CEB 1 After Jesus finished presenting all his words among the people, he entered Capernaum. NIV 1 When Jesus had finished saying all this in the hearing of the people, he entered Capernaum. CEB 2 A centurion had a servant who was very important to him, but the servant was ill and about to die. NIV 2 There a centurion's servant, whom his master valued highly, was sick and about to die. CEB 3 When the centurion heard about Jesus, he sent some Jewish elders to Jesus to ask him to come and heal his servant. NIV 3 The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant. CEB 4 When they came to Jesus, they earnestly pleaded with Jesus.

NIV 5 because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue." CEB 6 Jesus went with them. He had almost reached the house when the centurion sent friends to say to Jesus, "Lord, don't be bothered. I don't deserve to have you come under my roof. NIV 6 So Jesus went with them. He was not far from the house when the centurion sent friends to say to him: "Lord, don't trouble yourself, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. CEB 7 In fact, I didn't even consider myself worthy to come to you. Just say the word and my servant will be healed. NIV 7 That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed. CEB 8 I'm also a man appointed under authority, with soldiers under me. I say to one, ‘Go,' and he goes, and to another, ‘Come,' and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,' and the servant does it." NIV 8 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, 'Go,' and he goes; and that one, 'Come,' and he comes. I say to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it." CEB 9 When Jesus heard these words, he was impressed with the centurion. He turned to the crowd following him and said, "I tell you, even in Israel I haven't found faith like this." NIV 9 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." CEB 10 When the centurion's friends returned to his house, they found the servant restored to health. NIV 10 Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well. CEB 11 A little later Jesus went to a city called Nain. His disciples and a great crowd traveled with him. NIV 11 Soon afterward, Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went along with him. CEB 12 As he approached the city gate, a dead man was being carried out.

NIV 20 When the men came to Jesus, they said, "John the Baptist sent us to you to ask, 'Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?'

NIV 21 At that very time Jesus cured many who had diseases, sicknesses and evil spirits, and gave sight to many who were blind. CEB 22 Then he replied to John's disciples, "Go, report to John what you have seen and heard. Those who were blind are able to see. Those who were crippled now walk. People with skin diseases are cleansed. Those who were deaf now hear. Those who were dead are raised up. And good news is preached to the poor. NIV 22 So he replied to the messengers, "Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. CEB 23 Happy is anyone who doesn't stumble along the way because of me." NIV 23 Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me."

NIV 26 But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet. CEB 27 He is the one of whom it's written: Look, I'm sending my messenger before you, who will prepare your way before you. NIV 27 This is the one about whom it is written: " 'I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way before you.' CEB 28 I tell you that no greater human being has ever been born than John. Yet whoever is least in God's kingdom is greater than he." NIV 28 I tell you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John; yet the one who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he." CEB 29 Everyone who heard this, including the tax collectors, acknowledged God's justice because they had been baptized by John. NIV 29 (All the people, even the tax collectors, when they heard Jesus' words, acknowledged that God's way was right, because they had been baptized by John.

CEB 37 Meanwhile, a woman from the city, a sinner, discovered that Jesus was dining in the Pharisee's house. She brought perfumed oil in a vase made of alabaster. NIV 37 When a woman who had lived a sinful life in that town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee's house, she brought an alabaster jar of perfume, CEB 38 Standing behind him at his feet and crying, she began to wet his feet with her tears. She wiped them with her hair, kissed them, and poured the oil on them. NIV 38 and as she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears.

NIV 41 "Two men owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. CEB 42 When they couldn't pay, the lender forgave the debts of them both. Which of them will love him more?" NIV 42 Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he canceled the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?" CEB 43 Simon replied, "I suppose the one who had the largest debt canceled." Jesus said, "You have judged correctly." NIV 43 Simon replied, "I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled."

When I entered your home, you didn't give me water for my feet, but she wet my feet with tears and wiped them with her hair. NIV 44 Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.
