The Centurion and the Crown of Thorns
by Chuck Antone, Jr
A fictional story about the Centurion who, at the foot of the cross, said, “Truly this was the Son of God.” As people leave the scene, the Centurion, known in this book as Marcus, stays a little longer. While he’s looking up at Jesus who is still nailed to the cross beams, a small earthquake happens. The crown of thorns falls off Jesus’ head and rolls to the feet of Marcus, where it stops.
