And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
Note 1 at Mt 8:2: Worship is reserved for God alone (Mt 4:10). Angels refused worship (Re 19:10 and 22:8-9), and men refused worship (Ac 10:25-26 and 14:11-18). There are eleven instances where Jesus was worshiped (Mt 2:2, this verse, 9:18, 14:33, 15:25, 20:20, 28:9, 17; Mr 5:6; Lu 24:52; and Joh 9:38). The fact that Jesus received this man's worship further attests to the fact that He was God in the flesh (1Ti 3:16).
