John Walvoord and Roy Zuck state that: "What appeared to be a disastrous delay in the healing of the woman actually assured the restoration of Jairus' daughter. It was providentially ordered to test and strengthen Jairus' faith." [7] Johann Lange also states that: "This delay would serve both to try and to strengthen the faith of Jairus." [8]

The record of the daughter of Jairus is a combination of miracles of Jesus in the Gospels (Mark 5:21–43, Matthew 9:18–26, Luke 8:40–56)

The story immediately follows the exorcism at Gerasa. Jairus, a patron or ruler of a Galilee synagogue, had asked Jesus to heal his 12-year-old daughter, who in Mark's and Luke's accounts was dying, and in Matthew's simplified account, had already died.

Having just returned from a little jaunt across the sea of Galilee, where He demonstrated His power over nature, now Jesus hits the beach and demonstrates His power over the spiritual realm. [2]

As they were traveling to Jairus' house, a sick woman in the crowd touched Jesus' cloak and was healed of her sickness. Jesus turned round to the woman and said "You have been healed of your sins have faith in the Lord".(see Christ healing the bleeding woman). Moments later, a messenger arrived with the news that Jairus' daughter had died, and he was advised not to trouble Jesus any further. However, Jesus responded: "Be not afraid, only believe." (Mark 5:36)

Jesus continued to the house, where he informed all those present that the girl was not dead but asleep. He then went upstairs and restored the little girl to life. In Mark's account, the Aramaic phrase "Talitha Koum" (transliterated into Greek as ταλιθα κουμ and meaning, "Little girl, I say to you, get up!") is attributed to Jesus.

The combined stories have been used as an example of intercalation, where one incident is inserted within another, linked in this case by the connection between the 12-year ailment and the 12-year-old girl. [4]

Interpretations
John Donahue and Daniel Harrington state that this episode shows that "faith, especially as embodied by the bleeding woman, can exist in seemingly hopeless situations".[5]

Michael Keene states that there is a link between Jairus and the woman: "The link between them is faith since both Jairus and the bleeding woman showed great faith in Jesus".[6]

John Walvoord and Roy Zuck state that: "What appeared to be a disastrous delay in the healing of the woman actually assured the restoration of Jairus' daughter. It was providentially ordered to test and strengthen Jairus' faith." [7] Johann Lange also states that: "This delay would serve both to try and to strengthen the faith of Jairus." [8]


Encourage, Exhort
PHOTO: "Dear Lord, Please help us to share the connection between the woman with her 12-year bleeding ailment and the raising of the dead 12-year-old girl. Strengthen in us this great faith that exist in seemingly hopeless situations. Through Lord Jesus Christ we pray. Amen!"
