“When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said, ‘I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.’”
1. After finishing his teaching, where did Jesus go (1)? What was the position of a centurion and the condition of slaves in the Roman Empire? How did the centurion regard his servant and why was this commendable (2)?
2. What hope did the centurion find for his dying servant and how did he help him (3)? What was Jewish elders’ attitude toward Jesus and the centurion (4-5)? How was it possible for the centurion and elders to have such a relationship?
3. How did Jesus respond (6a)? What did the centurion realize about himself and about Jesus (6b-7a)? What did he ask Jesus (7b)? How could he have such great respect for Jesus’ word (8)?
4. Read verse 9. How did Jesus respond to the centurion’s words? What made the centurion’s faith so great? How did Jesus bless his faith (10)? What kind of faith does Jesus want you to have?
