“Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will never believe.”

Lord Jesus Christ

THE STORY OF JAIRUS is recorded in the Books of Mark 5:22-41 and Luke 8:41-56.

The story of miracle that Jesus Christ did which I like to read most in the bible is the raising of Jairus daughter from the dead. It touches my heart. Reading the lines progress on, it moves me eventually until a drop of tears are coming out from my eyes.

The event of miracle happened in the past, but I’m sure it will happen again to those who believe. A great faith is necessary to move the hands of God.


Jairus was the father of a 12-year-old girl whom Jesus raised from the dead. Jairus was a ruler in the synagogue of Capernaum, so he was a well-known religious leader.

At that time, Jairus came to Jesus, pleading with Him to come lay His hands on his only daughter, who was near death. He humbled himself before Jesus, falling down at His feet. Jairus expressed faith in Jesus' ability to heal his child, and Jesus began to follow him home.

As Jesus walked with Jairus, they had to press through a large crowd. "The crowds almost crushed him." It is likely that the crowd slowed Jesus' progress considerably, and this must have been frustrating for Jairus - time was of the essence, since his daughter was at the point of death. In the midst of the crowd, a woman who had been bleeding for 12 years came up behind Jesus and touched the hem of his robe, saying to herself, "If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed." Her flow of blood dried up immediately. Jesus felt that power had gone out from Him, and He turned to ask who had touched His clothing. The woman came to Him, trembling in fear, and, falling before Him, told Him the truth. Jesus said, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering."

As Jesus was speaking to the woman, some people from the house of Jairus arrived and told Jairus that his daughter was dead and there was no need to trouble Jesus anymore.

Jesus overheard the news and gave Jairus two commands and a promise:

"Don't be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed."

Together, they continued towards the house of Jairus. When they got there, the mourners were wailing and weeping, but Jesus asked them, "Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep."

The mourners turned into scoffers, laughing and making fun of Jesus. Undettered, Jesus went into the house, taking with Him Jairus and his wife, along with His three disciples- Peter, James, and John.

Jesus entered the room where Jairus' daughter lay. He took the dead girl by the hand and said, "Talitha koum," which means, "Little girl, I say to you, arise". Immediately, the girl"s spirit returned, and she got up and began walking around.

Everyone was "completely astonished"; literally, they were "removed from a standing position" or, as we might say, they were "floored" or "thrown for a loop." Jesus then commanded Jairus to give his daughter something to eat but not tell anyone about the miracle. 🍏
