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 27:12 But when he was accused by the chief priests and the elders, he did not respond. 27:13 Then Pilate said to him, “Don’t you hear how many charges they are bringing against you?” 27:14 But he did not answer even one accusation, so that the governor was quite amazed.
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 sn “Are 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.
