Abstract :
This article points up evidence by which the language of the Roman imperial cult might help make clearer what a reader of Mark's Gospel might understand when the centurion (Mark 15,39) refers to Jesus as υἱὸς θεοῦ. Knowing how an audience familiar with this cult language would react, Mark intentionally speaks of Jesus as υἱὸς θεοῦ at 1,1, as well as at 15,39.
