Why was Jesus Crucified?

DKL at asks why was Jesus Crucified? Well, on a superficial level, that’s how the Roman’s practiced capital punishment. However, after reading James E. Talmage's "Jesus the Christ," the injustice of Christ’s treatment is much more shocking than the bruitality of being scurged and crucified. Others have died in a more bruital fashion. However, no other injustice can come close to the God of Isreal being sentenced to death for blasphemy. Who, after the injustice that Christ experienced, will, at the final judgement, be able to say that Christ’s judgements are not just? We are then urged to plead for mercy from Him who was subjected to the greatest injustice(D&C 88: 6)(Alma 7: 13).
