Bible Miracles: The Pilate Inscription

The Pilate Inscription stone
The pilot inscription found by Italian archaeologists led by Dr. Antonio Frova while excavating in the area of an ancient theatre built by decree of Herod the Great around 22–10 BC, along with the entire city of Caesarea. Archaeologists uncovered a stone that is a damaged block 82* 65 cm of carved limestone with a somewhat unimpaired writing attributed to, and mentioning, Pontius Pilate, a prefect of the Roman province of Judaea from 26-36AD.  That Pilate is mentioned in the New Testament Gospel accounts on many occasions as in John 18:29

So Pilate came out to them and asked, “What charges are you bringing against this man?

This finding verifies the New Testament statement that Pilate was the prefect of Judea. This proves that the Bible is a historically accurate book ever penned and hundreds of ancient discoveries verify its accuracy.

The Pilate stone is present nowadays at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. Plaster cast replicas can be seen at the Archaeological Museum in Milan, Italy, and in Caesarea Maritima itself.
