Pilate Wrote About Christ
By Willie Martin
There are those
who say that the Scriptures are the only record of Christ's travels on
this earth. But that is not true, it is totally false there is a historical
record of Christ and it is found in the Archoko Volume in The Congressional
Library in Washington, D.C., which contains an OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT RECORD
OF Pilate's correspondences, which records a meeting he had with Jesus
Christ. Plate stated on pages 137-139:
"To Tiberius Caesar,
Emperor of Rome Noble Sovereign, Greetings: '...Among various rumors that
came to my ears there was one in particular that came to my attention.
A young man it was said, and appeared in Galilee preaching with noble unction
a new law in the name of the God who sent him. At first I was apprehensive
that his design was to stir up the people against the Romans, but my fears
were soon dispelled.
Think now for a moment on your
own, without having some Judeo-Christian preacher tell you that this is
fantasy. What would be so strange in this? Even though this meeting is
not recorded in the Gospels, we know for a fact, that MOST of what Christ
did during His three years of public ministry was never recorded. (See
Jesus of Nazareth spoke rather
as a fried of the Romans than as a friend of the Jews. One day in passing
by the place of Siloe, where there was a great concourse of people, I observed
in the midst of the group a young man who was leaning against a tree, calmly
addressing the multitude. I was told it was Jesus. This I could easily
have suspected, so great was the difference between him and those who listened
to him. His golden colored hair and beard gave to his appearance an almost
celestial aspect. He appeared to be about thirty years of age. Never have
I seen a sweeter or more serene countenance. What a contrast between he
and his hearers with their black beards and tawny complexions!...
Never have I heard in the
words of the philosopher, any thing that can compare with the maxims of
Jesus. One of the rebellious Jews, so numerous in Jerusalem, asked Jesus
if it was lawful to give tribute to Caesar, he replied: 'Render unto Caesar
the things which belong to Caesar, and unto God the things which are God's...
I wrote to Jesus requesting
an interview with him at the praetorium and he came."
Pilate's report to Caesar
"You know that in
my veins flows the Spanish mixed with Roman blood...When the Nazarene made
his appearance, I was walking in my basilic, and my feet seemed fastened
with an iron hand to the marble pavement, and I trembled in every limb
as does a guilty culprit, though the Nazarene was as calm as innocence
itself. When he came up to me and stopped, and by a signal sign seemed
to say to me, 'I am here!' though he spoke not a word. For some time I
contemplated with admiration and awe, this extraordinary type of man, a
type unknown to our numerous painter... There was nothing about him that
was repelling in its character and I felt awed and tremulous to approach
You can accept this letter,
as I do, since it makes sense, or dismiss it as most of your preachers
and church Bible scholars will do. Think for yourself! Doesn't it make
sense to you that the Jews would try and suppress this truth, since they
were the ones who crucified Him?
Jesus, I said to him at last,
'Jesus of Nazareth, for the last three years I have granted you ample freedom
of speech (it is not recorded anywhere, either in the Gospels, or Roman
historical records, that the Romans ever attempted to suppress Christ's
ministry) nor do I regret it. Your words are those of a sage. I know not
whether you have read Socrates or Plato, but this I know, there is in your
discourse a majestic simplicity that elevates you above those philosophers...'your
blood shall not be spilled,' I said, with deep emotion, 'you are more precious
in my estimation on account of your wisdom than all the turbulent and proud
Pharisees who abuse the freedom granted them by Rome. They conspire against
Caesar, and convert his bounty into fear, impressing on the unlearned that
Caesar is a tyrant who seeks their ruin...I will protect you against them.
My praetorium shall be an asylum both day and night.'
I am your obedient servant,
And we have the testimony
of Josephus in his volumes on the history of the Jew. There are many more
documents that could be presented but if this does not suffice they would
not either, even if they were thousands of pages long.
