Jesus finished saying all those things to the people. Then he entered Capernaum.
There the servant of a Roman commander was sick and about to die. His master thought highly of him.
The commander heard about Jesus. So he sent some elders of the Jews to him. He told them to ask Jesus to come and heal his servant.
They came to Jesus and begged him, "This man deserves to have you do this.
He loves our nation and has built our synagogue."
So Jesus went with them. When Jesus came near the house, the Roman commander sent friends to him. He told them to say, "Lord, don't trouble yourself. I am not good enough to have you come into my house.
