Writing with Momentous Meaning
Monday, August 14, 2017 by Sally Jo

Investigating Writing and the Bible

When Jesus was sentenced to be crucified, Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: JESUS OF NAZARETH, KING OF THE JEWS.

Scripture: John 19:19-22

Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, “Do not write the King of the Jews, but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews.”

Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”

Pilate needed to have sufficient reason for the execution of Jesus, and he was not above mocking the Jews. Pilate’s refusal to change the writing on the cross underscores that Jesus’ kingship is final and unalterable.

Pilate’s writing carried momentous meaning. Tweet this!
