In the time of Christ our god and savior this man, sent by [the] Romans, ruled in Judaea. After the crucifixion of Christ he set up an image and busts of Caesar in the sanctuary by night; but when daybreak came the Jews saw [them] and were so agitated that Pilate was frightened and took them down. And indeed, having destroyed the holy Corbanas treasury,[1] he became responsible for the insurrection and the confusion among the Jews by his hatred toward them; for when he foresaw their insurrection, he made soldiers stand before the altar itself, [the ones] inside carrying weapons but [the ones] outside [wearing] civilian clothing which raised no suspicion. When [the Jews] revolted, therefore, he deployed the soldiers against them, and some [of the soldiers] striking them with timbers and others with stones, they let some go away wounded; but they also killed some. Many of the Jews themselves were also pushed violently by one another and were trampled underfoot and killed. Their blood was mingled with the offerings.[2]
