INRI “Jesus Nazarene, King of the Jews.”

INRI  Jesus Nazarene, King of the Jews."
INRI Jesus Nazarene, King of the Jews.

I found these letters INRI at the top of these emblems of the crucifixion, which depicts the cruel empty cross. The spear which pierced His side, and the sponge on the end of a rod, which touched His precious lips, when He cried, “ I THIRST.” And the vicious thorny crown which pierced His precious head, which poured out His blood which cleanses us from our sins.INRI

INRI is an acronym of the Latin phrase

IESVS·NAZARENVS·REX·IVDÆORVM (Jesus Nazarenus, rex Judæorum),

which translates to English as “Jesus Nazarene, King of the Jews.” 

In the Gospel of John (19:19-20),  the inscription is explained:

And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. Jesus

  1. Thanks. I always wondered what the INRI text looked like spelled out in Latin. Now I know.

  2. You’re welcome God bless in Jesus

  3. You brought out the latin text, now let me help you with the Hebrew. I saw this not to long ago. But, in hebrew the letters were YHWH or better yet HWHY. That’s why that one man said, “Truely, this was the Son of God”.

    I figured I would help you since you revealed to us who Israel was. But how does Ireland and Scotland fit into this? Or are The tribes actually the European union?

  4. Do read my post on – YHYH – you will be blessed
