Bible: Luke 8:40-56

Restoration and Healing

8:40 Now when Jesus returned, 1  the crowd welcomed him, because they were all waiting for him. 8:41 Then 2  a man named Jairus, who was a ruler 3  of the synagogue, 4  came up. Falling 5  at Jesusfeet, he pleaded 6  with him to come to his house, 8:42 because he had an only daughter, about twelve years old, and she was dying. 7 

As Jesus was on his way, the crowds pressed 8  around him. 8:43 Now 9  a woman was there who had been suffering from a hemorrhage 10  for twelve years 11  but could not be healed by anyone. 8:44 She 12  came up behind Jesus 13  and touched the edge 14  of his cloak, 15  and at once the bleeding 16  stopped. 8:45 Then 17  Jesus asked, 18 Who was it who touched me?” When they all denied it, Peter 19  said, “Master, the crowds are surrounding you and pressing 20  against you! 8:46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me, for I know that power has gone out 21  from me.” 8:47 When 22  the woman saw that she could not escape notice, 23  she came trembling and fell down before him. In 24  the presence of all the people, she explained why 25  she had touched him and how she had been immediately healed. 8:48 Then 26  he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. 27  Go in peace.”

8:49 While he was still speaking, someone from the synagogue ruler’s 28  house came and said, “Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher any longer.” 8:50 But when Jesus heard this, he told 29  him, “Do not be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” 30  8:51 Now when he came to the house, Jesus 31  did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John, 32  and James, and the child’s father and mother. 8:52 Now they were all 33  wailing and mourning 34  for her, but he said, “Stop your weeping; she is not dead but asleep.” 8:53 And they began making fun 35  of him, because they knew 36  that she was dead. 37  8:54 But Jesus 38  gently took her by the hand and said, 39 Child, get up.” 8:55 Her 40  spirit returned, 41  and she got up immediately. Then 42  he told them to give her something to eat. 8:56 Her 43  parents were astonished, but he ordered them to tell no one 44  what had happened.
