Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.”
And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.”
The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

Aww, that's so cool!
Always loved that story about the centurion who came to see Jesus - even the Gentiles sought His help, and they were answered. :aww:

''Everybody.... EVERYBODY is welcome at my father's table! rich, poor, masters, servants...the children of abraham and the pagans!''

~ Jesus, in the 1977 film ''Jesus of Nazareth''.

I love the history of Romans, but not one story is as touching as this one!
Where a gentile commander, such as this Roman centurion, recognizes Jesus' authority and in faith says all these things! I absolutely love it! :love:

I think that far more is implied than meets the eye; the centurion most probably attempted all other ways of healing (pagan priests, Roman doctors etc.) before going to a local faith healer from local populace - Christ must have been his last-ditch effort, pointing just how far he was willing to go to get his servant (actually, a slave) healed.

Could be.
Personally I like to think that he really had a spiritual sensitivity of some sort (Romans did have their own gods in that sense), and realized the area of (authoritative) influence Jesus had around Him. :)
But in the end we don't know much about this particular centurion, so we can keep the theories humble I'd say.
