Luke 7:1 Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum.

Luke 7:2-10 And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die. And when he heard of Emmanuel, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant. And when they came to Emmanuel, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this. For he loves our nation and he has built us a synagogue. Then Emmanuel went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not yourself, for I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof. Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto you, but say in a word and my servant shall be healed. For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers and I say unto one, Go and he goes and to another, Come and he comes and to my servant, Do this and he does it. When Emmanuel heard these things, he marveled at him and turned him about and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.

Luke 7:11 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain and many of his disciples went with him and much people.

Luke 7:12 Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother and she was a widow. And much people of the city was with her.

Luke 7:13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said unto her, Weep not.

Luke 7:14 And he came and touched the bier and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.

Luke 7:15 And he that was dead sat up and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.

Luke 7:16 And there came a fear on all and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us and, That God has visited his people.

Luke 7:17-20 And this rumor of him went forth throughout all Judaea and throughout all the region round about. And the disciples of John showed him of all these things. And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Emmanuel, saying, Are you he that should come? or look we for another? When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist has sent us unto you, saying, Are you he that should come? or look we for another? 

Luke 7:21 And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues and of evil spirits and unto many that were blind he gave sight.

Luke 7:22 Then Emmanuel answering said unto them, Go your way and tell John what things you have seen and heard, how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

Luke 7:23 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me..(*)

Luke 7:24-28 And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went you out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind?  But what went you out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled and live delicately, are in kings' courts. But what went you out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you and much more than a prophet. This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist, but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. 

Luke 7:29 And all the people.(the common people that is, as the leaders hated him).that heard him and the publicans, justified God.(could see how God was in all this and did what was needed at the time), being baptized with the baptism of John.

Luke 7:30 But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him.

Abbott's Illustrated New Testament:."The meaning is, that the mass of the nation and even the publicans, acknowledged John as a prophet and glorified God by their repentance. John was rejected only by the Pharisees and lawyers, who, acting against themselves, resisted God's gracious designs for their salvation."

Luke 7:31,32 And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like? They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace and calling one to another and saying, We have piped unto you and you have not danced and we have mourned to you and you have not wept.

Luke 7:33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine and you say, He has a devil.

Luke 7:34 The Son of man is come eating and drinking and you say, Behold a gluttonous man and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!

Luke 7:35 But wisdom is justified of all her children.

Luke 7:36 And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee's house and sat down to meat.(to have food)

Luke 7:37,38 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Emmanuel sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, And stood at his feet behind him weeping and began to wash his feet with tears and did wipe them with the hairs of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment.

Luke 7:39 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that touches him, for she is a sinner.

Luke 7:40 And Emmanuel answering.(he knew what he was thinking but didn't openly speak about).said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he said, Master, say on.

Luke 7:41 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors. The one owed five hundred pence and the other fifty.

Luke 7:42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?

Luke 7:43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, You have rightly judged.

Luke 7:44 And he turned to the woman and said unto Simon, See this woman? I entered into your house and you gave me no water for my feet. But she has washed my feet with tears and wiped them with the hairs of her head. 

Luke 7:45 You gave me no kiss.(Romans 16:16). But this woman since the time I came in has not ceased to kiss my feet. 

Luke 7:46 My head with oil you did not anoint, but this woman has anointed my feet with ointment..(she had already been awakened to the truth of her existence and was showing her thankfulness for that; she knew where Emmanuel came from and that it was He before His physical life on Earth that awakened her)

Luke 7:47 Wherefore.(or, because of her attitude, based on what she knew in her heart).I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven.(she had a new attitude and because of that she had left her old low consciousness life of trouble behind), for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little..(live your life from your heart; this woman was so thankful because she had hurt her life so much in previous years)

Luke 7:48,49 And he said unto her, Your sins are forgiven.(or, you're certainly not missing the mark anymore). And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgives sins also?.(not that Emmanuel right then and there forgave any sins, as this woman was awakened to the fact that she was already forgiven and saved before the universe was formed:.2Timothy 1:9; since there is no time in the invisible realm, the past, present and future exist right there; all is present at once in that realm; it was this woman's awakening that changed her by causing her to realize that she was already clean spiritually, created that way, for how could God, being love, create anything that wasn't pure, holy and perfect?; Emmanuel was here commenting to the disciples {those who were learning from Him} about her most thankful attitude, showing that she was a changed woman)

Luke 7:50 And he said to the woman, Your faith has saved you.(it was her belief in the truth accompanying her awakening, which caused a change in her attitude, which truth is explained in the verses above, from 44); go in peace.
