1 Reviewen
This book explores the diverse portraits of Pontius PIlate in the Gospels. Pontius Pilate focuses on reading the Gospels not only as personal religious text but also as narratives shaped by their sociopolitical contexts. It identifies aspects of Roman imperial power that is assumed by each Gospel's presentation of Pilate, the Roman governor. It analyzes each Gospel's critical attitude to the empire and outlines how that Gospel shapes Christian discipleship in a world dominated by Roman power.
