The Confession of the Centurion — Tissot


This artwork by Tissot shows the Roman centurion Longinus kneeling, with his face bowed to the ground and his lance cast down, adoring the Crucified Jesus and professing his faith in the divinity of the Savior.

"And the centurion who stood over against him, seeing that crying out in this manner he had given up the ghost, said: 'Indeed this man was the son of God.' " — Mark 15:39
