In our last lesson we witnessed the mockery and shame that came from being crucified. After taking his last breath, the centurion confesses that Jesus truly was the Son of God (15:39). We learn that some of the disciples of Jesus were watching these events unfold from a distance. Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joses, and Salome were there along with other women. They became followers of Jesus in Galilee and came with him to Jerusalem when Jesus and his apostles came. The women are witnesses to the death of Jesus.
