Jesus heals the hemorrhaging woman

What we're talking about

In Mark 5 we see the miracle of Jesus healing the hemorrhaging woman. The scripture tells us that she had been bleeding for 12 years which would make her ritually unclean and an outcast within Jewish culture. When she hears that Jesus is coming to town she tries to see him because she believes that if she just touches him she will be healed. But before she could be healed she had to do three things

  1. Recognize Jesus' power
  2. Revere Him
  3. Reach out for help

Scripture

Mark 5:25-34
