  • If the first word of Christ on the cross is interpreted, with reference to the executioners that led to his crucifixion, in key of Lutheran divine omniscience and absence of alternative possibilities, it takes place an apparent contradiction related to moral responsibility and duty of those: How to sustain its moral responsibility if they did not have alternative possibilities, and if apparently they did not know what they were doing, and how ascribing duties that they could not fulfill? This can be solved from a semi-compatibilist perspective, and, so, answer that: 1) the absence of alternative possibilities and ignorance do not exclude that the perpetrators can be held morally responsible for the crucifixion of Christ, and 2) failure to comply with certain duties does not exclude the executioners from having such duties and being considered morally responsible for their failure.
