Treasury of Scripture

Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying to him, Lord, trouble not yourself: for I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof:

Jesus.

Matthew 20:28
Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Mark 5:24
And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.

trouble.

for.

Luke 7:4
And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:

Luke 5:8
When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.

Luke 15:19-21
And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants…









(6) Then Jesus went with them.--Literally, And Jesus was going with them.

The centurion sent friends to him.--The precision of St. Luke's account leads us to receive it as a more accurate record of what St. Matthew reports in outline. It is, we may add, more true to nature. The centurion was not likely to leave the slave who was so precious to him when he seemed as in the very agonies of death.

Trouble not thyself.--The word is the same as in Mark 5:35, where see Note.

Verse 6. - Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof. Augustine's comment on these remarkable words is good: "By saying that he was unworthy, he showed himself worthy of Christ's entering, not within his walls, but within his heart."
