Emperor Julian of Rome professed Christianity in his early years of power but later turned savagely against Christians and vowed to exterminate them. One day as a Roman soldier was whipping a Christian, Julian the Apostate, as he became known, said, ’ Where is your Carpenter of Nazareth now?’ The Christian replied; ’He is driving nails into your coffin, O Emperor.’ This seemed an accurate answer, for Julian was mortally wounded in battle. He is reported to have clutched some of his blood, thrown it into the sky, and said; ’Thou has conquered, O Galilean.’
