Who Was Pontius Pilate?

Oct 22, 2019

Pontius Pilate will forever be remembered for his role in the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. This new display about Pontius Pilate features a replica of what has become known as the Pilate stone. Excavated in Israel in 1961, the real stone provided the first archaeological confirmation of Pilate's existence and his role as Prefect of Judea. Also on display are two real bronze coins that were minted in 29 and 30 AD under Pilate's authority.
