Context Readings

A Centurion's Slave Healed

8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou should come under my roof; but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. 9 "For I also 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." 10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled and said to those that followed, Verily I say unto you that not even in Israel have I found such faith.
