Ancient Pontius Pilate coin from the time of the Bible discovered in Jerusalem.
This bronze Pontius Pilate coin was minted by this same Jewish governor, who ruled from Jerusalem over Judea during the years 26 to 36 AD.
Specific Biblical coins were used by Jesus to illustrate a spiritual truth while teaching His disciples. These truths are equally important for us to grasp today – handling these coins inspires that deep desire to understand the Gospel more.
The inscription on this certified authentic coin reads “Tiberias Caesar” who was the Emperor in Jesus time.
When morning came, all the chief priests and elders of the people plotted against Jesus to put Him to death. And when they had bound Him, they led Him away and delivered Him to Pontius Pilate the governor. (Matthew 27:1-2)
