The basic word I-You can be spoken only with one’s whole being. Theconcentration and fusion into a whole being can never beaccomplished by me, can never be accomplished without me. Irequire a You to become; becoming I, I say You. All actual life isencounter.

She is dead
The healing of 1 is the death of another
Do you see what's happening?Do you see how God works?
Why bother the master
Oh -who touched me?
do not be afraid
Do not fear death. Do not fear yourcircumstance. Do not fear what seemsimpossible before you right now. Do not fearthat.
The transfer of fear shows up in all 4 miracles
Fear of storm. Now fear Jesus
Fear of demoniac. Now fear Jesus
Fear of ??. Now fear Jesus
Fear of circumstance.
Believe in Jesus. Believe in HIs power. Believe in his word.Believe He is able. Believe death does not have the final word.Beelieve that His kingdom is greater than the kingdom ofdeath.
Believe that jesus came torestore all things, even death.

Mourners formed a professional guild in first-century Judaism and were required at funerals;"Even the poorest person in Israel should hire at least two flute players and one wailing woman," said Rabbi Judah a century later. The mourners, usually women, accompanied the bier from thehouse to the grave, clapping their hands together and wailing haunting laments. Edwards Jr.,James R. (2009-10-05). The Gospel according to Mark (Pillar New Testament Commentary)(Kindle Locations 3317-3320). Eerdmans Publishing Co A. Kindle Edition.
commotion, weeping wailing
poorest provide for at least 2wialing women, and flower ...durge...
large funerals lots of wailing....
often same day.... she dies
REF: Lazarus ... he refers to that as sleeping
Paul will talk about it in terms of sleep
death is not final
Means there's a waking up! Resurrection
n that moment, Jesus redefined death as a temporary condition. That’s why He uses themetaphor or the analogy of sleep. Sleep is a temporary disconnect, isn’t it? You’reinsensitive to the environment around you when you’re asleep, you don’t hear theconversations, you don’t participate socially. You’re asleep. But it’s a temporarysituation. And Jesus is saying for this girl, this is just asleep, it’s temporary. This is notpermanent.
puts transloation in Mark wrote to Greeks ..
"Talitha koum"is Aramaic; talitha is a feminine form of the word for "lamb"or "youth,"andkoum an imperative meaning "arise!"49 The Greek translation indicates that Mark's first readersin Rome were not native Hebrew or Aramaic speakers, who otherwise would not need atranslation. The Greek translation, "little girl,"is endearing. The word korasion, a diminutive ofkorē (a stately young woman or maiden), indicates prime childhood, perhaps "little lady."Suchnomenclature reveals the vast difference in Jesus' perspective of the girl from the mourners'perspective.

Jesus wants faith, jesus wants touch,Jesus wants intimacy andrelationship.
"he went with him"
("This is why I have come"), Mark testifies to Jesus' commitment to minister tohuman need and to the inestimable worth of the human individual for Jesus. Edwards Jr., James R. (2009-10-05). The Gospel according to Mark (Pillar NewTestament Commentary) (Kindle Locations 3254-3255). Eerdmans Publishing CoA. Kindle Edition.
I love Matthew 12:20 which basically quotes Isaiah 42:3, “A bruised reed He will not break and smokingflax He will not quench.” When someone is bruised and battered and broken and the flame is about togo out, He doesn’t break that person further, He doesn’t blow that wick out, He comes to bring rest andstrength and restoration. I love that. Matthew 14:14, He was moved with compassion. Mark 1:41, He wasmoved with compassion. Mark 8:2, “I have compassion on the multitude. Matthew 9:36, “When He sawthe multitudes He was moved with compassion.” So much compassion in the heart of God of those whosuffer.
there was a woman
NOTE: She's not named. Why?Cause no oen would know her.
THe contrast is Jairus is named.
Jesus reaches the big and small!
She's at a an end and she thinks heres jesus
Desperation does that. it's wonderufl. It bringsan end to our self-sufficienciy. She's at an end.no one can help.
This is encouraging that the main reason peopledont' find Jesus is not because they have too littlefaith, but becahst they have too much pride -keller
This is not saying, “Faith is something you have to conjure up.” Faith is simply admitting, “I amhelpless. I am weak.” If today you say, “I haven’t connected to Jesus,” the main reason youhaven’t connected to Jesus is not because you haven’t conjured up some kind of faith. Themain reason is because you still have too much pride to admit, “Without you, I am nothing.” Keller, T. J. (2013). The Timothy Keller Sermon Archive. New York City: Redeemer PresbyterianChurch.
Is based on information
public he brings it out public
has a direction
It's more about direction than dimension.Its'about the posture of the heart rathe rthanthe extreme coureage of the heart
Note what she does here.... where Jairus comes and bows, hecomes among the crowd, a following .. not his fault, but just theway it is. He has friends servants. He comes towards Jesus.Finds him. Pleads come.
But note this woman. Unnamed cause what'sthe point ofnaming someone that no one knows. She's been unclean for 12years. Outcast. OUtsider. And she comes just touch the hemof the garment.
why? Not to make him unclean
think about her faith and howit was not so ideal
She has terrible faith. She says, “If I just touch his cloak …” She has a quasi-magical understanding.She is superstitious. She has no idea who he is. The reason he has to pull her out and make her see itwas her faith that saved her is she has no idea who he is. She has no idea what he brings. She hasno idea she needs more than just magically to be cured, but she needs actually a spiritual cure andshe needs to become one of his disciples and a person who is willing to confess him publicly. Keller, T. J. (2013). The Timothy Keller Sermon Archive. New York City: Redeemer PresbyterianChurch.
I mean, the reason Jesus pulls her out and does all that is because her faith issuch a mess. It’s such a wreck. It’s incredibly theologically flawed. It’sincredibly weak. It’s incredibly superstitious, but he heals her. Keller, T. J.(2013). The Timothy Keller Sermon Archive. New York City: RedeemerPresbyterian Church.
He doesn’t say, “Now will you have faith?” He says, “I healed you because of your faith.” Wellwhat does that mean? It is not the strength of your faith that saves you but the object of yourfaith. It is not the dimension of your faith. It’s the direction. What do you have faith in? See, thisis the 180-degree opposite to what the common view of the man or woman on the street istoday. What do you hear over and over and over again? Keller, T. J. (2013). The Timothy KellerSermon Archive. New York City: Redeemer Presbyterian Church.
I hear it in the op-ed pages. I hear it on talk shows. I hear it in books. I hear iteverywhere. They say, “It doesn’t matter what you believe as long as you believeit with all your might.” Jesus Christ is saying here, “It doesn’t matter howheartily you believe it as long as you’re believing in the right thing.” It’s exactlythe opposite. Total opposite.
Keller, T. J. (2013). The Timothy Keller SermonArchive. New York City: Redeemer PresbyterianChurch.
The common view is not common sense. Imagine three people, and they’re being chased by a bear. They’re running through the snow-coveredforest. They get to a ledge, and they realize the only way they’re going to escape is if they jump down onto the frozen pond. The first guy jumps,and he says, “I’m going to die! I’m going to die! I’m going to go right through. I’m going to drown.” He hits the ice, and it’s six inches thick, andhe is saved. The second guy says, “I’ve got a 50–50 chance. I might drown. This might work.” He hits the six inches of ice, and he is fine. He issaved. The third guy says, “This will probably work. It’s been pretty cold for a pretty long time.” He hits the six inches, and he is saved. Which oneis more saved? Well, the one with the most faith? Absolutely not. It has nothing to do with the amount of faith. The guy who said, “I’m going todie! I’m going to die! I’m going to die!” is saved. Why? He jumped. Why was she healed? She just came. How much faith do you have to have inthe ice for it to save you? Just enough to jump. How much faith do you have to have in Jesus? Just enough to come. Keller, T. J. (2013). TheTimothy Keller Sermon Archive. New York City: Redeemer Presbyterian Church.
saved by faith
we all get that faith is important, key.. but wemake the mistake in thinking faith must beperfect.
We think God's not answering me because even though i'm coming to himand praying and seeking, i have doubts, my faith is not perfect, so I have tobelieve more, believe more, pretend I have no doubts ... voodoo over the mind,suppress my doubts, be unreal with them... then, I'm good enough and God willhear me.
But the truth is, it's not "saved byyour faith"it's saved through yourfaith.
We sing a song ... can we be real with it
Just as I am, though tossed about With many a conflict,many a doubt, Fightings and fears within, without, O Lambof God, I come, I come. Keller, T. J. (2013). The Timothy KellerSermon Archive. New York City: Redeemer PresbyterianChurch.
such good news!!!
All the other miracles there was simply a word -storm _ Peace. Be still. Demoniac Go! No exertionlike you see in the movies... run out of energy andppower ...
But here, she touches him and she's healed and jesussays power has left me. That is, soemthing from him istransfered to her adn that transfer makes her well,healed.
Ironic becuase she's got a bleeding problem. Blood is leavinghere, flowing from her. And she touches jesus and power flowsfrom him. He takes on her attribute. Something precious fromhim flows involuntarily from him.
What is this? Substitute.
The unclean for the clean
He has to be cut off. He has to be thrown out. He has to be killed outside the camp, outside thegate. He has to be forsaken so we can be taken in. Therefore, the thing that connects you toJesus Christ spiritually, the thing that will get you past where most of us are (that is just beingkind of generally inspired by his example), is you have to look not just at Jesus in general but atthe cross in particular and of him crying out, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me” foryou Keller, T. J. (2013). The Timothy Keller Sermon Archive. New York City: RedeemerPresbyterian Church.
She touched him... she touchedGod and did not die! Mt. Sinai
She heard, she came, she touched!!!
Heard Faith is a response to hearing. Goes inline with hearing. If we never hear, we neverhave faith.
he did it because she’d heard. She had gotten information about him. She had learnedsomething about him. The common view today is to think of faith as opposed to thinking. Wethink of faith as going against what we know. Absolutely not. It takes tremendous faith to act inline with what we know, because faith is not opposed to your thinking. Faith is opposed to yourfears. Faith is opposed to self-protection. Keller, T. J. (2013). The Timothy Keller Sermon Archive.New York City: Redeemer Presbyterian Church.
See, for example, let’s just say you and five friends come to this huge gorge in the middle of the jungle, and there’s this terriblyrickety bridge. The first four go across it. Let’s say they’re all heavier than you. It comes to you. You have a lot of information. Sodoes that mean it’s not going to take faith to step out on that bridge? Oh yes! It’s going to take a lot of faith. You see, it’s notfaith against the information. It’s faith in line with the information and going beyond the information. If you want to find faith inJesus Christ, you have to learn about him. You don’t just close your eyes and say, “I’m going to believe in what gods there be.”Come on! You need to learn about him. You need to study. You need to find out about him. Something that’s maybe ano-brainer, but you have to say it. She heard. Keller, T. J. (2013). The Timothy Keller Sermon Archive. New York City: RedeemerPresbyterian Church.
Hence we need to learn to present Jesus andnot just the gifts of jesus. If we do that, then wepress I-iT christiainty
Look at the gospels, written primarily to understand to believe in jesus. In themis revealed his life, his character, his mission, his sacrifice. It's meant for readersto learn about jesus. To get incite to him. It's not one long emotion treatise tojsut believe, just believe. No. The foundation is know this Jesus, see what he hasdone.
Turht matters .. why eyewitnessaccounts matter so much
so many touched him but only one touched him. The truthis you can be around jesus and crowd him and touch himbut not really touch im. Not really know His power in yourlife
denying his power...
Mark describes her condition as a mastix, a graphic expression meaning "whip,lash, scourge, or torment"(see Acts 22: 24; Heb 11: 36). The term combinesphysical suffering and shame, hence something akin to punishment. Edwards Jr.,James R. (2009-10-05). The Gospel according to Mark (Pillar New TestamentCommentary) (Kindle Locations 3257-3258). Eerdmans Publishing Co A. KindleEdition.
In a dramatic volley of Greek participles, v. 26 graphs the woman's condition precipitously: having ablood flow, having suffered from many doctors, having exhausted all her wealth, having not improvedbut having gotten worse. The same verse is equally emphatic and categorical: she suffered much frommany physicians, exhausted all her resources, and gained nothing. Clearly, the woman's prospects areno better than the dying girl's. Edwards Jr., James R. (2009-10-05). The Gospel according to Mark (PillarNew Testament Commentary) (Kindle Locations 3258-3262). Eerdmans Publishing Co A. Kindle Edition.
The point is her life was no better than thedying girl. She was alive but her living was notlife. Her living was a living death. This is theinterlude.
Jesus comes not just to destroy death, bu allthe entrails, the things that come with death.
The gospel is not jsut about overcomign death it is surely thatbut it is so much more. It is also not just about overcomignphysical pain it willutliatmely be ablut that ... bu tit is aboutHim.
According to the Torah, a woman was unclean for seven days after her monthly period, but if shehad a protracted gynecological problem, as does this woman, she remained unclean throughoutits duration. Anyone who came into contact with her during menstruation would be banisheduntil evening (Lev. 15: 19-27). Josephus's testimony that "the temple was closed to womenduring their menstruation"(War 5.227) indicates that this particular Torah ruling was carefullyobserved in Jesus' day.

Question Like Jesus asking"Adam where are you?
Piont is to change this miracleinto a meeting.
She wants a healing, He wantsfar more than that.
i it relationship vs i thourelationship with person
martin hubert -https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/biography/Buber.html
people want an i it relatinship
In the kingdom of God, miraclesare not an end to itself. Meetingsare.
Discipleship is not just having ones needs met.It's growing in the presence of Jesus... beignKNOWN BY GOD!!
Luke 8:46 says, “I was awarethat power had gone out ofMe.”
This is rich insight into the reality that our God is not detached. He is not unfeeling in the sense that He has nopersonal connection to us. While He is unaltered by what men do, He is still personally engaged in every act ofpower. I told you, people like to say I have a personal relationship with Jesus. Let me tell you something.Everybody who has ever lived has a personal relationship with Jesus. He is personally involved in theirredemption, or He is personally involved in their judgment. Every expression of power, and every expression ofdeliverance is an experience that He feels. No one receives His power into his life without His personalinvolvement.
The chance of finding the suppliant in such a large crowd exasperates the disciples, butironically they are more out of touch with Jesus than is the woman. The persistence of Jesus indiscovering who touched him rivals the woman's persistence in reaching Jesus. She wants acure, however, a something, whereas Jesus desires a personal encounter with someone. Edwards Jr., James R. (2009-10-05). The Gospel according to Mark (Pillar New TestamentCommentary) (Kindle Locations 3289-3291). Eerdmans Publishing Co A. Kindle Edition.
THsi is not Jesus pretending.. remember he lefthis omniccient behind and lived in constatnrevelation fromthe Father...
This is not the fear of embarrassment. This not the fear of hostility from the crowd, because she touchedthem in the process of getting to Him. This is holy terror. This is holy fear. She’s not afraid because of heroffense. She is afraid because she’s aware of what has happened to her. And what has happened to her isshe has just been healed in a split second and she knows it and she therefore knows what Jesus hadbeen saying all along and what Mark is trying to let us know that this is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Sheis in the presence of divinity or deity. This is not human embarrassment, she got pass that. This is holyfear.
going back to the east side
lay ruler president...
sabath readers ... organzie .
piety, influential ... well to do often
In a synagogue the conducting of public worship, reading of Scriptures, preaching, and public prayer were performed not by aprofessional class of officials but by lay synagogue members. The ruler of the synagogue, accordingly, was not a worship leader or aprofessionally trained scribe or rabbi but a lay member of a synagogue who was entrusted by the elders of the community with generaloversight of the synagogue and orthodoxy of teaching. His responsibilities included building maintenance and security, procuring ofscrolls for Scripture reading, and arranging of Sabbath worship by designating Scripture readers, prayers, and preachers. Ordinarily, asynagogue had only one ruler, but not always. Acts 13: 15 speaks of at least two rulers in the same synagogue. In v. 22, however, "one ofthe synagogue rulers"should probably be taken to mean "one from the class of synagogue presidents." Edwards Jr., James R.(2009-10-05). The Gospel according to Mark (Pillar New Testament Commentary) (Kindle Locations 3237-3243). Eerdmans Publishing Co -A. Kindle Edition.
Here is a desparation of a parent in anguish ...and often that means all we have are lost,taken away. No pomp here.
Did he know about Jesus? Oh yes. Absolutely he knew about Jesus. Jesus had done many, many miracles in Capernaum.And notable miracles that could not possibly miss the grapevine. Even the ones that this man didn’t see, he would haveheard about...like letting a man down through the roof of a house, healing him and forgiving his sins, and a myriad moreday after day after day in Capernaum. And, by the way, he may have been in the very same synagogue where an incidentoccurred in chapter 1 recorded by Mark verses 21 to 28 where Jesus came into the synagogue, was teaching in thesynagogue and in the middle of His teaching, a demonic power spoke out of a man’s mouth and identified Jesus as theHoly One of God. In fear and terror, the demon exposed himself saying, “What business do we have with You? You are theHoly One of God.”
The daughter's condition is critical: the Gk. eschatos echei (NIV, "is dying") is acolloquialism for "at death's door"or "sinking fast." Edwards Jr., James R.(2009-10-05). The Gospel according to Mark (Pillar New TestamentCommentary) (Kindle Locations 3250-3251). Eerdmans Publishing Co A. KindleEdition.
The clean touches the unclean and theunclean become clean. How does thathappen?
It's so telling too, because every other thought of relgion is how to clean yourlife. You come and clean your life becuase at the end, you get in touch withyourself, or in touche withthe cosmic being, or in touch with the super naturalzen of this universe. But Jesus comes and he's clearly different, he's making thepoint that Jesus comes to touch the untouchable. He cleanses.
This btw, says a few things to us
You don't cleans first and thencome, ou come. He cleanses.
But if you have been cleanse, then you have beencleanse! So the expactation is not that you are cleanse,but the expectation is that once you are cleansed ... youwill liveit
NOte: Woman says she's beenhealed then. IMmediately.
Note; The girl gets up, walks. eats. What is that?Proof! It means she's alive. She's not a ghost,not out of body experience. She's been madealive.
Mark 5 might be called the "St. Jude chapter"(the saint ofhopeless causes), for the Gerasene demoniac, the menstruatingwoman, and Jairus each find hope in Jesus when all humanhopes are exhausted.

What does faith then mean?
a way to refering to relgion -"there are many faiths"
in NT, used only to refer to the christianreligion. Other than that talks about idolatry...faith
faith religious personal preference
Faith in something ... truthdoesn't matter... whatever youbelieve
"you really must have faith in Jesus"peoplewill understand i tthrough that grid a personalreligion,perference....
That faith is never used in the NT
Faith TURNS ONLY on the truthfulnessof what is believed, nto sincerity ...VAIN
1 Cor 15 faith in Jesus isfalse... if he is not risen
Faith is a God given ability tosee what is true and to believeit
if it's not true, it' snot faith
maybe presumption, gullibility,indegstion, tradition, stupidity .. but it'snot faith.
Which is why the NT is always pushing the truthfulness of jesus,... historical revelation.. real time of history.. .witness soimportant.. why it's so importnat people touched, and heard,and saw ... muultiple witnesses...
HISTORICAL!!! not just now...
faith is a persevering faith
Woman's faith perseveres..
Jairus gives up... people gives up.
REF: Hebrews talks about persevering faith
APP: persevere in faith
not the faith of the strong, but weak,not of the bold, of the frightened, not
the object of faith!!!
Jairus was named, she was nothe's important
Jairus ruler over synagogue,woman not allowed
Jairus seeks healing for another,her for herself
Jairus comes form the front, she sneeks upfrom behind, he coudl dot hat, she couldnot
Jairus bold persistence.. come withme... // she is frieghtened, ashamed...
End of day she has faith and jairus does not.
Get that... the difference ...
His faith is faltering...
So the sandwhich allows us tosee what true faith is ...
got up, walk, eat
Jesus will say he came not toserve but to be served
Jesus will institute a newcovenant based on his blood
Approach to Jesus
The interruptable Jesus
outsider vs insider
Her name is not given (or remembered), and she has no position. Her only identification isher shame, a menstrual hemorrhage. She must approach Jesus from behind, whereasJairus approaches Jesus face to face. Jairus, in other words, is a person of status andprivilege. Edwards Jr., James R. (2009-10-05). The Gospel according to Mark (Pillar NewTestament Commentary) (Kindle Locations 3338-3340). Eerdmans Publishing Co A.Kindle Edition.

AMAZED 11. ἔκστασις ekstasis; from 1839; a displacement (of themind), i.e. bewilderment, ecstasy:—amazement(1), astonishment(2),completely*(1), trance(3) Thomas, R. L. (1998). New American StandardHebrew-Aramaic and Greek dictionaries : updated edition. Anaheim:Foundation Publications, Inc.
A section on the nature andpower of the kingdom (Mark 4 &amp;5)
All are moments of complete desperatino -meaning, they have no solutin, no hope. All theirability and expertise cannot do anything. No onecan help.
Storm fishermen who know the sea cannot doanything. They think they are going to die. They don'teven ask for help. They just question his care, his love.
Demoniac "no one can subdue him". Forget helping him,they just want to subdue him and they cant. He doesn't have1 demon, he has 6000 demons. He's completely out ofcontrol.
Woman has tried everything, "spent all thatshe had"(v26) and was not better but getting"worse". Going backwards. No more resources
Ruler Daughter is at point of death. This ruler is asking Jesus.Already conflicts with religious rulers, butthis ruler is desparate.And finally, they say "don't bother the master"she is dead. Nouse. No help. Just weep.
All display an incredible amount of power
Display of absolute power over creation
3 words calm the waves and the see
He speaks to it directly, does not prayto the Father. Authority resides inHim.
So great is his power, he sleepsthrough the storm
Displayed power over demonic world
The demons speak of a time Jesus willtorment them (even as they are tormentingthe man)
They must ask for permission to go intothe pigs they are under his ultimateauthority
Jesus says 1 word "go"and they go
Displayed power over sickness(bleeding woman)
Just a touch of his garment, even when heis not directing the power, heals thiswoman!
Displayed power over death (Jairus daughter)
Jesus displays his power over death!
All happened immediately
she healed immediatel
5:42 immediatley girl got up
All are brought to fear
storm 4:41 "filled with great fear"
demoniac the peopel feared
woman 5:33 fear
ruler 5:36 fear
All are brought to his feet
Ruler 5:22 "he fell at his feet"
woman 5:33 "felld own before him"
demoniac 5:15"sitting there"
Faith is the issue!
QUOTE: Kyper sovereign overall things... do we believe that?
But is that the issue? Is that all He is?
ILL: Some view of Jesus goodteacher, helps us, directs us...
Peopel are offended by this typeof Jesus.... his claim tosovereignty
What does the woman teach us? It teaches us thatto be in touch, abide, connected to jesus heals thebroken things of our lives tha tnothing else canheal
GOD POINT: Jesus raises people from the dead.The power to perform resurrection is a Godpoint.
So many lessons on faith here
touch him but then jesussays tell me your story
faith comes and asks
faith presses through the crowd
faith comes from desperation(for both in this story)
Faith when it seems all is lost
