So, Pilate asked Him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" And Jesus answered him, "You have said so."
I [solemnly] urge you in the presence of God, who gives life to everything, and of Christ Jesus, who made the good confession when He testified in front of Pontius Pilate [See John 18:37; Matt. 27:17],
Now Jesus stood in front of the governor [i.e., Pilate], who asked Him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" Jesus answered him, "You have said so."
There was an inscription above Him [i.e., on the upright portion of the cross], stating, "This is the king of the Jews."
Then they went [up] to Him and said, "Hey! King of the Jews!" and struck Him [in the face with their hands].
This 'Christ, the king of Israel,' let him now come down from the cross so we can see it and believe in him." And the thieves who were being crucified with Him also spoke abusively to Him.
He will be great and will be called the Son of the Highest [i.e., God], and the Lord will give Him the throne of His forefather King David.
They were saying, 'May the King who comes in the name [i.e., by the authority] of the Lord, be blessed. May there be peace in heaven and praise [to God] in the highest [i.e., may this praise reach to the highest heaven].'
So, they all asked [Him], "Then are you the Son of God?" And He answered them, "You [are right to] say that I am [the Christ]."
Nathaniel replied to Him, "Rabbi [i.e., Teacher], you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel."
So, Pilate went back into his headquarters and called for Jesus. He said to Him, "Are you the King of the Jews?"
Then Pilate had an inscription written and placed on the cross [i.e., on the upright portion, above His head]. It read, "Jesus from Nazareth, the King of the Jews."
