  5. Mark’s gospel really strikes at the heart of the Empire in its climax of treasonous statement of the Roman Centurion when he says
    “Truly this was the SON OF GOD” Back then Caesar’s name on the Roman coin was – SON OF GOD. It represented conquest, rule, violence, might makes right, inequality ..etc…

    Jesus represents humility, love, non violence, equality, etc.. so the Centurion’s confession was a paradigm shift of amazing magnitude.
