According to these accounts, a Roman centurion asked Jesus for his help because his boy servant was ill. Jesus offered to go to the centurion’s house to perform a healing, but the centurion suggested that Jesus perform the healing at a distance instead, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed,” Matthew 8:8 (NIV); which he did. Jesus commented approvingly of the strong religious faith displayed by the soldier.
