This question is one of the most profound statements found in Scriptures and uttered by the most unlikely of persons.
The New Testament names him Pontios Pilatos, or as many would recognize him, Pontius Pilate. He was the Roman prefect (governor) of Judaea under the emperor Tiberius, from 26-36 C.E.
The circumstances occurred when Yahushua the messiah was brought before Pontius Pilate by the Jewish religious leaders to exact an execution to be legally carried out by the Roman state.
The historical evidence dates this event to Abib 14, Passover day, of 30 C.E., corresponding to Thursday, April 6.
Was it possible that Pilate was capable of grasping some sense of truth from Yahushua?

Did Yahushua the messiah in fact commit blasphemy, an alleged scriptural crime whereby he was convicted and sentenced to death by the religious leaders of Judaea?
Was there actually any scriptural basis for the extreme hatred of Yahushua by these religious leaders resulting in their wanting Yahushua dead?
To those religious leaders who were eventually responsible for Yahushua’s conviction and death sentence, the messiah had this to say:
You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44)

Was the motive to murder Yahushua because he claimed to be the messiah? It seems like a reasonable question, but is it true?
Why was such extraordinary anger and hostility directed toward Yahushua the messiah by the religious leaders? What caused this hostility, resulting in the messiah’s death sentence?
Could there be another reason for Yahushua to be unlawfully murdered?
Could that “reason” have a direct connection with Yahushua using the sacred name Yahweh?
