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.

Every Palm Sunday our church had palm for each family. WE would bring ours home and display them above the Last Supper picture until Ash Wednesday. I carried that tradition on until our church cut out have palms.

That sounds like a great tradition, Helen. Thanks for sharing that memory.

3. How would you describe Pontius Pilate? What did he look like?

As much as I very much like, and have seen many times, the "Jesus" movie put out by Campus Crusade for Christ and the 1959 Ben Hur movie , I'm disappointed that they portrayed Pontius Pilate as somewhat over weight and not looking like a soldier. I picture him looking more like a soldier, as in the 2016 Ben Hur movie or the way David Kitz looks in the picture above.

I'm honored to read that comment. It put a smile on my face. I agree that I see Pontius Pilate as a slim man with an active mind.

2. Always went to church especially on Palm Sunday and were always given a palm leaf, would carry them proudly as we walked home along the highway.

Please enter my name,

Julie, you are not only entered, you're a winner. Keep waving your palm/banner for the Lord.

Thank you for sending me this awesome story. I have posted my review on Amazon, DeeperShopping, Christian Books and on my blog at

The Soldier Who Killed a King, by David Kitz, gives the reader a look into what it may have been like for the soldier who crucified Jesus. This is such a powerful story. The author has used Bible Scripture to bring us this story.

This story is told to us by Marcus, a Roman centurion who was responsible for keeping order on the streets during the Passion week. Marcus witnessed the people waving palm branches when Jesus entered the city and saw how the crowd changed as the week progressed.

Marcus was looking forward to charging Barabbas for being the ring leader behind all the theft, vandalism and murder of soldiers. He typically did not enjoy taking part in crucifixions, but Barabbas was different. As the day moves on, Barabbas is released and Jesus is put on the cross to die. The reader is able to see how this affected Marcus for being forced to take part in Jesus' death. We see how the people responded to Jesus' death and resurrection.

This is a great story to read, to prepare for the Easter season. It reminds the reader that Jesus was sent to earth to die for our sins so that we may have eternal life. This story is so well written is feels like I was there seeing what was happening. It was easy to forget this is one person's interpretation of what the Bible tells us. I would recommend this story to everyone to read. I received a copy of this book from the author through Book Club Network. This is my honest review.
