Bible: Luke 7:2-10

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