‘Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?’
However Jesus was not affected by this, and to the ruler of the synagogue he said….
‘Do not fear, only believe!’
Jesus then set off again with his disciples Peter, James and John. When he reached Jairus’s house, he found a tumult (people were wailing and weeping loudly.
Jesus first said ‘Why do you make a tumult and weep?’. The people took no hee of what he said and laughed in his face. However, he never bothered of the crowd and went inside with the mother and father where the child was.
Taking the hand of the child, Jesus said ‘Talitha cumi’; which means ‘Little girl I say unto you wake up and arise’, and with that the little girl got up and walked to the amazement of the crowd.
