Something Unusual

It was absolute and utter chaos.

The chanting of massive crowds in the streets. There was a thick hatred in the air. Rumors were spreading wildly throughout the surrounding towns.

One man shouted, “They put a tangle of thorns on the man’s head!”

Camilla, the daughter of a centurion, knew exactly what was happening. She grabbed a few things and rushed out of the house. She had to find her father, who was on duty that day.

She ran through the streets before coming to a sudden stop in front of the Praetorium. Chants thundered all around — “Hail! King of the Jews! Hail! King of the Jews!”

Camilla spotted her father. He was yelling at a man to carry a rugged cross up the road. Her father was assigned by Pilate to lead an execution squad. She knew he didn’t have a choice, but it was still unbearable to see.

Then something very unusual happened. It was in the afternoon, the sky grew dark and a loud voice traveled through the air.

“It is finished!” declared a few men passing by.

Camilla finally reached her father. He was surprised to see her, but meant it when he said,

This man truly was the Son of God.

***

On the third day, this man rose again. (Matthew 28:1-6)

He’s coming back. (Acts 1:9-11)

His name is Jesus. (John 14:6)
