NET © Notes

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

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

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

tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

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