Petronius: The Roman Centurion Who Guarded Messiah’s Tomb Was a Believer

Featured | Featured: Scripture

19 And Pilate gave them Petronius the centurion with soldiers to guard the tomb. And with them came elders and scribes to the sepulcher and having rolled a great stone together with the centurion and the soldiers, they all together who were there set it at the door of the sepulcher; and they affixed seven seals, and they pitched a tent there and guarded it.

Besorah Kepha [The Gospel of Peter] 19

A CURIOUS thing happened on the way to the tomb. Kepha thought to name the centurion, and why do you suppose that is? I have a thought or two on the matter and I’m curious what yours might be. I’ve made it all the way to verse 19 in my line-for-line commentary on BESORAH KEPHA, or The Gospel of Peter, and I have a lot to say on this Petronius fellow. I don’t believe his mention is a one-off. He arrives in other places. Wouldn’t you like to know which ones? You can catch up with the conversation in verse 19 or read the entire report in the PDF file, which is offered on the Archives page. Finding it for yourself is the easy part. All you have to do is purchase a $5 All-Access Pass to TUC. I put a lot of work into my research and appreciation the support.
