Luke 23:38

Context
23:38 There was also an inscription 1  over him, “This is the king of the Jews.”

1 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.
