Step into the Story: Surprise EndingAdrian Holloway on July 5, 2015 with 0 Comments
As Jesus dies on the cross, the curtain that symbolically separated God from people in the Jewish temple was torn in two from top to bottom (vs38) and the surprise ending to Mark’s gospel is that the first person to go in is… a pagan, a Roman Centurion (vs39), who probably knew almost nothing about the life of Jesus. Do you think you’re too bad a person to become a Christian? How bad are you? Do you kill people for a living? If so, the good news is that you can be forgiven. You can come in like this centurion did.
