Crucifixion was a Roman custom used on the worst malefactors and rebellious slaves. Judea was a tributary to Rome at that time. It is recorded by the Jewish historian Josephus that after the last rebellion of the Jews and the capture and razing of Jerusalem, the countryside was practically denuded of trees the Romans crucified so many.

How many people were crucified alongside Jesus?

According the the Christian gospels, two other men were crucified with Jesus. These two men are variously described as thieves, criminals or rebels. Some fundamentalist Christians interpret the Gospels so that there were four men crucified with Jesus because of the different ways in which the men are described and because they take the Bible absolutely literally. So because one gospel says two "criminals" were crucified with Jesus and another says two "thieves" were crucified with Jesus there must have been four. Most people dismiss this and interpret the gospels more sensibly as there being only two other men crucified with Jesus.
