Who Was Pontius Pilate?

    Pontius Pilate was the Governor (Procurator) of Judea from 26-36 AD. He was the successor to Valerius Gratus. He was the fifth Governor of Judea. He was a very merciless man. He was married to Claudia Procula. Many Christians believe that after he had Jesus executed (See Major Events) he became a Christian himself. He died in 38  AD by throwing himself in the Tiber river. There is a tomb there to this day to remember him by.
