When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came forward to Him, appealing to Him, ‘Lord, my servant is lying paralysed at home, suffering terribly.’ – Slide 1
And Jesus said to him, ‘I will come and heal him.’ <br/>But the centurion replied, ‘Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof, but only say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I too am a man 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 servant, “Do this,” and he does it.’ – Slide 2
When Jesus heard this, He marvelled and said to those who followed him, ‘Truly, I tell you, with no one in Israel have I found such faith. I tell you, many will come from east and west and recline at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ – Slide 3
And to the centurion Jesus said, ‘Go; let it be done for you as you have believed.’ And the servant was healed at that very moment. – Slide 4
