Matthew 27:37

Context
27:37 Above 1  his head they put the charge against him, 2  which read: 3  “This is Jesus, the king of the Jews.”

1 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated.

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.

3 tn Grk “was written.”
