Most of the time when I see a crucifix it has a plaque with the letters INRI on it. What do they mean?
Those letters are what is known as the titulus, and stands for “Iesus Nazarenus, Rex Iudaeorum”. In English it means, “Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews.”
We can see in all four Gospels that Pilate had an inscription placed above the head of Christ in the cross. In John we see the exact wording that gives us these initials:
Pilate also wrote a title and put it on the cross; it read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.”
