Q. What do we know about Pilate’s wife? The Gospel of Matthew tells us that she warned him not to harm Jesus. Do you think she might have been considering a conversion at that time?
A. As you note, the Gospel says: “While he [Pilate] was still seated on the bench, his wife sent him a message, ‘Have nothing to do with that righteous man. I suffered much in a dream today because of him’” (Matthew 27:19).
