Easter: The Centurion's story
A dramatic monologue describing Jesus' death on the cross
Note: Please be aware that some of the themes in this film are only suitable for older children and teenagers. We recommend that teachers watch it first before sharing the film with students.
The Bible says that Jesus died by being crucified by the Romans, that is, being nailed to a cross and left to die. The gospels quote a Roman soldier - known as a centurion - who watched Jesus die. He said, "Surely this man was the Son of God.’
This film is based on that story. You can read about it in the Bible in Luke 23: 26-49.
