Who is to blame for the death of Jesus???

In my grow group a few weeks ago we were talking about how the Jews are still getting blamed for the death of Jesus.  Then the question came up of whether or not the Romans are really to  be blamed.  The real question is should anyone really be blamed?

We tend to think of death as a terrible and tragic thing even when we know the good news of heaven.  Yes, it is a painful and grueling that Jesus went through on the cross, I am not trying to make light of it in any way.  

We must always remember that Jesus is alive.  He did die on the cross, and he certainly did not deserve death by any means.  Jesus died so that we can have eternal life in heaven, what does blame have to do with any of it?
