Apostle's Creed - part 4

We already learned the Apostle's Creed part 1, part 2, part 3:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary,

Now here's part 4:

suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.

(from: wikipedia - apostle's creed)

Pontius Pilate was like a governor or a mayor in Rome, and had power to make decisions for trials like a judge.
When Jesus was brought before Pontius Pilate, he allowed him to be crucified.
