In 2018, archaeologists deciphered the inscription on an ancient ring. They discovered that it belonged to Pontius Pilate – the man who was the Roman governor of Judaea at the time of Jesus. The ring had actually been found fifty years ago, but they have only just deciphered it.

In Luke's account - and the other accounts in the Bible - Pontius Pilate was the governor who had Jesus put to death.

In 1961, Italian archaeologists excavating the theatre at Caesarea found a stone inscription with Pontius Pilate's name.

Coins have also been found dating from his rule as governor. The Roman historian Tacitus and the Jewish historian Josephus also wrote about him.

So there is no doubt that Pilate was a real person. This is confirmed by the evidence of the inscription, the ring, and the coins.
