Jesus said to him, “Go; your son will live.” The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and went on his way.
See the juxtaposition between belief and action? The father believed and went; he didn't wait for confirmation by the servants. I'm sure he went rejoicing.
Do you wonder what the reaction was when his servants found him? Were they shocked to find him rejoicing? How did he already know? Don't you think this story spread throughout Galilee like wildfire?
