If this report gets to the governor, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble."
In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar--when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, Herod tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip tetrarch of Iturea and Traconitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene--
Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices.

That day Herod and Pilate became friends--before this they had been enemies.
