People's Bible Notes for Matthew 8:10


Mt 8:10 When Jesus heard [it], he marvelled. There are two cases in the Lord's history where he is said to have marvelled; here and in Mr 6:6. In one case he marvels at the faith of a Gentile; in the other at the unbelief of the Jews. I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. The greatness of his faith is shown in his lofty conception of the power and dignity of Christ. This great faith was found, not in Israel, but in a Gentile. In one case beside, that of the Syrophoenician woman (Mt 15:28), also a Gentile, the Lord commends the greatness of faith.

Discussion for Matthew 8:10

  • Matt Nicholas on Matthew 8:10
    Good and faithful people come in all stripes and sizes.
  • Mike Dorwart on Matthew 8:10
    This is a amazing statement coming from the lips of Jesus. We see Jesus in his humanity surprised at the response of a Roman centurion. In John 2:25 we se that Jesus had the ability to see the hearts of men, also in John 1:47 48 we see Jesus revealing to Nathanael facts about a man he had never personally met. This would be the God man.
