References for Luke 7:1

      2 There the servant of a Roman commander was sick and about to die. His master thought highly of him.
      3 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.
      4 They came to Jesus and begged him, "This man deserves to have you do this.
      5 He loves our nation and has built our synagogue."
      6 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.
      7 That is why I did not even think I was fit to come to you. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed.
      8 I myself am a man who is under authority. And I have soldiers who obey my orders. I tell this one, 'Go,' and he goes. I tell that one, 'Come,' and he comes. I say to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."
      9 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him. He turned to the crowd that was following him. He said, "I tell you, even in Israel I have not found anyone whose faith is so strong."
      10 Then the men who had been sent to Jesus returned to the house. They found that the servant was healed.
