Abstract Mt 27:19, concerning Pilate’s wife, is the only canonical source for the episode developed in the Acts of Pilate II, 1. Placed at the beginning of the trial, even before Jesus’ entrance, the narrative of the dream of Pilate’s wife is just slightly modified: the dream is said to have occurred “by night”, which solves a question raised by the Christian authors. Pilate shares this message with the Jews and reminds them that his wife is “pious” and “judaizes”, which is an original element that can be linked to the Judeo-Christian context of the text. Finally, the Jews, believing him to be a sorcerer, accuse Jesus of sending the dream: this attitude is compared with other antique testimonies that may differ from or be inspired by the Acts of Pilate.
