Road built by biblical villain uncovered in Jerusalem
Pontius Pilate is a man many Jews and Christians love to hate. For Christians, the Roman governor of Judaea played a central role in the execution of Jesus around A.D. 30, while for Jews he was a callous ruler who set the stage for the rebellion that led to the destruction of Jerusalem four decades later.

But a new discovery suggests that Pilate also spent a good deal of time and money embellishing the famous city that drew Jewish pilgrims as well as visitors from around the Roman Empire.

Archaeologists tunneling beneath a Palestinian neighborhood just south of Jerusalem’s walls are uncovering a monumental stepped street that led to the foot of the Temple Mount, the sacred platform that once held the Jewish Temple and now is home to some of Islam’s holiest sites. ...

Definition of controversy: "A dispute, especially a public one, between sides holding opposing views." So what are the opposing views from experts *today* about Pilate? I see none in your paste.

I'm sure the Jews were conflicted about him back then, but that's not what I'm asking.

Neil, for modern controversies about Pontius Pilate read the article, for earlier ones, e.g.,
JFB Biblical Commentary wrote:
19-22. Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross .¬†.¬†. Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews .¬†.¬†. and it was written in Hebrew‚ÄĒor Syro-Chaldaic, the language of the country.
¬† ¬† ¬† and Greek‚ÄĒthe current language.
¬† ¬† ¬† and Latin‚ÄĒthe official language. These were the chief languages of the earth, and this secured that all spectators should be able to read it. Stung by this, the Jewish ecclesiastics entreat that it may be so altered as to express, not His real dignity, but His false claim to it. But Pilate thought he had yielded quite enough to them; and having intended expressly to spite and insult them by this title, for having got him to act against his own sense of justice, he peremptorily refused them. And thus, amidst the conflicting passions of men, was proclaimed, in the chief tongues of mankind, from the Cross itself and in circumstances which threw upon it a lurid yet grand light, the truth which drew the Magi to His manger, and will yet be owned by all the world!

What's controversial about Pilate? I've never heard a historian argue he was a nice, principled guy.

Fortunately for Christians, as it turned out, Cato the Younger didn't govern Judea instead, for he was famously incorruptible and hated tyranny. Jesus would've been exonerated, and we would all be without hope!

Speaking of Pontius Pilate, don't you think it would be biblical for someone to sell a brand of hand soap with his name on it?
Instead, we have a series of core exercises called 'Pilates' but based on a different guy who created them when he was in prison.

Just a reminder that the ‚ÄúPalestine‚Äôs‚ÄĚ were originally Cretes (Europeans) who invaded the Jewish, God given land. Later the Arabs invaded them (Ottoman Empire) nothing Holy from Islam was ever in Israel. The only reason they want that land is to destroy the Jew. And the only reason the region is named Palestine is because some evil leader so hated the Jews, just to be evil he named their land after the Jews known enemy the ‚Äúphilistines‚ÄĚ aka today‚Äôs Palestine‚ÄĚ if history interests you check out this link..

Pontius Pilate remains controversial even into the modern day, but perhaps not for religious reasons. An interesting article itself, which I think Christians and Jews would find informative and not controversial.
