Luke 23:12


That very day Herod and Pilate became friends with each other, 1  for prior to this they had been enemies. 2 


Ps 83:4-6; Mt 16:1; Ac 4:27; Re 17:13,14

NET © Notes

sn Herod and Pilate became friends with each other. It may be that Pilate’s change of heart was related to the death of his superior, Sejanus, who had a reputation for being anti-Jewish. To please his superior, Pilate may have ruled the Jews with insensitivity. Concerning Sejanus, see Philo, Embassy 24 (160-61) and Flaccus 1 (1).

tn Grk “at enmity with each other.”
