  • 1 Now when He concluded all His sayings in the hearing of the people, He entered into Capernaum.
  • 2 And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear to him, was sick and ready to die.
  • 3 So when he heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to Him, pleading with Him that He would come and heal his servant.
  • 4 And when they came to Jesus, they begged Him earnestly, saying that the one whom He should do this to was deserving,
  • 5 “because, he loves our nation, and has built us a synagogue.”
  • 6 Then Jesus went with them. And when He was already not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to Him, saying to Him, “Lord, do not trouble Yourself, because, I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof.
  • 7 Therefore I did not even think myself worthy to come to You. But say the word, and my servant will be healed.
  • 8 Because, I also am a man placed under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
  • 9 When Jesus heard these words, He marveled at him, and turned around and said to the people that followed Him, “I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!”
  • 10 And those who were sent, returning to the house, found the servant well who had been sick.
  • 11 Now it happened, the day after, that He went into a city called Nain; and many of His disciples went with Him, and many people.
  • 12 And when He came near the gate of the city, behold, a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother; and she was a widow. And many people from the city were with her.
  • 13 And when the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.”
  • 14 Then He came and touched the coffin, and those who carried him stood still. And He said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.”
  • 15 So he who was dead sat up and began to speak. And He presented him to his mother.
  • 16 Then reverence came upon all, and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has risen up among us”; and, “God has visited His people.”
  • 17 And this report about Him went throughout all Judea and all the surrounding region.
  • 18 Then the disciples of John reported to him concerning all these things.
  • 19 And John, calling two of his disciples to him, sent them to Jesus, saying, “Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?”
  • 20 When the men had come to Him, they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to You, saying, ‘Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?’”
  • 21 And that very hour He cured many of their infirmities, afflictions, and evil spirits; and to many that were blind He gave sight.
  • 22 So Jesus answering said to them, “Go your way and tell John the things you have seen and heard: that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the gospel preached to them.
  • 23 And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.”
  • 24 And when the messengers of John had departed, He began to speak to the people concerning John: “What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind?
  • 25 But what did you go out to see? A man clothed in fine clothing? Indeed those who are wear fine clothes and live in luxury are in kings’ courts.
  • 26 But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and much more than a prophet.
  • 27 This is he of whom it is written: ‘Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who will prepare Your way before You.’
  • 28 Because, I say to you, among those born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than him.”
  • 29 And all the people who heard Him, even the tax collectors justified God, having been baptized with the baptism of John.
  • 30 But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the will of God regarding themselves, not having been baptized by him.
  • 31 And the Lord said, “To what then will I compare the men of this generation, and what are they like?
  • 32 They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, saying: ‘We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we mourned to you, and you did not weep.’
  • 33 Because, John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking grape juice, and you say, ‘He has a demon.’
  • 34 The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’
  • 35 But wisdom is justified by all her children.”
  • 36 Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to eat.
  • 37 And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil,
  • 38 and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil.
  • 39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he spoke within himself, saying, “This Man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what manner of woman this is who is touching Him, because she is a sinner.”
  • 40 And Jesus responded and said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” So he said, “Teacher, say it.”
  • 41 “There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty.
  • 42 And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me, therefore, which of them will love him most?”
  • 43 Simon answered and said, “I suppose the one whom he forgave more.” And He said to him, “You have rightly judged.”
  • 44 Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head.
  • 45 You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in.
  • 46 You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil.
  • 47 Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, because she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”
  • 48 Then He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”
  • 49 And those who sat at the table with Him began to say to themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”
  • 50 Then He said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you. Go in peace.”
