Bible: Luke 7:1-10
Healing the Centurion’s Slave
7:1 After Jesus 1 had finished teaching all this to the people, 2 he entered Capernaum. 3 7:2 A centurion 4 there 5 had a slave 6 who was highly regarded, 7 but who was sick and at the point of death. 7:3 When the centurion 8 heard 9 about Jesus, he sent some Jewish elders 10 to him, asking him to come 11 and heal his slave. 7:4 When 12 they came 13 to Jesus, they urged 14 him earnestly, 15 “He is worthy 16 to have you do this for him, 7:5 because he loves our nation, 17 and even 18 built our synagogue.” 19 7:6 So 20 Jesus went with them. When 21 he was not far from the house, the centurion 22 sent friends to say to him, “Lord, do not trouble yourself, 23 for I am not worthy 24 to have you come under my roof. 7:7 That is why 25 I did not presume 26 to come to you. Instead, say the word, and my servant must be healed. 27 7:8 For I too am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me. 28 I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes, 29 and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” 30 7:9 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed 31 at him. He turned and said to the crowd that followed him, “I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith!” 32 7:10 So 33 when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave 34 well.
