Abstract

This study proposes that an increasingly common explanation for Pilate's actions in John 19, which directly links Pilate to the equestrian prefect Lucius Aelius Sejanus, is unnecessary. While Pilate's actions were likely influenced by Sejanus's fall in AD 31, no direct connection between Pilate and Sejanus needs to exist to understand John 19.
