John 18:32-34 Living Bible (TLB)

32 This fulfilled Jesus’ prediction concerning the method of his execution.[a]

33 Then Pilate went back into the palace and called for Jesus to be brought to him. “Are you the King of the Jews?” he asked him.

34 “‘King’ as you use the word or as the Jews use it?” Jesus asked.[b]

Footnotes:

  1. John 18:32 prediction concerning the method of his execution. This prophecy is recorded in Matthew 20:19 and indicates his death by crucifixion, a practice under Roman law.
  2. John 18:34 “‘King’ as you use the word or as the Jews use it?” Jesus asked. An extended paraphrase of this verse would be, “Do you mean their King, or their Messiah?” If Pilate was asking as the Roman governor, he would be inquiring whether Jesus was setting up a rebel government. But the Jews were using the word King to mean their religious ruler, the Messiah. Literally, this verse reads: “Are you saying this of yourself, or did someone else say it about me?”
