The King Who Graciously Saves/Heals Two Daughters

Similarities & Differences

Jairus and his 12-year-old daughter

Woman with 12-year discharge of blood

Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, and seeing him, he fell at his feet and implored him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well and live.” And He went with him. And a great crowd followed Him and thronged about Him. [vv. 22-24]

She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.” And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. [vv.27-29]

But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace and be healed of your disease.” [vv.33-34]

But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.” And He allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. [vv.36-37]

And they laughed at Him. But He put them all outside and took the child’s father and mother and those who were with Him and went in where the child was. Taking the child by the hand, He said to her, "Talitha kum!" (which translated means, "Little girl, I say to you, get up!"). And immediately the girl got up and began walking (for she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement. And He strictly charged them that no one should know this and told them to give her something to eat. [vv.40-43]

And wherever He came, in villages, cities, or countryside, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and implored Him that they might touch even the fringe of his garment. And as many as touched it were made well. Mark 6:56
