Pilate addressed Jesus using at least the three appellations: "the Man," "Christ," and "King."
Here are the relevant passages (there are others):
Matthew 27:17b: “[Pilate] said to them, 'Whom do you want me to release for you? Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?'" (emphasis added).
Note Pilate's words (he seems to be trying to demonstrate Jesus is a mere man unworthy of death):
John 19:5: "When Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe, Pilate said to them, 'Here is the man!'"
After the crowd demanded Barabbas instead of Jesus, once again:
Matthew 27:22: "Pilate said to them, 'Then what shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?'"
Pilate appears to have continued to pleas for Christ's freedom:
John 19:14b-15: "And he said to the Jews, 'Behold, your King!'."
Is there any symbolism in these identifications? In other words, is there anything analogous to, say, "Prophet", "Priest", "King" (as with Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel: a prince of Israel)?
Note that I am not asking why Pilate used the terms that he did, only whether there is any symbolism — as there is with the name "Bar-abbas" (son of the father).
