iair-150x1501. JESUS RESTORES A GIRL TO LIFE (Luke 8, 40)


It is not improbable that  Jairus, the ruler of the synagogue,  had been one of the deputation who had pleaded with Jesus for the centurion - proselyte by whom the synagogue  had been built. He knew by experience the power of Jesus. The GREAT  PHYSICIAN  said: "The little maid is not dead but asleep"!  DIAGNOSIS:  CLINICAL DEATH.  He added : "Talitha cumi -  Little  maid, arise"!  And her spirit returned.

2. JESUS HEALS A BLEEDING WOMAN.  In the crowds it was a  woman who for 12 years had suffered from a distressing malady (Metromenorrhagia), which unfitted her for the relationships of life, and which was peculiarly afflicting, because in the popular mind it was regarded as a direct consequence of sinful habits. In her feminine modesty she was ashamed to reveal the malady and she was determined to steal from Him, unknown, the blessing for which she longed.  The Law ordained that the touch of one afflicted as she was, caused ceremonial uncleanness till the evening. BUT HIS TOUCH HAD CLEANSED HER, NOT HERS POLLUTED HIM. "Daughter, go for peace: your faith has healed you" (Luke 8, 48)
