Matthew 27:27 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Mockery by the Soldiers. 27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus inside the praetorium[a] and gathered the whole cohort around him.

Footnotes:

  1. 27:27 The praetorium: the residence of the Roman governor. His usual place of residence was at Caesarea Maritima on the Mediterranean coast, but he went to Jerusalem during the great feasts, when the influx of pilgrims posed the danger of a nationalistic riot. It is disputed whether the praetorium in Jerusalem was the old palace of Herod in the west of the city or the fortress of Antonia northwest of the temple area. The whole cohort: normally six hundred soldiers.
