There is much that can be said about this passage, but I think this Matt Papa video says it well.

  1. John 19
    9 He went into the palace again and asked Jesus, “Where are you from?” But Jesus didn’t answer him. 10 So Pilate said to Jesus, “Aren’t you going to answer me? Don’t you know that I have the authority to free you or to crucify you?”
    11 Jesus answered Pilate, “You wouldn’t have any authority over me if it hadn’t been given to you from above. That’s why the man who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.”

    17 He carried his own cross and went out of the city to a location called The Skull. (In Hebrew this place is called.) 18 The soldiers crucified Jesus and two other men there. Jesus was in the middle. 19 Pilate wrote a notice and put it on the cross. The notice read, “Jesus from Nazareth, the king of the Jews.”
    20 Many Jews read this notice, because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city. The notice was written in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek. 21 The chief priests of the Jewish people told Pilate, “Don’t write, ‘The king of the Jews!’ Instead, write, ‘He said that he is the king of the Jews.’ ”
    22 Pilate replied, “I have written what I’ve written.”

    Interesting: vs20b The notice was written in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek.

    38 Later Joseph from the city of Arimathea asked Pilate to let him remove Jesus’ body. (Joseph was a disciple of Jesus but secretly because he was afraid of the Jews). Pilate gave him permission to remove Jesus’ body. So Joseph removed it.

    41 A garden was located in the place where Jesus was crucified. In that garden was a new tomb in which no one had yet been placed.
    42 Joseph and Nicodemus put Jesus in that tomb, since that day was the Jewish day of preparation and since the tomb was nearby.
