Matthew 8:10 Commentary

Mat 8:10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!

In Matthew 8:10, Jesus encounters a Centurion who believes Jesus could heal his servant remotely. Jesus “marvels”. This is a gentile who believes Jesus has more power than even the natives of Israel. The marveling suggests this is news to Jesus. Despite some depictions of Jesus as Omniscient, the text of Matthew portrays him learning and even being surprised.
