BOOK BLURB: A stunning story of Holy Week through the eyes of a Roman centurion
Watch the triumphal entry of the donkey-riding king through the eyes of Marcus Longinus, the centurion charged with keeping the streets from erupting into open rebellion.
Look behind the scenes at the political plotting of King Herod, known as the scheming Fox for his ruthless shrewdness.
Get a front-row seat to the confrontation between the Jewish high priest Caiaphas and the Roman governor Pontius Pilate.
Understand as never before the horror of the decision to save a brutal terrorist in order to condemn the peaceful Jew to death.
If you've heard the story of Passion Week so often it's become stale, now is the time to rediscover the terrible events leading from Jesus's humble ride into the city to his crucifixion. The Soldier Who Killed a King will stun you afresh with how completely Christ's resurrection changed history, one life at a time.

I was pleased to learn that Jesus ate food in his resurrected body. That means I’ll get to enjoy eating too and not gain weight.
I can identify with that sentiment!
In rereading the story of Jesus death, I was struck once again by the fact that the first time that he replied "I am He" when he asked who they were looking for, everyone fell over. Yet, they continued on with their mission to take him for crucification. I would have thought that would have made those there pause...
Good point, Cathy.
This will be my first Easter without my Dad, but one of my cousins usually has dinner at their home for their siblings (& their siblings families) and invite Dad and me also. So, I'm hoping to get to go there after church on Easter. If I have time before then, I will make some bulka (some call it bobka) for them.
I think remembering your Dad and celebrating Jesus resurrection fit together in sad but hope-filled way. Enjoy!
I celebrate with family, egg hunts
Sounds like fun. It brings back childhood memories.
That sounds absolutely beautiful! Joy be yours this coming Resurrection Day!
Last year I missed my family time at Easter because I was 1,500 miles from home doing my "Centurion's Report" drama at a church in Calgary. But in a bit of divine humour my sons were with me, at least in name, if not in spirit. The pastor appointed two young men to be my stagehands. Their names were Tim and Josh. When they told me their names I burst out laughing. My oldest son is Tim and my youngest son is Josh. They have often been my stagehands at churches close to home. God was smiling down on me.
