Enemies of Lent – Soldiers

When Paul told the officer in charge of his flogging that he was a Roman citizen, the officer was very afraid. Roman citizens couldn’t be punished unless found guilty of a crime. When the Roman soldiers lined up to mock Jesus, they had no idea that he was the Ruler of the Universe. As we continue our series – Enemies of Lent – we will consider how the ignorance and the cruelty of the soldiers held a very important truth. “Hail, King of the Jews!” Watch how Jesus shows mercy and rules as the Prince of Peace.
