A Healing Mirale : The Raising of Jairus’ Daughter.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Question1 The healing miracle I will choose to write about is the Raising of Jairus' Daughter. Jesus had just returned from the country of the Genasenes. In the crowd that gathered around Jesus, there was a man called Jairus. Jairus was a ruler of one of the local synagogues. Jairus' daughter was very ill; he pleaded with Jesus to cure his little girl, who at this time was lying on her sick bed at home, dying. On the way to Jairus' house, Jesus cured the woman with the haemorrhage. Before they arrived at Jairus' house, they received a message saying that the daughter had died while they were on the way to cure her. But Jesus said to Jarius not to worry but to have sufficient faith. He took Peter, James and John into the house where the girl was surrounded with people crying and wailing in their distress. ...read more.

Middle

Jesus stood up and commanded the wind to stop, he said, 'Be quiet!' and he said to the waves, 'Be still!' The wind died down, and there was a great calm. Then Jesus said to his disciples, 'Why are you frightened? Have you still no faith?' But they were terribly afraid and said to one another 'who is this man? For even the wind and the waves obey him!' To Jesus, in this story, speaking to the wind and waves is like trying to speak to an evil spirit, and the wind and waves are trying to destroy the good, which is Jesus. Again this story focuses on faith. The exorcism I will choose to write about is The Epileptic Boy. A huge crowd gathered round, when people heard it Jesus was coming to see what was the matter, they rushed over to greet him. ...read more.

Conclusion

Jesus asked the father how long has the boy been like this? The father said he had been like this ever since he was a child, he also said that the spirit has tried to kill him by throwing him into the fire and into water. The father then said to take pity on them and help them if he possibly could. Jesus said 'Yes, if you yourself can! Everything is possible for the person who has faith.' The father replied 'I do have faith but not enough. Help me to have more!' Jesus noticed the crowd gathering, so he ordered the spirit to come out of the boy. The spirit screamed, and threw the boy into a bad fit; it looked like the boy had died. But Jesus took the boy by the hand helped him to his feet. After Jesus had gone indoor, the disciples asked Jesus why could not they drive the spirit out. He answered 'Only prayer can drive this kind out, nothing else can.' ...read more.
