Luke 7:1-6 GW

1 When Jesus had finished everything he wanted to say to the people, he went to Capernaum.
2 There a Roman army officer's valuable slave was sick and near death.
3 The officer had heard about Jesus and sent some Jewish leaders to him. They were to ask Jesus to come and save the servant's life.
4 They came to Jesus and begged, "He deserves your help.
5 He loves our people and built our synagogue at his own expense."
6 Jesus went with them. He was not far from the house when the officer sent friends to tell Jesus, "Sir, don't bother. I don't deserve to have you come into my house.
