Daily Devotion for edification and to feed the soul during these endtimes.

Please pray before reading.

Matthew 8:5–6: And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,
6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.

Luke 7: 1–5: Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum.
2 And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die.
3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.
4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:
5 For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.

Once again it is necessary to rightly-divide the truth of God’s Word to get the complete weight of what the gospels are saying.

It has been taught by many leaders that the healing of the centurion’s servant in Matthew and Luke were one in the same event.

However, by combining the two into one, not only does the truth become perverted but, we lose some of the meaning which is for our learning. Let’s dive deep!

First, it is plain to see that the encounter with the centurion in Matthew was not in fact the same as in Luke. Beginning in Matthew we see that the centurion came to Jesus directly. However; in Luke we see that when the centurion heard of Jesus, he, “sent elders of the Jews to Him”.

Secondly to note, the encounter in Luke mentions that this “certain servant” was, “dear to him”, whereas in Matthew there is no mention of such. In Matthew we see that this servant was, “paralyzed, dreadfully tormented”, however the servant in Luke who was dear to him was, “sick and ready to die”. We have no proof they were the same servants.

More confirmation comes as we read in Luke that the Jews were begging Jesus to come (which was only religious, but also not necessary), and they mentioned he, “…was deserving, “for he loves our nation, and has built us a synagogue…” See, by the time the encounter happened in Luke the centurion had already built a rapport with the Jews, and he had their support; however, he was on his own in Matthew, thus we see was the first healing.

Luke 24:45:  Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

Then He [thoroughly] opened up their minds to understand the Scriptures

Please pass this on to anyone you feel the Spirit of God leading you to do so.
