The beating, the crucifixion and the death of Jesus. I find it so interesting the Roman soldier that said:
When the Roman officer who stood facing him saw how he had died, he exclaimed, “This man truly was the Son of God!”(39)
It's amazing how in watching Jesus die the Roman soldier believed he was the Son of God. There is no record of Jesus speaking to the soldier. We know from other accounts of the story Jesus did speak to His mother and John. But I wonder if it was a case where the Holy Spirit spoke to the Roman soldier's heart and he just knew the truth. Not sure if I'm making sense or not. But maybe it can apply to us. In that we are called to share Jesus but it isn't our job to "save" them. It's the Holy Spirit that works in people's hearts. I may be out in right field with this, but it is something for me to think about and pray about.
What portion of the chapter jumps out at you?
