- Here is the story of the centurion who sent people to the Lord Jesus
Christ to heal his servant. He did not feel worthy for the Lord Jesus to
come under his roof but he had such faith that he believed that all Jesus
had to do was to say the word, no matter what distance He was from the
Centurion’s home and his servant would be healed. Jesus saw this as great
faith and because of that faith, Jesus had healed his servant from a
distance. In verse 10 we read a very important part to the narrative which
is found in the last phrase, “that had been sick.” The modern versions omit
this phrase and therefore reduce the visible effect of both the miracle of
healing Jesus did and the faith that the centurion had in Christ. The whole
essence of this narrative is the faith of the Centurion and the deity of
Christ showing through with the ability to heal at a distance. The modern
versions leave out the fact that the servant was previously sick and it just
makes the verse look like he was well when visitors came to him. The whole
idea was that Christ had healed him and those who saw him, saw that he was
well and they knew that he was previously ill. Once again the modern
versions rob the Lord Jesus Christ of glory for his divine healing of the
