Miracles and parables

1WHEN he had finished addressing the people, he entered Capernaum.

2A centurion there had a servant whom he valued highly, but the servant was ill and near to death.

3Hearing about Jesus, he sent some Jewish elders to ask him to come and save his servant's life.

4They approached Jesus and made an urgent appeal to him: “He deserves this favour from you,” they said,

5“for he is a friend of our nation and it is he who built us our synagogue.”

6Jesus went with them; but when he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends with this message: “Do not trouble further, sir; I am not worthy to have you come under my roof,

7and that is why I did not presume to approach you in person. But say the word and my servant will be cured.

8I know, for I am myself under orders, with soldiers under me. I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; to another, ‘Come here,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

9When Jesus heard this, he was astonished, and, turning to the crowd that was following him, he said, “I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.”

10When the messengers returned to the house, they found the servant in good health.

11Afterwards Jesus went to a town called Nain, accompanied by his disciples and a large crowd.

12As he approached the gate of the town he met a funeral. The dead man was the only son of his widowed mother; and many of the townspeople were there with her.

13When the Lord saw her his heart went out to her, and he said, “Do not weep.”

14He stepped forward and laid his hand on the bier; and the bearers halted. Then he spoke: “Young man, I tell you to get up.”

15The dead man sat up and began to speak; and Jesus restored him to his mother.

16Everyone was filled with awe and praised God. “A great prophet has arisen among us,” they said; “God has shown his care for his people.”

17The story of what he had done spread through the whole of Judaea and all the region around.

18When John was informed of all this by his disciples,

19he summoned two of them and sent them to the Lord with this question: “Are you the one who is to come, or are we to expect someone else?”

20The men made their way to Jesus and said, “John the Baptist has sent us to ask you, ‘Are you the one who is to come, or are we to expect someone else?’”

21There and then he healed many sufferers from diseases, plagues, and evil spirits; and on many blind people he bestowed sight.

22Then he gave them this answer: “Go and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind regain their sight, the lame walk, lepers are made clean, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life, the poor are brought good news --

23and happy is he who does not find me an obstacle to faith.”

24After John's messengers had left, Jesus began to speak about him to the crowds: “What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed swaying in the wind?

25No? Then what did you go out to see? A man dressed in finery? Grand clothes and luxury are to be found in palaces.

26But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes indeed, and far more than a prophet.

27He is the man of whom scripture says, Here is my herald, whom I send ahead of you, and he will prepare your way before you.

28“I tell you, among all who have been born, no one has been greater than John; yet the least in the kingdom of God is greater than he is.”

29When they heard him, all the people, including the tax-collectors, acknowledged the goodness of God, for they had accepted John's baptism;

30but the Pharisees and lawyers, who had refused his baptism, rejected God's purpose for themselves.

31“How can I describe the people of this generation? What are they like?

32They are like children sitting in the market-place and calling to each other, We piped for you and you would not dance. We lamented, and you would not mourn.

33“For John the Baptist came, neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, ‘He is possessed.’

34The Son of Man came, eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look at him! A glutton and a drinker, a friend of tax-collectors and sinners!’

35And yet God's wisdom is proved right by all who are her children.”

36One of the Pharisees invited Jesus to a meal; he went to the Pharisee's house and took his place at table.

37A woman who was living an immoral life in the town had learned that Jesus was a guest in the Pharisee's house and had brought oil of myrrh in a small flask.

38She took her place behind him, by his feet, weeping. His feet were wet with her tears and she wiped them with her hair, kissing them and anointing them with the myrrh.

39When his host the Pharisee saw this he said to himself, “If this man were a real prophet, he would know who this woman is who is touching him, and what a bad character she is.”

40Jesus took him up: “Simon,” he said, “I have something to say to you.” “What is it, Teacher?” he asked.

41“Two men were in debt to a moneylender: one owed him five hundred silver pieces, the other fifty.

42As they did not have the means to pay he cancelled both debts. Now, which will love him more?”

43Simon replied, “I should think the one that was let off more.” “You are right,” said Jesus.

44Then turning to the woman, he said to Simon, “You see this woman? I came to your house: you provided no water for my feet; but this woman has made my feet wet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.

45You gave me no kiss; but she has been kissing my feet ever since I came in.

46You did not anoint my head with oil; but she has anointed my feet with myrrh.

47So, I tell you, her great love proves that her many sins have been forgiven; where little has been forgiven, little love is shown.”

48Then he said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”

49The other guests began to ask themselves, “Who is this, that he can forgive sins?”

50But he said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”
