New Defender's Study Bible Notes

19:22 What I have written. Pilate, tormented by his conscience, at this point decided the Jews had intimidated him far enough, refusing to change the title on the cross. As a partial response to what they had forced him to do, Pilate cast their charge back in their faces by officially declaring this pitiable figure dying on the cross was their king, in effect threatening that their nation would soon be like their dying king if they persisted in their malevolence against Rome and its representatives.
