This Week’s Lesson – Jesus Healed a Woman and a Girl

  • Session Title: Jesus Healed a Woman and a Girl
  • Bible Passage: Mark 5
  • Story Point: Jesus healed a woman and raised a girl from the dead.
  • Key Passage: Isaiah 53:4-5
  • Big Picture Question: Why did God create people? God created people to worship Him, love Him, and show His glory.

Jesus stood on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, and a large crowd gathered around Him. Jairus (JIGH ruhs), one of the leaders in the synagogue, fell at Jesus’ feet and begged for His help. “My daughter is about to die! Please come touch her so she will be healed and live,” he said. Jesus went with Jairus, and many people followed, crowding around Him.

In the crowd was a woman who had been bleeding for 12 years. She had seen many doctors and had spent all her money trying to get better, but no one could help her. She was getting worse. The woman said to herself, “If I touch even Jesus’ clothes, I will be healed.”
She came up behind Jesus in the crowd and touched His clothes. Immediately, her bleeding stopped and she knew she was healed.
At that moment, Jesus felt that power had gone out of Him. He turned around. “Who touched My clothes?” He asked. Jesus’ disciples pointed out that many people were crowded around Him. But Jesus kept looking around. The woman, knowing she was healed, came forward and fell before Jesus. She told Him what had happened. Jesus said to her, “Daughter, your faith has saved you. Go in peace. You are healed.”

While Jesus was speaking, some men came from Jairus’ house and told Jairus, “Your daughter is dead. Do not bother Jesus anymore.”
Jesus heard what the men said, and He told Jairus, “Do not be afraid. Just believe.”

Jesus and three of His disciples went to Jairus’ house. People there were crying and wailing loudly. “Why are you crying?” Jesus asked. “The child is not dead. She is sleeping.” The people laughed because they did not believe Jesus, and He told them all to leave. Jesus took Jairus and his wife into the room where the child was. He took the girl by the hand and said, “Little girl, get up.” Immediately, the girl got up and began walking around. Jairus and his wife were amazed. Jesus told them to give the girl some food and to not tell anyone what had happened.
