Scripture records for us many of Jesus’ miracles. We get enough miracles that we can see, as Jesus pointed out to John the Baptizer’s disciples, “Go back and report to John what... More > you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor. Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me.” (Matthew 11: 4-6) The Old Testament among the prophecies gave these signs as the signs of the Promised Messiah. This book looks at the miracle known as the Healing of the Centurion's Servant. In this miracle Jesus displays that grace trumps works in salvation. What is grace and who deserves it? Do any of us deserve grace, miracles, or even salvation? Along the way, we find we know very little about the prime characters in the miracle. For instance, we only know that the servant was sick--no name, no mention of faith--yet he is the one most affected.< Less
