The wife of Pilate

  • Note: If you haven’t yet listened to the podcast on Pontius Pilate, please do so now, as this will provide helpful background information so that you may better understand Claudia.
  • What was it like to relocate because of your husband’s career?
  • What was it like to move to a distant land?
  • What was it like to move where people didn’t speak your language?

The text & Claudia’s dream

  • Matthew 27:19: Besides, while he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent word to him, “Have nothing to do with that righteous man, for I have suffered much because of him today in a dream.”
  • The dream was Thursday night / Friday morning of the Passion Week.
  • Some early Christians said that her dream was sent by God to help her become a Christian.
  • Others suggested that this was a scheme of Satan to thwart the crucifixion.
  • In fact, God spoke through dreams to several other people in the course of biblical history. In particular, non-believers to whom he spoke include:
    • Pharaoh (Genesis 40-41)
    • Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 2)
    • Xerxes (Esther 6:1)
    • The list is not exhaustive; the Lord spoke to many believers and non-believers alike, though it is not easy to discern whether or to what extent he still speaks to us by this means in our time.

In later legend:

  • Orthodox saint!
  • 4th C. Acts of Pilate — more elaborate. She appears in the earlier 2nd C. literature also.
  • These documents tended to paint Christianity and Rome as relating positively. That is, they may have propaganda.
  • Could she have become a Christian? In Acts we see several upper-class women responding to the gospel, so it cannot be ruled out. Yet there is no direct evidence for this speculation.

Lessons for us

  • Learn from all the character of the Bible: major, minor; believer, non-believer; male, female…
  • Be sensitive to subtle cues God may be giving us.
  • [Repeated from Pilate lesson:] Don’t ignore your wife’s counsel. After all, women are often more spiritually attuned than men.
  • If your husband is a knucklehead, do share spiritual input. Yet make it count; be strategic:
    • The right subject.
    • The right time.
    • The right tone.
