A large crowd followed and pressed around Jesus. And a woman was among the crowd around Him, who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind Him in the crowd and touched His cloak, because she thought, “If I just touch His clothes, I will be healed.” (faith as small as a mustard seed.) Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.
At once Jesus realized that power(D) had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?”
“You see the people crowding against You,” His disciples answered, “and yet You can ask, ‘who touched me?’ ”
But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at His feet and, trembling with fear, told Him the whole truth. Jesus said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”
Jesus continued to the house, where Jesus “saw a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly” (Mark 5:38). He informed all those present that the girl was not dead but asleep. He then went upstairs and restored the girl to life. In Mark’s account, the Aramaic phrase “Talitha kum” (transliterated into Greek as ταλιθα κουμ and meaning, “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”) is attributed to Jesus.
The combined stories have been used as an example of intercalation, where one incident is inserted within another, linked in this case by the connection between the 12-year ailment and the 12-year-old girl.
Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me (Paul) His prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God. 2 Timothy 1:8
But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping. 2 Peter 2:1-3
