Bible: Matthew 8:4-13
Healing the Centurion’s Servant
8:5 When he entered Capernaum, 5 a centurion 6 came to him asking for help: 7 8:6 “Lord, 8 my servant 9 is lying at home paralyzed, in terrible anguish.” 8:7 Jesus 10 said to him, “I will come and heal him.” 8:8 But the centurion replied, 11 “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. 12 I say to this one, ‘Go’ and he goes, 13 and to another ‘Come’ and he comes, and to my slave 14 ‘Do this’ and he does it.” 15 8:10 When 16 Jesus heard this he was amazed and said to those who followed him, “I tell you the truth, 17 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 18 with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob 19 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.” 20 8:13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go; just as you believed, it will be done for you.” And the servant 21 was healed at that hour.
