PONTIUS PILATE INSCRIPTION Presented By Lauren Brown
Pontius Pilate was the fifth governor of Roman Judea, under whose governance Jesus of Nazareth was crucified (Matt 27:2, plus 60 additional occurrences in the gospels, Acts, and 1 Timothy). The Pilate stone inscription was found in 1961 in the ruins of an amphitheatre at Caesarea Maritima. The inscription is on a limestone block which was a dedication to Tiberius Caesar Augustus. This stone inscription is absolute proof that a man called Pontius Pilatus (Greek: Πόντιος Πιλᾶτος, Pontios Pīlātos), known in the English-speaking world as Pontius Pilate LIVED and was the fifth Prefect of the Roman province of Judaea, from AD 26--36. The Bible states he was the governor. The existence of Pontius Pilate is also confirmed by canonical gospels, the works of Philo and Josephus, a brief mention by Tacitus, and THE GOSPEL OF NICODEMUS OR ACTS OF PILATE.
