Luke 23:37-38

Context
23:37 and saying, “If 1  you are the king of the Jews, save yourself!” 23:38 There was also an inscription 2  over him, “This is the king of the Jews.”

1 tn This is also a first class condition in the Greek text.

2 sn Mention of the inscription is an important detail, because the inscription would normally give the reason for the execution. It shows that Jesus was executed for claiming to be a king. It was also probably written with irony from the executioners’ point of view.
