18 Empathize with Her We can’t imagine living in such an age of ignorance; notice how God uses disease and death to drive people to the Savior?

19 Mark 5:27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. Why are stories with specific kinds of miracles like this so important?

20 CreationFall Mark 5:21ff Consummation If the four Gospels of Jesus Christ did not contain miracles we might be suspect of the miracles in the Acts of the Apostles by Luke. However, since Christ performed amazing miracles we are not surprised when His Apostles are able to do the same.

21 Mark 5:28 If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. Why did this woman say this?

22 Mark 5:29 And straightway the fountain [flow] of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague [disease]. And straightway the fountain [flow] of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague [disease].

24 Mark 5:31-32 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

26 Mark 5:34 And he said unto her, And he said unto her, – Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

27 Consider All We Can Learn about God From This Narrative So Far

28 Jesus Is Moved with compassion for Jairus Moved with compassion for Jairus Out and among the people Out and among the people NOT some supernatural force that doesn’t know when He is healing and doing things NOT some supernatural force that doesn’t know when He is healing and doing things Desirous of personal contact/relationships Desirous of personal contact/relationships

29 Mark 5:35 While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?

30 Mark 5:36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.

31 Let’s Learn; v. 34 & v. 36

32 Please Notice It is NOT the words or the petition that heals or saves

33 v And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; 34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; v As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. 36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.

Now faith is the substance hypostasis of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Heb 11:1) Now faith is the substance hypostasis of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Heb 11:1) Hypostasis (AV) Hypostasis (AV) – confidence 2x, confident 1x – confidence 2x, confident 1x – person 1x, substance 1x

36 Commentary/Paraphrase Hebrews 11:1 Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

39 Mark 5:39 And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. Jesus’ words serve to heighten the conflict between the believers and unbelievers

40 Mark 5:40 And they laughed him to scorn. And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying.

41 There are many ways in which Jesus could have demonstrated His Deity Yet, He chooses ways motivated by His pity for human pain and suffering

42 Mark 5:41 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise. And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.
