Scene V – Miracles Of Jesus (throughout the New Testament)

Narrator:        The New Testament has abundant examples of Jesus’ healing ministry.
And while the Jewish people would have expected that healing would be provided by the Jewish Jesus to Jewish people, this was not the case.
Jew and Gentile alike benefited from the remarkable healing powers of Jesus.
One of the first to benefit from Jesus’ miraculous healings was the slave of a Roman centurion, an officer in the Roman military.


R1:                 The centurion was a Gentile, and although Gentiles saw Jews as undesirables and underlings, this was obviously not the case with this centurion, who had help finance the rebuilding of the Jewish temple. The Jewish leaders begged Jesus to go to the home of the centurion where his servant was lying on his deathbed.


R2:                 Before Jesus had reached the centurion’s house the centurion came to meet him and said: “I am not worthy to have you in my house. But I recognize in you the ability to will my slave to be healed and I have faith it shall be done!”
Jesus was overcome by the faith of the centurion and challenged the crowd of Jewish people who were standing around to have such faith.


Narrator:        Gender did not dictate who would and who would not receive a healing. In a time when females placed far lower on the social and even value ranking, Jesus gave freely and equally of his time to women. This was of importance to Jesus but a source of annoyance to the Jewish leaders.
