The assumable scenario to cross your mind once you hear his name is that he played a big part in Jesus’ crucifixion, some might even say he was entirely responsible for it, but who is he, really? How was his life before and after the event that would make him one of the most controversial figures in history?
Fifth governor of the Roman province of Judea, serving under Emperor Tiberius, PONTIUS PILATE,had more to him than we know. Amidst his quest to become Senator in the Roman Empire, Pilate is pushed to the wall by the teachings of a young Rabbi whose doctrines, according to the Sanhedrin, threaten to subvert the nation and have also captured the heart of his wife Claudia. As governor, he is inclined to choose between the demands of an angry mob and the life of an innocent man.
