis is trying to sue Emperor Tiberius, Pontius Pilate, Jewish elders and King Herod, holding they remain responsible for an illegal trial and the result, the crucifixion
Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel says it's strange if Indidis is seeking to have Jesus pardoned, noting that Jesus pardoned us.
According to The Jerusalem Post, Indidis is taking his case to the International Court of Justice, which told the Post it’s not “theoretically possible” for the court to hear the case because the court hears disputes between states.
“I'm sure that the attorney is sincere but it's frankly a waste of time,” Staver says. “All we have to do is read the accounts of the scriptures. We know He was wrongfully put to death. We know that our sins put Him on the cross and we know that he voluntarily went to die to redeem fallen humanity. That's pretty clear and we don't need a court to tell us that.”
