Jairus’ Daughter

Jairus’ Daughter and the Woman with an issue of blood – Matt 9:18-25, Mark 5:21-43 & Luke 8:41-56


These are wonderful stories connected by location and opportunity.  We are going to spend two days talking about these two great stories.  Jairus was the leader of the local synacogue.  He asked Jesus to come and heal his daughter.  Jesus went to the house.  On the way there a woman who had an issue of blood for some twelve years and who had tried to be healed by doctors saw Him.  She felt that if she could just touch the hem of His garment she would be healed.  When she touch and was healed by Him, Jesus felt the power go out of Him.  He turned around and asked who touched Him.  The woman came forward and Jesus told her that her faith and made her well.


1.        The woman who had the issue of blood had tried all the manmade cures and now she needed Jesus the great physician.

2.        She knew by faith that Jesus could heal her and all she had to do was touch the hem of His garment.  Faith is the catalyst to knowledge.  You know in your heart that Jesus is the healer and just one touch from Him can make you whole.

3.        It is the power of God coming from God into your life that makes you well.  Jesus felt the power of God go out of Him so when He asked the question who touched Him though He knew what had happen.

4.        When this woman came forward she was giving a testimony of God’s goodness.  We over come by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony.  So tell others what Jesus had done for you.
