the high priest
"are you the Christ, son of the blessed one?"
13 of 16
the question J is asked is
understood as asking J if hes the messiah, the SOG. Jesus confirms he is, "I am"

Roman Centurion
the revelation of J's identity is complete. when the centurion recognises J as Gods son, his recognition is caused by the demonstration of power that has no natural explanation
15 of 16
its no wonder that the SOG title is chief title for J in MK's gospel. this title shows J is more than a human being.
