Matthew 27:11

Context
Jesus and Pilate

27:11 Then 1  Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, 2  “Are you the king 3  of the Jews?” Jesus 4  said, “You say so.” 5 

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

2 tn Grk “asked him, saying.” The participle λέγων (legwn) is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated.

3 snAre you the king of the Jews?” Pilate was interested in this charge because of its political implications of sedition against Rome.

4 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

5 sn The reply “You say so” is somewhat enigmatic, like Jesus’ earlier reply to the Jewish leadership in 26:64.
