    be crucified for

    Is the following sentences acceptable?

    Owing to I see that Jesus had been betrayed by Judas, but he was still crucified for Judas. Though the lesson is involved and abstruse, Iím willing to learn.

    Re: be crucified for

    I'm sorry - the green parts of the sentence don't really make sense to me; I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to say, so it's hard to help:

    Owing to I see that Jesus had been betrayed by Judas, but he was still crucified for Judas.

    Re: be crucified for

    It's making a point, I believe, that even though Judas was His betrayer, Jesus was sacrificed for all of mankind (which includes Judas).

    "Owing to I see that" is awkward. "Owing to" can mean "because of the fact that" but using it right up against another expression "I see that" makes it confusing.
