1980: Lent and Pilate’s Wife

St. Matthew Lutheran Church was hosting a series called "Voices of the Passion," and one of the installments was Pilate’s wife, called here, as she is in tradition, Claudia Procula.

(Note that this is tradition, not canon. I could talk about the critical difference between the two but you’d all be bored half to death.)

Pontius Pilate’s wife has only one sentence in the New Testament (Matthew 27:19), as is noted in the Wikipedia article about her: 

While Pilate was sitting in the judgment hall, his wife sent him a message: "Have nothing to do with that innocent man, because in a dream last night, I suffered much on account of him."
