INRI (Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews)
The letters “INRI” are initials for the Latin title that Pontius Pilate had written over the head of Jesus Christ on the cross (John 19:19). Latin was the official language of the Roman Empire.
The words were "Iesvs Nazarenvs Rex Ivdaeorvm." The English translation is "Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews."
