ABC:Matthew 8

From BibleStrength

Verse 5 claims the Bible is wrong about the following passage in the section "Who Brought the Capernaum Centurion’a Request to Jesus?", and makes the following comments (italicized):[1]

All of these passages complement one another, rather than contradicting. Luke 7:3-6 shows evidence of a pattern, first the centurion sent elders begging Jesus to come, and then when Jesus was in the neighborhood he sent friends to keep urging Jesus to come. Finally when Jesus arrived the centurion states belief that Jesus can heal the servant without even entering (Matthew 8:5), which may have been why Jesus applauded the centurion for his trust. (Luke 7:9)

As an interesting sidenote, the centurion may have been Cornelius, the only righteous centurion named in the Bible, whose household became the first non-Jewish Christians. (Acts 10)
