What Have We Done?
by Wayne Blank
"Truly this was the Son of God!"
Although they are often portrayed as such, because as such many of them were, some Roman troops were not, or continued to be, like the sadistic thugs who gleefully brutalized and crucified the Son of God (see Stand Back Now, Let It Happen) and persecuted His followers thereafter. Some, like Cornelius, as described above, saw the light at some point.
Ironically, it may have been the troops who actually crucified Christ that came to realize most deeply that Christianity truly is The Way:
"And Jesus cried again with a loud voice and yielded up His Spirit." [see How Did Jesus Christ Die?]
Fact Finder: Will those "who pierced Him," meaning not just the Roman soldier who actually killed Him, but humanity as a whole, face Christ some day?
