“Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.”
King James Version (KJV)
27:54 The centurion - The officer who commanded the guard; and they that were with him feared, saying, Truly this was the Son of God - Referring to the words of the chief priests and scribes, #Mt 27:43:| He said, I am the Son of God.
Mt 27:54 The centurion. The Roman officer in charge of the execution. Truly this was the Son of God. Rather, "a son of a god". He was a heathen soldier, believing in many gods, and the scenes of the cross had convinced him that Jesus was more than man.
