NET © Notes

tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated.

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.

tn Grk “was written.”
