Healing of Centurian's servant (Capernaum)
|MAT 8:1 And when He had come down from the
mountain, great multitudes followed Him.
MAT 8:5 ¶ And when He had entered Capernaum, a
centurion came to Him, entreating Him,
MAT 8:8 But the centurion answered and said, "Lord, I am not worthy for You to
come under my roof, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed.
|LUK 7:1 When He had completed all His discourse
in the hearing of the people, He went to Capernaum.
LUK 7:2 ¶ And a certain centurion's slave, who was highly regarded by him, was sick and about to die.
LUK 7:3 And when he heard about Jesus, he sent some Jewish elders asking Him to come and save the life of his slave.
LUK 7:4 And when they had come to Jesus, they earnestly entreated Him, saying, "He is worthy for You to grant this to him;
LUK 7:5 for he loves our nation, and it was he who built us our synagogue. "
LUK 7:6 Now Jesus started on His way with them; and when He was already not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to Him, "Lord, do not trouble Yourself further, for I am not worthy for You to come under my roof;
LUK 7:7 for this reason I did not even consider myself worthy to come to You, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed.
LUK 7:8 "For I, too, am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, 'Go!' and he goes; and to another, 'Come!' and he comes; and to my slave, 'Do this!' and he does it."
LUK 7:9 Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled at him, and turned and said to the multitude that was following Him, "I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith."
LUK 7:10 And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave in good health.

MAT 11:4 And Jesus answered and said to them, "Go and report to John what you hear
MAT 11:9 "But why did you go out? To see a prophet? Yes, I say to you, and one who
is more than a prophet.
|LUK 7:18 ¶ And the disciples of John reported to
him about all these things.

LUK 7:22 And He answered and said to them, "Go and report to John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the poor have the gospel preached to them.
LUK 7:23 "And blessed is he who keeps from stumbling over Me."
LUK 7:24 ¶ And when the messengers of John had left, He began to speak to the multitudes about John, "What did you go out into the wilderness to look at? A reed shaken by the wind?
LUK 7:25 "But what did you go out to see? A man dressed in soft clothing? Behold, those who are splendidly clothed and live in luxury are found in royal palaces.
LUK 7:26 "But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and one who is more than a prophet.
LUK 7:27 "This is the one about whom it is written, 'Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You.'
LUK 7:28 "I say to you, among those born of women, there is no one greater than John; yet he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he."
LUK 7:29 And when all the people and the tax-gatherers heard this, they acknowledged
God's justice, having been baptized with the baptism of John.
