The Healing of the Centurion’s Servant – Picture

The Healing of the Centurion’s Servant.
As Jesus was traveling about from city to city, He entered into a city called Capernaum where there was a centurion who was looking for him. A centurion was a commander over a hundred soldiers in the Roman army. He was looking for Jesus because he had a servant who was very dear to him and the servant was so sick that he was going to die. When the centurion heard about Jesus healing people who were sick, he sent word to the elders and pleaded with them to ask Jesus to come and heal his sick servant.
The elders went to Jesus in a hurry and asked Him to heal the centurion’s servant because the centurion was different than other officers in the Roman army. This centurion loved the Jewish nation and had even built a synagogue! The elders said that the centurion was worthy of his request.
So, Jesus went with them to the centurion’s house, but when Jesus was not far from the house, the centurion sent his friends to Jesus to tell Him not to trouble himself by going into the house. He said that he did not think he was worthy to come to Jesus himself, but to just say the word and his servant would be healed. The centurion believed that Jesus did not even need to see his servant to heal him, but that Jesus’ words could heal his servant. The centurion said that he was also a man who had men under his authority who obeyed his commands. He could tell a soldier to come and he would come, or tell him to go and he would go. The centurion said these things because he believed that Jesus did not even need to touch his servant to heal him, but only say a word and Jesus’ will would be done
