When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!”
That the Jews do not believe that Jesus is the Messiah, is at best a half-truth. When people who watch the crucifixion of the Lord, saw what happened on the Mount of Olives and in Jerusalem, they were convinced that they were dealing with God him self. And not only Jews believed. The centurion was a Roman officer. He was the first gentile believer in the Jewish Messiah, the Son of God.
