God’s Bride, Jerusalem of Gold, the Faith that Made Jesus Marvel. The healing of the Centurian. (Hebrews 12:2.)

The Centurian who became a Christian, contrarian extraordinare (not) for Jesus’s word and servanthood. “Lord I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof but only say the word and let my servant be healed.” Jesus replies, “I too am a man under authority with soldiers under me.” This man was a Roman soldier, a representative of Israel’s enemy.  Jesus moved his head and chuckled. He understood what even these Jewish elders didn’t yet grasp.
