What Does INRI on a Crucifix Mean?


Dear Brother Ron

I've been told that "INRI" is an ACRONYM that stands for "I'm Nailed Right In!"
Please tell me that this cannot possibly be true!!!

Lady Kikyo


Dear Lady Kikyo

Actually, it stands for Iesu Nazari Rex Iudea. This means "Jesus of Nazareth, king of the Jews". The Roman alphabet did not include the letter J. In translating the Bible into English, the translators substituted J for the the original Greek letter Iota.

This refers to John 19:19 "And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS".

Your friend was trying to be funny. He failed miserably.

Best always
Brother Ron
