Pontius Pilate was a mediocre politician whose clumsy brutality earned Caesar's reprimands. He governed a subjugated province with a contempt which his subjects returned. Then, in the wee hours of the morning, the pompous local bigwigs and a rag-tag mob showed up at his door, demanding action. Let's take a look at what happened next:
Luk 23:3 Pilatus İsa'ya, "Sen Yahudiler'in Kralı mısın?" diye sordu. İsa, "Söylediğin gibidir" yanıtını verdi.Pilate says to Jesus "You / of the Jews/ the King / are?" "As you say, it is," Jesus replies. Pilate then tells the chief priests, "This / man in / none, not a single, not one / guilty thing / am I seeing." Just another Jewish lunatic, out of an entire crazy nation.
Luk 23:4 Pilatus, başkâhinlerle halka, "Bu adamda hiçbir suç görmüyorum" dedi.
How little did this bored Roman bureaucrat knew. Nearly 2,000 years later, his name is recited millions of times every day, around the world, whenever the followers of the still-living Jesus recite the creed that defines their faith: "He suffered under Pontius Pilate."
