Product Description

This book explores the diverse portraits of Pontius Pilate in the Gospels. Pontius Pilate Focuses on reading the Gospels not only as personal religious texts but also as narratives shaped by their sociopolitical contexts.

It identifies aspects of Roman imperial power that is assumed by each Gospel's presentation of Pilate, the Roman governor. It analyzes each Gospel's critical attitude to the empire and outlines how that Gospel shapes Christian discipleship in a world dominated by Roman power.

Publisher's Description

Pontius Pilate examines the portraits of this Roman governor found in the Gospels. Unlike most discussions of Pilate, this one takes Pilate's role as governor and representative of Roman imperial power seriously. It views Pilate predominantly as a strong, efficient, and astute governor, not as a weak and indecisive man, pressured into killing Jesus against Pilate's convictions. The conclusion considers some of the ethical and theological issues the scenes involving Pilate raise for contemporary readers. Chapters are "Would the Real Pilate Please Stand Up?" "Reading the Gospel Accounts of Pilate," "Governors and the Roman Imperial System," "Mark's Pilate," "Matthew's Pilate," "Luke's Pilate," and "John's Pilate."
