katapi HOME Luke 7:1-10 - The Healing of a centurion's Servant  Lk.7.1-10 (Galilee)- Mt.8.5-13, Jn.4.43-45 | KNSB Contents | notes

7 1 After he had ended all his sayings in the hearing of the people he entered Capernaum. 7 2 Now a centurion had a slave who was dear to him, who was sick and at the point of death. 7 3 When he heard of Jesus, he sent to him elders of the Jews, asking him to come and heal his slave. 7 4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him earnestly, saying, "He is worthy to have you do this for him, 7 5 for he loves our nation, and he built us our synagogue." 7 6 And Jesus went with them. When he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying to him, "Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; 7 7 therefore I did not presume to come to you. But say the word, and let my servant be healed. 7 8 For I am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me: and I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my slave, 'Do this,' and he does it." 7 9 When Jesus heard this he marveled at him, and turned and said to the multitude that followed him, "I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith." 7 10 And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave well.
