2 And a centurion’s slave, 1who was highly regarded by him, was sick and about to die.
6 Now Jesus started on His way with them; and when He was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to Him, “1Lord, do not trouble Yourself further, for I am not worthy for You to come under my roof;
9 Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled at him, and turned and said to the crowd that was following Him, “I say to you, anot even in Israel have I found such great faith.”
11 Soon afterwards He went to a city called Nain; and His disciples were going along with Him, 1accompanied by a large crowd.
15 The 1dead man sat up and began to speak. And Jesus gave him back to his mother.
17 aThis report concerning Him went out all over Judea and in all the surrounding district.
18 aThe disciples of John reported to him about all these things.
20 When the men came to Him, they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to You, to ask, ‘Are You the 1Expected One, or do we look for someone else?’ ”
22 And He answered and said to them, “Go and report to John what you have seen and heard: the ablind receive sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the bpoor have the gospel preached to them.
23 “Blessed is he 1who does not take offense at Me.”
Who will prepare Your way before You.’
28 “I say to you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John; yet he who is 1least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.”
33 “For John the Baptist has come aeating no bread and drinking no wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon!’
35 “Yet wisdom ais vindicated by all her children.”
36 Now one of the Pharisees was requesting Him to 1dine with him, and He entered the Pharisee’s house and reclined at the table.
39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were aa prophet He would know who and what sort of person this woman is who is touching Him, that she is a 1sinner.”
40 And Jesus answered him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” And he 1replied, “Say it, Teacher.”
42 “When they awere unable to repay, he graciously forgave them both. So which of them will love him more?”
44 Turning toward the woman, He said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you agave Me no water for My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.
45 “You agave Me no kiss; but she, since the time I came in, has not ceased to kiss My feet.
46 “aYou did not anoint My head with oil, but she anointed My feet with perfume.
48 Then He said to her, “aYour sins have been forgiven.”
