Pontius Pilate in History and Interpretationby Helen K. Bond
Pub. Date: 10/20/2004
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This study reconstructs the life of Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor responsible for the execution of Jesus. The first section provides the historical and archaeological background. The following chapters go on to look at six first century authors: Philo, Josephus and the four gospel writers. Each chapter asks how Pilate is being used as a literary character in each work, why each author describes Pilate in a different way, and what this tells us about the relationships between each author and the Roman state.
