Pontius Pilate’s Inscription

Post image for Pontius Pilate’s Inscription

This inscription—found in Caesarea—confirms Pontius Pilate’s historical existence. It describes him as “Prefect of Judaea.”1

I found this image in Logos Bible Software when I logged in tonight. I thought I’d share!

The report on the Pilate inscription has been around for some time. Amazing how the skeptics totally ignore those finds which so undo their doubts. Being a person who has studied and taught history, I have found the Bible to be true in its historical recordings. In places where it cannot be checked or awaits later discoveries, it has, in the light of past finds, proven to be a reliable work. Having studied the Bible from the perspective of its ideas, intellectualism, and having found how they work to enable and empower a believer to become balanced, flexible, creative, constant, and magnetic, in short, mature personality, the best argument for the Christian Faith after transformation by salvation, I am impressed by the unlimited depths of wisdom that are encapsulated in its teachings.

Thanks for furthering the implications of finding Pilate’s inscription as it relates to the reliability of the Bible.

This inscription is found in manuscripts from the same era the skeptics ignore:
“For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.” Rom. 2:13
Do you think this inscription is a true or false statement?

Mark,

You may be interested in this as well – I have bought a few things from this guy – but not the Pilate Inscription reproduction because it is $495.00AUD plus shipping (the 3rd one down).

I bought the Ketef Hinnon (Silver Scoll – Gabriel Barkay) for one of my best friends as he left to become Senior Pastor in Michigan. It is a reasonable price at $69.95AUD and is easy to frame. One has hung on my wall for quite some time . . .
