Jesus Heals a Centurion's Servant

1 When R322 He had completed all His discourse in the hearing of the people, He R323 went to Capernaum.

2 And a centurion's slave, who F156 was highly regarded by him, was sick and about to die. 3 When he heard about Jesus, he R324 sent some Jewish F157 elders asking Him to come and save F158 the life of his slave. 4 When they came to Jesus, they earnestly implored Him, saying, "He is worthy for You to grant this to him; 5 for he loves our nation and it was he who built us our synagogue." 6 Now Jesus started on His way with them; and when He was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to Him, "Lord, F159 do not trouble Yourself further, for I am not worthy for You to come under my roof; 7 for this reason I did not even consider myself worthy to come to You, but just say F160 the word, and my servant F161 will be healed. 8 "For I also am a man placed 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." 9 Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled at him, and turned and said to the crowd that was following Him, "I say to you, not R325 even in Israel have I found such great faith." 10 When those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave in good health.

11 Soon afterwards He went to a city called Nain; and His disciples were going along with Him, accompanied F162 by a large crowd. 12 Now as He approached the gate of the city, a F163 dead man was being carried out, the only F164 son of his mother, and she was a widow; and a sizeable crowd from the city was with her. 13 When the R326 Lord saw her, He felt compassion for her, and said to her, "Do F165 not weep." 14 And He came up and touched the coffin; and the bearers came to a halt. And He said, "Young man, I say to you, arise!" 15 The dead F166 man sat up and began to speak. And Jesus gave him back to his mother. 16 Fear R327 gripped them all, and they began glorifying R328 God, saying, "A great prophet R329 has arisen among us!" and, "God has visited F167 His people!" 17 This R330 report concerning Him went out all over Judea and in all the surrounding district.

A Deputation from John

18 The R331 disciples of John reported to him about all these things. 19 Summoning two F168 of his disciples, John sent them to the R332 Lord, saying, "Are You the Expected F169 One, or do we look for someone else?" 20 When the men came to Him, they said, "John the Baptist has sent us to You, to ask, `Are You the Expected F170 One, or do we look for someone else?' " 21 At that very F171 time He cured R333 many people of diseases and afflictions R334 and evil spirits; and He gave sight to many who were blind. 22 And He answered and said to them, "Go and report to John what you have seen and heard: the BLIND R335 RECEIVE SIGHT, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the POOR R336 HAVE THE GOSPEL PREACHED TO THEM. 23 "Blessed is he who F172 does not take offense at Me."

24 When the messengers of John had left, He began to speak to the crowds about John, "What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? 25 "But F173 what did you go out to see? A man dressed in soft clothing? F174 Those who are splendidly clothed and live in luxury are found in royal palaces! 26 "But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and one who is more than a prophet. 27 "This is the one about whom it is written, `BEHOLD R337 , I SEND MY MESSENGER AHEAD F175 OF YOU, WHO WILL PREPARE YOUR WAY BEFORE YOU.' 28 "I say to you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John; yet he who is least F176 in the kingdom of God is greater than he." 29 When all the people and the tax collectors heard this, they acknowledged F177 God's R338 justice, having R339 been baptized with the R340 baptism of John. 30 But the Pharisees and the lawyers R341 F178 rejected God's purpose for themselves, not having been baptized by John. F179

31 "To what then shall I compare the men of this generation, and what are they like? 32 "They are like children who sit in the market place and call to one another, and they say, `We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not weep.' 33 "For John the Baptist has come eating R342 no bread and drinking no wine, and you say, `He has a demon!' 34 "The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, `Behold, a gluttonous man and a drunkard, F180 a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' F181 35 "Yet wisdom is R343 vindicated by all her children."

36 Now one of the Pharisees was requesting Him to dine F182 with him, and He entered the Pharisee's house and reclined at the table. 37 And R344 there was a woman in the city who was a sinner; F183 and when she learned that He was reclining at the table in the Pharisee's house, she brought an alabaster vial of perfume, 38 and standing behind Him at His feet, weeping, she began to wet His feet with her tears, and kept wiping them with the hair of her head, and kissing His feet and anointing them with the perfume. 39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he said to himself, "If this man were a R345 prophet He would know who and what sort of person this woman is who is touching Him, that she is a sinner." F184

Parable of Two Debtors

40 And Jesus answered him, "Simon, I have something to say to you." And he replied, F185 "Say it, Teacher." 41 "A moneylender had two debtors: one owed five hundred denarii, R346 F186 and the other fifty. 42 "When they were R347 unable to repay, he graciously forgave them both. So which of them will love him more?" 43 Simon answered and said, "I suppose the one whom he forgave more." And He said to him, "You have judged correctly." 44 Turning toward the woman, He said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave R348 Me no water for My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45 "You gave R349 Me no kiss; but she, since the time I came in, has not ceased to kiss My feet. 46 "You R350 did not anoint My head with oil, but she anointed My feet with perfume. 47 "For this reason I say to you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little." 48 Then He said to her, "Your R351 sins have been forgiven." 49 Those who were reclining at the table with Him began to say to F187 themselves, "Who R352 is this man who even forgives sins?" 50 And He said to the woman, "Your R353 faith has saved you; go R354 in peace."
