And when Jesus had crossed over
in the boat again to the other side,
a large crowd gathered about him,
and he was beside the sea.
And one of the synagogue rulers named Jairus comes,
and seeing him he falls at his feet, and begs him much
saying, "My little daughter is dying;
come lay your hands on her, so that she may be saved and live."
And he went away with him.

And a large crowd followed him, and pressed upon him.
And a woman having a flow of blood for twelve years,
and suffering many things under many physicians
and having spent all she had,
and not being helped but rather getting worse,
heard about Jesus,
and coming in the crowd behind touched his robe;
for she said, "If I may touch even his clothes,
I shall be saved."

And immediately Jesus recognizing in himself
the power going out from him,
turning around in the crowd said,
"Who touched my clothes?"

And his disciples said to him,
"You see the crowd pressing upon you,
and you say, 'Who touched me?'"

And he looked around to see who had done this.
And the woman afraid and trembling,
knowing what happened to her,
came and fell before him and told him the whole truth.

And he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has saved you;
go in peace, and be healed from your suffering."

While he was speaking,
they come from the synagogue ruler's
saying, "Your daughter died;
why still bother the teacher?"

But Jesus overhearing the word spoken
says to the synagogue ruler, "Fear not, only believe."
And he did not let anyone accompany him
except Peter and James and John the brother of James.

And they come into the home of the synagogue ruler,
and he sees distress, and weeping and much wailing,
and entering he says to them, "Why be distressed and weep?
The child did not die, but is sleeping."

And they laughed at him.
But putting out everyone he takes the father of the child
and the mother and the ones with him,
and goes in where the child was.
And holding the hand of the child
he says to her, "Talitha koum,"
which is translated, "Little girl, I tell you, arise."

And immediately the little girl stood up and walked;
for she was twelve years old.
And they were astonished immediately with great amazement.
And he gave strict orders that no one should know this,
and he said she was to be given something to eat.
Mark 5:21-43

As he was speaking these things to them,
look, a ruler approaching knelt before him
saying, "My daughter has just died;
but come lay your hand upon her, and she will live."

And rising Jesus and his disciples followed him.
And look, a woman bleeding for twelve years
approaching behind touched the fringe of his robe;
for she said to herself, "If only I may touch his robe,
I shall be saved."

And Jesus turning and seeing her
said, "Have courage, daughter; your faith has saved you."
And the woman was restored from that hour.

And Jesus coming into the house of the ruler
and seeing the flute players and the distressed crowd said,
"Depart; for the little girl did not die, but is sleeping."

And they laughed at him.
But when the crowd was put out,
entering he held her hand, and he raised the little girl.
And this news went out throughout that land.
Matthew 9:18-26

On Jesus' return the crowd welcomed him;
for they were all waiting for him.
And look, a man came whose name was Jairus,
and this one was a ruler of the synagogue;
and falling by the feet of Jesus
he begs him to enter into his house,
because he had an only daughter about twelve years old
and she was dying.

As he was going, the crowds pressed upon him.
And a woman having a flow of blood for twelve years,
who could not be healed by anyone,
approaching behind touched the fringe of his robe,
and at once the flow of her blood stopped.

And Jesus said, "Who was touching me?"

And everyone denying it Peter said,
"Master, the crowds press upon you and push."

But Jesus said, "Someone touched me;
for I knew power had gone out from me."

And the woman seeing that she was not unnoticed,
came trembling and falling before him
declared before all the people the reason why she touched him,
and how she was cured at once.

And he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has saved you;
go in peace."

While he was speaking,
someone comes from the synagogue ruler's saying,
"Your daughter has died; don't bother the teacher any more."

But Jesus having heard answered him, "Fear not;
only believe, and she will be saved."

And coming into the house he did not let anyone enter with him
except Peter and John and James
and the father of the child and the mother.
And everyone was weeping and mourning her.

But he said, "Do not weep;
she did not die, but is sleeping."

And they laughed at him, knowing that she died.
But he holding her hand called saying, "Child, arise."
And her spirit returned, and she stood up at once,
and he directed that she be given something to eat.
And her parents were amazed;
and he instructed them to tell no one what happened.
Luke 8:40-56

And passing along from there two blind men followed Jesus
shouting and saying, "Have mercy on us, son of David!"

And coming into the house the blind men approached him,
and Jesus says to them, "Do you believe that I can do this?"

They say to him, "Yes, Lord."

Then he touched their eyes
saying, "According to your faith may it be for you."
And their eyes were opened.
And Jesus warned them sternly saying,
"See that no one should know."

But going out they spread the news about him
throughout that land.
And as they were going out,
look, they brought to him a dumb demoniac.
And the demon being expelled the dumb man spoke.
And the crowds marveled
saying, "Never has such appeared in Israel."

But the Pharisees said, "By the ruler of the demons
he expels the demons."
Matthew 9:27-34

And he went out from there, and comes into his homeland,
and his disciples follow him.
And the Sabbath occurring he began to teach in the synagogue;
and many hearing were astonished
saying, "Where did he get these things,
and what is the wisdom given to him?
And such powerful deeds are occurring through his hands!
Isn't this the carpenter, the son of Mary
and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon?
And aren't his sisters here with us?"
And they were offended by him.

And Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not unhonored
except in his homeland and among his relatives and in his home."
And he could not do any powerful deeds there,
except laying on his hands he healed a few sick people.
And he marveled because of their lack of faith.
And he circulated around the villages teaching.
Mark 6:1-6

And coming into his homeland
he taught them in their synagogues,
so that they were astonished
and said, "Where did he get this wisdom and the powers?
Isn't this the son of the carpenter?
Isn't his mother called Mary
and his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas?
And aren't all his sisters with us?
Where then did he get all these things?"
And they were offended by him.

But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not unhonored
except in his homeland and in his home."
And he did not do many powerful deeds there
because of their lack of faith.
Matthew 13:54-58

And Jesus went around to all the towns and villages,
teaching in their synagogues
and preaching the good message of the sovereignty
and healing every disease and every illness.

And seeing the crowds he was compassionate about them,
because they were troubled
and lying like sheep having no shepherd.

Then he says to his disciples, "The harvest is large,
but the workers are few;
therefore ask the Lord of the harvest
so he may put out workers for his harvest."
Matthew 9:35-38

Jesus said, "The harvest is great, but the workers are few;
ask that the Lord send workers for the harvest."
Thomas 73
