First, because they did not want to violate the will of Christ.
And secondly, how could they not have tried, when:
Because Jesus forbade it to be done, as it is said in the Gospel of Matthew.
Jesus made it clear that he would be killed. Not because it can't avoid it, but because it's necessary to save people. And your quote is just right – Jesus went to “lay down his life for others”, only all people were his friends, and he went to death for them. Is it possible to stop someone who goes to show his love, even if out of love for him?
It is obvious to anyone who has read the Gospel that all they did was try. Pilate made the last decisive attempt, and the Jewish high priests, in principle, did not insist too much on Barabbas.
Christ was torn apart by the crowd – this is the meaning of the gospel parable, and it is for this reason that no one dared to go this way after him. Everyone sooner or later begins to think about how to escape from the crucifixion.
