Pilate asked Him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" Jesus answered him, "You have said so."
"Where is the one who was born to be king of the Jews? For we saw a star [signifying his birth while we were still] in the east, and have come here to worship him."
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."
Pilate answered them, "Do you want me to release to you the king of the Jews [i.e., Jesus]?"
[So], Pilate again asked them, "Then what shall I do to this one you call the king of the Jews?"
Then they began "greeting" Him with "Hey, king of the Jews "
The inscription, stating the charge against Him, was attached above His head [i.e., to the upright portion of the cross]. It read, "The king of the Jews."
They began bringing accusations against Him, saying, "We discovered this man misleading the people of our nation and telling them not to pay taxes to Caesar, and claiming that he himself was the Messiah, a king!"
So, Pilate went outside to them and asked, "What charge do you bring against this man?"
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."
