Bible: Matt 8:5-13

Healing the Centurion’s Servant

8:5 When he entered Capernaum, 1  a centurion 2  came to him asking for help: 3  8:6 Lord, 4  my servant 5  is lying at home paralyzed, in terrible anguish.” 8:7 Jesus 6  said to him, “I will come and heal him.” 8:8 But the centurion replied, 7 Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof. Instead, just say the word and my servant will be healed. 8:9 For I too am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. 8  I say to this one, ‘Goand he goes, 9  and to another ‘Comeand he comes, and to my slave 10 Do thisand he does it.” 11  8:10 When 12  Jesus heard this he was amazed and said to those who followed him, “I tell you the truth, 13  I have not found such faith in anyone in Israel! 8:11 I tell you, many will come from the east and west to share the banquet 14  with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob 15  in the kingdom of heaven, 8:12 but the sons of the kingdom will be thrown out into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” 16  8:13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go; just as you believed, it will be done for you.” And the servant 17  was healed at that hour.
