Matthew 8: 5-17: Healing from a Distance

What does Jesus do when confronted with a unique request from an unlikely source? This portion of Matthew marks one of only two times in the Gospels that Jesus is ever described at “astonished” or “amazed” at something. This passage also contains several other unique features which serve to show us more fully why Jesus came and what He hoped to accomplish on this earth.
