As YAHSHUA went into Capernaum, a centurion came up to Him, begging Him, and saying, Lord, my servant boy is lying at the house paralyzed and distressed with intense pains. And YAHSHUA said to him, I will come and restore him. But the centurion replied to Him, Lord, I am not worthy or fit to have You come under my roof; but only speak the word, and my servant boy will be cured, for I also am a man subject to authority, with soldiers subject to me. And I say to one, Go and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my slave, Do this and he does it. When YAHSHUA heard him, He marveled and said to those who followed Him, I tell you truly, I have not found so much faith as this with anyone, even in Israel… Then to the centurion YAHSHUA said, Go; it shall be done for you as you have believed. And the servant boy was restored to health at that very moment (Matt. 8:5-10,13). A centurion was a man of great distinction by their courage and skill in battle. They were captains over 100 soldiers. A centurion started as a soldier working his way up the ranks. Their good conduct and truthfulness were in general the causes for their promotion to the command of a centurion.
