The True Meaning if the Inscription INRI Written on Jesus' Cross

As Christians are approaching Good Friday, which is meant to commemorate the crucifixion and death of Jesus, it is important to learn the meaning of the words on top of the cross.

When Jesus died, the letters INRI were written and put at the top of the cross. Jesus was hailed by many. As his fame grew, the local authority was concerned. These concerns began right after His birth. When Herod heard that a King greater than him had been born, he ordered the murder of all male young borns in a plot to kill Jesus.

The abbreviation INRI stands for Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum. This is a Latin sentence that translates to Jesus of Nazareth The King of The Jews. One and the major reason why Jesus was killed was because he called himself the King of the Jews. Now, were these words a mockery because the same people who killed Him are the same people who wrote the words?
