Luke 23:1

Context
Jesus Brought Before Pilate

23:1 Then 1  the whole group of them rose up and brought Jesus 2  before Pilate. 3 

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.

2 tn Grk “him”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 sn Pilate was the Roman prefect (procurator) in charge of collecting taxes and keeping the peace. His immediate superior was the Roman governor (proconsul) of Syria, although the exact nature of this administrative relationship is unknown. Pilate’s relations with the Jews had been rocky (v. 12). Here he is especially sensitive to them.
