PALACE.—In the Gospels the word is used in the text of Matthew 27:27 and John 18:28; John 18:33; John 19:9, and in the margin of Mark 15:16. In all cases it is the representative of πραιτώριον (see Praetorium), which was a term wide enough to include what would now be called a guard-room or the barrack-square adjoining (Matthew 27:27, Mark 15:16), as well as the actual place (referred to in the Johannine passages) in which a case was tried and the sentence pronounced.
