Editorial Reviews

From the Author

It grew from a single thought, a spark of desire to know what lay behindthe mysterious phrase, "But Pilate's wife had dreamed of Jesus, and sent him a warning."

Who was this mysterious woman, who felt sostrongly about the Nazarene that she broke protocol and sent a messageto her husband pleading with him not to condemn the prisoner? What wasthe nature of her dream? Who was she, and what did she know of theMessiah?

The woman legend calls Claudia Procula is as much anenigma as the reference in scripture, for that is the only proof of herexistence. Aside from early church speculations, nothing is known abouther past, presence in Judea, or ultimate end. There is also,surprisingly, a lack of information about her husband, Pontius Pilate.Other than a half dozen cryptic references to him in the New Testament,the only other mention of his fate is found in the first centurywritings of the historian Josephus, who records several of Pilate'scrimes in Judea and also that he was removed from office because ofrepeat attacks against the Jewish nation.

I was left with a very small amount of historical material and vast opportunity forconjecture, taking in to consideration the folklore surrounding bothPilate and his wife. Some believe Claudia was Jewish, but given Pilate's well-documented anti-Semitism, it's unlikely he would have married aJew. Others stand by the claim that she was an illegitimate daughter ofthe emperor Tiberius. This is equally unlikely due to the historicalrecords following the line of emperors. It's certain that Claudia was of noble bearings. That's all I know. The rest, I made up... or did I?You'll have to do your own research to find out.

There are asmany myths about Pilate himself, from speculation that he was a son ofSejanus to a soldier whose military prowess allowed him to eventuallyobtain a position of power.

Christianity has vilified him forcenturies, painting him with many different brushes. There is therelentless, cruel Pilate of early church theology; the foolish and weakPilate portrayed in passion plays; and the empathetic, reluctant Pilateof more recent works. It's my hope that "my" Pilate you will see as many things... as a husband, a lover, a Roman, a Governor, and in the end,someone whose life was changed significantly through the same Messiahwho has so profoundly changed mine.
