Who killed Jesus? Who plunged the spear into His side, finally
ending His life, after hours of inhumane torture? Jesus Killer
is the story of the driven and disciplined Roman centurion,
Deuterius, whose life changed dramatically on that historic day
on Golgotha Hill.
Jesus Killer reveals the physical, mental, and spiritual journey
of the man responsible for the event that changed the course of
humanity forever. He could have never predicted how one simple
day at work, and one man he did not even know, could change his
life forever. Could you?
A former Vietnam veteran and police officer from Texas, John H. Edwards has always been a devout Christian and aspiring writer. After many years of teaching high school law enforcement courses, John discovered a large malignant tumor inside his left lung. The difficult chemotherapy forced his early retirement from education but began his foray into the field of historical fiction. Inspired by God, his first novel, Jesus Killer: A Centurion’s Mission is the story of the Roman centurion who said, “Surely, this was the Son of God.” Though his battle with cancer continues, John's faith, family, friends, and determination have helped him to realize that God is not finished with him yet!
