Now when the centurion, who stood facing him, saw that in this way he* breathed his last, he said, ‘Truly this man was God’s Son!’ – from Mark 15:33-41 The Death of Jesus.
I am reading Amazon.com: Seven: The Deadly Sins and the Beatitudes: Jeff Cook: Books
In this book the author pairs each of the Deadly Sins with one of the Beatitudes. Chapter 6 contrasts wrath and being a peacemaker. The author describes how at the death of Jesus on the cross one of the Roman soldiers acknowledged that Jesus was the Son of God and that this was one of the titles claimed by Caeser. This illustrates the vast difference bewteen wrath and peacemaking. I had never noticed it before but the testimony of the soldier that Jeus was the Son of God; that is a very profound testimony especially considering the source.
