Matthew 27:37

His accusation (thn aitian autou). The title (titlo, John 19:19 ) or placard of the crime (the inscription, e epigraph) which was carried before the victim or hung around his neck as he walked to execution was now placed above (ep anw) the head of Jesus on the projecting piece (crux immuru). This inscription gave the name and home, Jesus of Nazareth, and the charge on which he was convicted, the King of the Jews and the identification, This is. The four reports all give the charge and vary in the others. The inscription in full was: This is Jesus of Nazareth the King of the Jews. The three languages are mentioned only by John ( John 19:20 ), Latin for law, Hebrew (Aramaic) for the Jews, Greek for everybody. The accusation (charge, cause, aitia) correctly told the facts of the condemnation.
