And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.
And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,
And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.
Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.
Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band,
And as they went about to kill him, tidings came unto the chief captain of the band, that all Jerusalem was in an uproar.
