A closer look at a couple of texts in the book of Acts may be able to shine some light on the subject.
"...as you yourselves know — this Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men. God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it." - Acts 2:23
"...for truly in this city there were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place." - Acts 4:27
According to these texts, did God ordain and predestine the crucifixion of Jesus to take place? ? Were the men who did it held responsible? (See 2:23b). Did God coerce or force them to murder Jesus? Or is it something their wicked hearts wanted to do voluntarily? We can only surmise, then, that what men meant for evil, God meant for good. The intent and motives for the event were completely different. As such, I would propose that this is a good example of how we are to see God's involvement in evil throughout the Bible. He ordains sin sinlessly because he has an often unseen purpose which is ultimately for His glory.
