For those who have been following the Tell me the story of Jesus Bible study program, we will pick up where we left off. for those who are here for the Blind Faith Bible study, we will begin here ... When Jesus came down from the mountain, after He gave
the Sermon on the Mount, crowds of people followed Him.
A leper came and knelt down, bowing to Him and
said, Lord, If you're willing, you can make me clean. Jesus put out
His hand and touched him, and said, I will, be clean. Immediately the
leprosy left him and he was cleansed. Jesus told him not to tell
anyone, but to show himself to the priest and offer the gift that
Moses commanded, for a testimony to them. If you would like to read
about the gift(s) that are mentioned here, you'll find them in
As you can well imagine, if you had leprosy and you
were healed instantly by Jesus simply touching you, (and your faith)
you'd find it hard to keep quiet about it you would know the Blind Faith Bible truth. Well, so did this (former)
leper, and he went out and spread the news of it so widely that Jesus
couldn't openly come into the city anymore.
Here is a little Blind Faith Bible tidbit ... Mark has an interesting
way of describing the enthusiasm of the leper spreading the news Ö He
says, But he went out and began to publish it much, and to blaze
abroad the matter. So Jesus stayed outside the city in desert places,
and people still came to Him from all over to hear Him and be healed
Let's get into the Faith of the Centurion Bible story. Shortly after that, Jesus went to Capernaum and a
centurion (the commander of 100 soldiers in the ancient Roman army)
had a servant that was dear to him that was paralyzed and ready to
die. When he heard of Jesus, he sent the elders of the Jews to ask if
He would come and heal him. When they asked Jesus, they told Him that
the centurion was a worthy man, that he loved Israel and had built
them a synagogue.
Jesus went with them, but when He came near to the
house, the centurion sent friends out to Him saying Lord, don't go to
any trouble, I'm not worthy for you to come into my home, and I didn't
feel worthy to ask you myself, but only say the Word and my servant
will be healed. (Blind Faith Bible ingredient) I also am a man who is given authority with soldiers
under me. I say to this man, Go, and he goes, and to another, Come,
and he comes, and to my servant, Do this, and he does it.
Jesus was astonished at the Faith of the Centurion and He turned around and told
the people who were following Him, Truly I say to you, I haven't found
such great faith, no, not in Israel. And I say to you, That many will
come from the east and west, and will sit down with Abraham, and
Isaac, and Jacob, in the Kingdom of Heaven. But the children of the
Kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there will be weeping
and gnashing of teeth.
What Jesus meant in the Faith of the Centurion Bible story was that just as this Roman
centurion of great faith, didn't come from Israel, there will be many
Gentiles of great faith in Heaven. But you can be an Israelite and if
you have no faith in Jesus Christ (Another Blind Faith Bible ingredient), you'll be thrown into outer
darkness. Weeping and gnashing of teeth is a phrase that Jesus uses
many times to show how horribly devastating it will be.
Jesus said, Go your way, and as you believed, it
will be done for you. The centurion's servant was healed in the very
The next day, Jesus went into a city called Nain.
Many of His disciples and many other people went with Him. When He
arrived at the gate of the city, there was a dead man being carried
out, who was an only son of his mother, and she was a widow. Many
people of the city were with her.
When Jesus saw her, He had compassion on her and
said, Donít cry. He went and touched the coffin and the people who
carried it stood still. Jesus said, Young man, I say to you, Arise.
The man who was dead, sat up and started to talk,
and Jesus took him to his mother. A fear came upon everyone who saw it
happen and they glorified God saying, A great prophet is among us,
and, God has visited His people. Wow ... What a Blind Faith Bible story that was.
A rumor of what Jesus did spread throughout all
Judea and all the lands surrounding it and the disciples of John the
Baptist told Him about it.
Jesus made the man who was dead, come to life.
I ask you, who else can do that, but the Son of God?
The blind faith Bible study reveals that the faith of the centurion brought forth true and immediate healing from the Lord. His sheer blind faith that Jesus would act brought for the miracle.
