When Jesus came down from the hill, great crowds followed him.
Then a man with a skin disease came to Jesus. The man bowed down before him and said, "Lord, you can heal me if you will."
Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man and said, "I will. Be healed!" And immediately the man was healed from his disease.
Then Jesus said to him, "Don't tell anyone about this. But go and show yourself to the priestn and offer the gift Moses commandedn for people who are made well. This will show the people what I have done."
When Jesus entered the city of Capernaum, an army officer came to him, begging for help.
The officer said, "Lord, my servant is at home in bed. He can't move his body and is in much pain."
Jesus said to the officer, "I will go and heal him."
The officer answered, "Lord, I am not worthy for you to come into my house. You only need to command it, and my servant will be healed.
I, too, am a man under the authority of others, and I have soldiers under my command. I tell one soldier, 'Go,' and he goes. I tell another soldier, 'Come,' and he comes. I say to my servant, 'Do this,' and my servant does it.
When Jesus heard this, he was amazed. He said to those who were following him, "I tell you the truth, this is the greatest faith I have found, even in Israel.
